This is a symbol of the city. Church with 2 towers. The bugler playing every hour the melody.The great alterpiece of Veit Stos. We like it a lot.

It is nice to see that the Church is functional and gives priority to worshippers. A sacred place indeed with great touch of wealth.

This basilica is the most beautiful one I've seen. It is massive inside and just takes your breath away the minute you walk in. Would recommend wearing modest dress as it is respectful. Definitely visit the basilica if you are in Kraków.

Dear Sir! Unfortunately you are not allowed to use a tripod. The rule helps us keeping control of the professional pictures taken for publications (for which you need an agreemant from the archives). Kind regards.
