Home of a replica Shroud of Turin, Bazylika i Klasztor Franciszkanow was one of the first tall buildings in the city. The church touts remarkable stained-glass windows and murals by Stanisław Wyspiański. Because of the colored-glass panes, the interior bursts with bright hues on sunny days, highlighting other spots of inspiration like the tiles and vivid paint colors. The church is rarely crowded. Photos are allowed in certain areas of the building.

  • Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi is a beautiful gothic church known mostly for the Art-Noveau stained glass windows by Krakow's polymath artist Stanislaw Wyspianski, who also designed and painted the frescoes in the entire church, a monumental undertaking, and one that truly needs to be witnessed. The murals are quite unique as are the stained-glass windows. Entrance is free.
  • The art design is unusual and unique for this city. Very interesting stain glass.
  • I would recommend this place as a prayer place if you're living here. It is a sanctuary, where you can have intimacy. There is also great singing during the Triduum evenings, and sometimes concerts. Other than that, the same lack of anointing of the Spirit and misogynism as everywhere in the local CC, so I wouldn't encourage participating in liturgy.
  • Every Sunday it is possible to have mass in Spanish and Italian.
  • Absolutely gorgeous cathedral!! Must see
