“Franciscan Church”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

The Franciscan Church is very nice inside and do not miss the enormous stain-glass window, famous for its nice colors. Across the church you will find the Bishop's Palace.

“Beautiful stained glass windows by Wyspianski”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

I vist this church several times at least every time I am in Krakow, as I love the syle and colours of the windows created by Wyspianski, especially the huge window over the main entrance that shows God creating the world. it has animals in it, also evoking Saint Francis. It is a beautiful historic place, where one can say a prayer, light a candle, or just sit quietly and soak up the beauty of the surroundings.

“Stunning stained glass windows”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Can only agree with others that this is well worth a visit inside for its stunning, modern, stained glass windows, and the unusual patterned walls.
