Corpus Christi Church (Kosciol Bozego Ciala), Krakow
(4.7/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Taking up a whopping two city blocks, the impressive structure of Corpus Christi Church (Kosciol Bozego Ciala) required over 100 years to complete and still stands today as one of the city's largest holy sites. Completed in the 14th century, the Roman Catholic monastery-church has a distinctly Gothic style but bears some Romanesque and Baroque notes. Step inside to behold the three cavernous naves, high altar, organ, and golden boat-shaped pulpit. Swedish soldiers robbed the church in 1655, which explains the interior's predominantly Baroque style. Visitors are free to roam inside, except during mass.

  • This huge gothic church is marked by far not all tourist maps and not every tourist route passes through this place. but in vain. the building attracts and astonishes the eye with its size, internal decoration and a mysterious atmosphere. If you were near-don't be lazy, be sure to check out the show!

  • It is an incredible architecture and an example of baroque style. ıf you have a chance, you can visit that church.
  • A really worth visiting place. Very old and not so crowded as others in the town center. Entrance is free of charge. Impressive mix of gothic and baroque styles. See my pics attached
  • Corpus Christi Church in Krakow is a fine Gothic church dating from the mid-1300s. The impressive brick church has a rich interior with several side chapels. Notable features include a high altar from 1634, the superb choir stalls of 1629, and an interesting mid-18th-century pulpit shaped like a boat. An upper chapel contains a Madonna by Lucas Cranach (c.1520). The adjacent monastery dates from 1405.
  • Simply astonishing. You have to be there to believe it. I'd give it the last star if you were allowed to take pictures inside, and the entry rules weren't so constricted.
  • One of the best church at Kazimierz. Beautiful inside.
