This 1335 church Gothic church was commissioned by King Casimir III the Great. It’s said that after a theft, a miraculous light revealed the location of the church treasure box nearby, where the thief had abandoned it in guilt. The first thing people usually notice is the unusually shaped bell tower. Once you step inside though, the overlapping between the Polish Baroque and Polish Gothic immediately stands out. The decorations are majestic. The highlights of the church include a 1750 boat-shaped pulpit, a grand and gilded and towering 1634 high altar with choir stalls from just five years before that, and a statue of a burgher who used to patronise the church. The gilded furniture is pretty too! Make sure to visit during the day, when the light shining in through the stained-glass windows is magical. There’s a cemetery next to the church.

Corpus Christi Church, Krakow Reviews - Write a Review
I can't speak Polish, forgive me please. I came during a ceremony - I believe it was a baptism but I can't be certain due to language barrier. Everyone was very respectful and quiet, and the Basilica itself is beautiful inside. It smells of lovely incense, it is very well-kept, and has an aura of power about it. Very beautiful.
Beautiful interior. I chanced upon this place during an evening mass. The people were polite and allowed me to observe.
Nice church with a lot of history. Missing signs in English though
monumental, ancient, historical - well-worth a visit, must include in your itinerary, iteresting legend related with the church origin.
Amazing Basilica!! With intricate woodwork and statues as well as paintings!
