  • This church is very unassuming on the outside, but once you find yourself indoors, it is majestic! The amount of gold covered altars are impressive  more »
  • This church is located near the Jewish Quarter. Another magnificent church (one of many in Krakow) richly decorated in gold and carved wood/stone, particularly the altar and the choir chairs.  more »

  • 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.
