  • Beautiful church that stands in the main square in Krakow. In the hour a bugler plays from a window in the church tower, in addition to the bells. Just a shame that some tourists ignore the (pictorial) requests not to take photos inside the church. Rude!
  • Let me start by saying that I am not a religious person but still like to visit religious buildings from time to time to keep an open mind as well as just see the different structures and designs. This basilika is quite beautiful inside with many good paintings and some statues in as well. I think religious persons will love it.
