This historic evangelical church is the seat of the local Lutheran Parish. The previous church on this location used to be a 12th century Romanesque construct. The building you see today in Baroque style was erected in 1640 and consecrated 4 years later. The main highlights of the church are the late 14th century Gothic crucifix (thought to be miraculous), and a painting of Christ Silencing a Storm by Henryk Siemiradzki from the late 19th century. Otherwise there is generally a lack of sculptures and paintings inside the temple. Calvinists do not believe in the placements of idols and art inside places of worship. This makes it unusual among the churches of Krakow.

  • Lovely Lutheran church. While more sparsely decorated than its Catholic neighbour, the stepped ornamental columns along the inside perimeter of the church are very interesting, and the overall feeling is light and airy. Lovely Sunday morning service, and friendly and welcoming ministers.

  • Arguably one of the most beautiful churches in a city full of resplendent religious edifices.

  • This city has lots of churches, many on this street itself.

  • Piękny , klimatyczny, wspaniała muzyka organowa. Fantastyczne, spokojne miejsce do kontemplacji. Nie wiedziałam, że można odwiedzić krypty. Muszę więc wybrać się tam ponownie.

  • Z uwagi na brak akceptacji przez mieszkańców Krakowa jego historia nie była zwyczajna . Wybudowany w latach 1637 - 40 w stylu wczesnego baroku , wg projektu Jana Trevano dla Zgromadzenia Karmelitanek Bosych. W dniu 27 07 1816 roku już jako opuszczony , przekazany został parafii ewangelickiej jako zadośćuczynienie krzywdy za utracony budynek zborowy przy ul. św. Jana .
