  • Worth a look here during a visit to Krakow. Beautiful location, great Interior, very well maintained. Less tourists than in churches on the main market square and on the way to the Wawel Castle. The unique crypt deserving of Wyspiańskim and Długoszem.

  • Baroque church with interiors, the manner of the churches of Krakow, a heavy plaster and plaster structures almost Rococo, Baroque painted black, gold-colored painting Cupids galore, with a few exceptions of true rolling. There is a crypt with sarcophagi of important Polish artists.

  • Call it colloquially Skalka or Church of the rock, away (a little) of the tourist routes, at the end of a narrow street and near the river. The environment we liked more than anything else in a whole, gardens, silence, tranquility. Do not enter the crypt, where is the Pantheon of illustrious poles (artists and writers) for the comments read on TA. The sunset seems ideal for the visit. There is a statue of Juan Pablo II, in front of the Church.

  • Peaceful church inside beautiful grounds, the shrine to the side of the altar is worth visiting (only 1,000 years old).
  • Very nice atmosphere, impressive from the inside
  • This beautiful church is most of the time not crowded. The lays a bit down the normal path around Kraków but it worth the detour. If there is a long line at Wawel Cathedral you can go here to have a look around.
  • In my opinion the most beautiful church in Cracow.
  • Good place for weddings

Where to stay in Krakow

Krakow ranks among one of Europe's increasingly popular tourist destinations, which is reflected in the rising costs of comfortable lodgings. The best hotels are concentrated in and around the historical old town, where five-star luxury comes at a very steep price. Old town hotels place you just steps from fine shops and restaurants, as well as the city's main museums and galleries. However, if your trip involves a tight budget, avoid the central district and check out mid-range hotels and economical hostels in one of the outlying neighborhoods.
