Dating from the medieval period, St. Egidius Basilica showcases early Gothic architecture and serves as one of Poprad's main historical attractions. Originally built during the 13th century, the church today stands over a square of the same name in the center of town. Visit the church and explore its interior, notable for the double-aisled construction native to the region.

  • Extremely interesting sacral of the 15th century. The Interior of intricately carved benches. Very interesting collection of "swing" altars placed on the columns of the side aisles. Very old sculptures m.in. Veit Stoss, and doing the greatest impression on me very high stone Tabernacle, until you do not want to believe that in the stone can be so precisely sculpt decorative details. And of course, the neo-Gothic wooden altar (17 m in height) comparable to that of "our" St. Mary's in Krakow. Recommend guided tours-provides a lot of interesting information not only about the Church, but also on those "dark" times (middle ages).

  • For 3€ you can buy a ticket to visit the church inside as well as climb the tower to admire the view on the old market. The staircase, however, is very narrow and scarcely lit.  more »
  • Church unless otherwise nondescript from the outside, but inside is awesome. Nice stained glass Windows, wooden altar from the 14th century is a great. Feel the grandeur, micro-carved seasoned. It is recommended.
