5 Majestic Churches Not To Miss In Krakow

One of the most surprising things for us in Krakow was the vast number of huge and gorgeous churches in its relatively small Old Town. We love architecture and we admire beautiful churches anyway, but Krakow amazed us with some outstanding one!

In this photo essay we are sharing our favorites in pictures and encourage you to visit some of them while visiting Krakow. Bonus: except one (St Mary), they are all free to visit!

St. Mary Basilica

This is the most famous one located on the Main Square and our opinion is that it’s definitely worth to buy the ticket to see its interior as well. It’s not just huge, but it’s very colorful and the ceiling is painted to look like the dark blue sky with millions of bright stars.

Wawel Cathedral

Wawel Cathedral is not an ordinary church. I mean, we haven’t seen such a mixture of architecture styles in one church ever! The Cathedral is basically a Gothic church inside a Baroque church. This mixture is typical to several churches in Krakow, but Wawel Cathedral is the most obvious one. (And we haven’t ever learned about architecture, btw, except our sightseeing tours.)

Church of St. Francis of Assisi

This one was a nice surprise. We haven’t planned to visit it and it doesn’t even look special from the outside, but since we walked right next to it anyway, we decided to go in. The interior is the most colorful we’ve ever seen in a Christian church!

A beautiful Baroque Church which is attached to the Jagiellonian University dating back to the middle ages.

Skałka & the Pauline Monastery

Skałka & the Pauline Monastery is a bit out of the center which makes it a quiet, peaceful place.
