  • A church containing wonderful things. Of gilding see you in here, impressive, sumptuous. Admission is free and highly recommended. This place of worship is worth a visit.

  • In the center of the Jewish quarter and surrounded by synagogues it is spectacular to be the Catholic basilica of the Jewish quarter. The interior is beautiful. Worthy of including your visit within the District of Kazimiers circuit. Free tour.

  • Tucked away but worth a visit particularly if you like Baroque interiors. The gold in the altar and altar pieces is simply overwhelming especially if you can catch it when the sun is bouncing off it.  more »

  • I can't speak Polish, forgive me please. I came during a ceremony - I believe it was a baptism but I can't be certain due to language barrier. Everyone was very respectful and quiet, and the Basilica itself is beautiful inside. It smells of lovely incense, it is very well-kept, and has an aura of power about it. Very beautiful.
  • Beautiful interior. I chanced upon this place during an evening mass. The people were polite and allowed me to observe.
  • Beautiful must see in Kazimierz
  • Nice church with a lot of history. Missing signs in English though
  • monumental, ancient, historical - well-worth a visit, must include in your itinerary, iteresting legend related with the church origin.
