We went in during an evening worship service and briefly participated. The organ was beautiful but we didn't stay too long as the service was in Polish, which we do not speak and the church was also quite crowded. We returned the next day on a guided tour of Krakow, just in time for the daily opening of the alter (noon). We believe this is the most beautiful church in Krakow and one of the nicest anywhere.
The church was built in the 13th century and rebuild in the 14th century. Every hour (day and night), a trumpeter plays part of a song from a window in the tallest of the two towers. It ends in mid-note. This commemorates the famous 13th century trumpeter who was shot in the throat while successfully sounding the alarm of a pending Mongol attack.
