Franciscan Church (Kosciol Franciszkanow), Krakow
(4.6/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Home of a replica Shroud of Turin, Franciscan Church (Kosciol 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.

  • A vibrant and breatheless church like this deserves the whole holiday in Krakow. Be careful and do not disturb of course this is a holy place. So silent and peacefull but also very beautiful 
  • If you have to limit your choice of churches [there are so many to choose from in Krakow] this is one well worth a visit. It is a pity they do not have more lights on so that you can fully appreciate ...  more »
  • I was haunted by this beautiful church! I'm not a fanatical religious structures but in Krakow worth joining in the churches, all magnificent and rich in art, but the Franciscan church is wonderful: the stained glass and the colors are from enchantment and the atmosphere is unique. I was lucky enough to attend choir practice and I paused a long time ... it was very exciting! I highly recommend it.
