The most splendid baroque Church

A must see while in Wroclaw. I visited many churches all over the world, and this church is in my top 10. Take a private tour and learn amazing history of the church.

The university church, built at the same time as the beautiful university buildings. Wonderful high-baroque interior.

Exterior is nice but not striking. And you are hit when you cross the entrance door. It's probably the most magnificent interior of Wrocław's churches. It's a barroque church from late 17th century. Vaulted nave, musical organs, altar and pulpit - all deserve a praise for the craftsmanship. Located just next to the main university bulding so easy to combine... More

Having visited several churches that we had found were rather plain in comparison to those we had visited in Krakow we were amazed to see the difference here. the interior is by far the best we came across and should be considered for a visit.

Not for everybody, but if you like Baroque architecture and churches, this has to be the place to visit. The statuary is simple marvellous. I stand in awe at the craftsmen who were inspired by God to create such beauty.

This church compliments perfectly the magnificent halls of the university. You should visit it right after the university. You can see the same color scheme and I am sure the same artists were at work. At the same time, it is surely one of the most beautiful baroque churches in Wroclaw (it is inappropriate to compare gothic with baroque, so... More

This was our first holiday to Wrocław and as impressed as I was by the nightlife in was totally blown away by the stunning architecture of this city and especially the churches here. We had been to Cathedral Island and that was a wonderful experience and we had climbed up the towers of both Church of St Elizabeth and Mary... More

A lot of the churches in Wroclaw would be considered plain compared to their counterparts in other cities, but not this one. This is a fabulous baroque interior, even more amazing when you see the picture just inside the front door showing 2 bombs that came through the ceiling but thankfully never exploded.

If you are in Wroclaw and have to pick only one church to visit, this is the one! Just step in (free admission) and feel the atmosphere of this 3 times centenarian, baroque church.
