(600+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Church
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.
