Owner description: Decorated with vibrant colors and Stanislaw Wyspianski’s famous stained glass window “God the Father.”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

The Franciscan Church is a brick building dating back many centuries. If you're in the Main Square, walk down Bracka at the one end of Silk Hall towards Franciszkanska Street, the church will be right across the street. The unusual feature of this church is the bright, abstract stained glass window by Stanislaw Wyspianski.

As you exit, be sure to look up at the window over the entrance. It is a depiction of God by Stanislas Wyspianki, a brilliant man in many endeavors. It is very modern for his era.

As the Wyspianski Museum was closed, we were especially pleased to see his lovely windows in this church. Wonderful colours! It is a fine, old gothic church.

Most only heard about Pope John Paul II's window next door, but the window about the entrance to this church is fantastically powerful! The church has more than 3 smaller churches inside and each with its own decor and purpose. interesting to contemplate.
