We traveled with a group of Pilgrims from the United States, and timed our visit here to coincide with the feast day of St. Faustina. This is such a special church, for so many reasons which were mentioned by other reviewers. We were blessed to celebrate Mass here in one of the chapels.

I was brought here during the "Trabant" Tour to the massive steelworks and the model "communist era" town. The church was blessed by Pope John Paul 11. Spacious and architecturally unique. Worth seeing if in the area.

Whether you are a Catholic visitor or not, there is still a chance that you will discover the appeal and gracefulness that this place emanates with. As Krakow itself is an important site for Polish believers of many denominations (with 138 shrines operating there), a visit to the Divine Mercy Sanctuary in Krakow makes for a nice complement to the...

Lovely chapel and location. Peaceful and nice history. Takes a bit of work to get there on public transport but doable. Was too late to get to church but enjoyed the visit to older chapel with St. Faustynas remains.

This was a lovely place to see. St Faustina's remains are located here, although the queue to see her was quite large at the time of my visit. Plenty of shops to buy souvenirs.

Besides being a place for relaxing and contemplating, it has also a gorgeous architecture. It even reminded of some constructions by Niemeyer, a brazilian architect.

We took a taxi from a city centre hotel for a quick visit on the way home from Czestochowa. I'd advise booking your return taxi in advance as we had a bit of a job ordering one from reception. The Shrine is a little oasis of peace a relatively short distance from the city centre. There is opportunity to see... More

I was surprised how much I like the modern architecture of this split level basilica. This is a devotional hub for St. Faustina and the Divine Mercy Devotion. There are a few sights on the grounds.
