This Roman Catholic basilica is strikingly unlike the grandly baroque churches you’d expect in Krakow. In fact, the church was completed only in 2002, built on the site of an older Gothic.
Despite being a young church it is still a place of supreme importance. Sister Faustina, whose remains were brought to the original church here in 1966, was beatified here in 1993. She rests on the altar of the church. Even more famously, in 1981, the church became the location of a miraculous healing. This has made the Basilica a destination for more than 2 million pilgrims. It has even been visited by 3 different popes.
The Basilica itself is ellipsoid in shape, and looks like a boat. Outside, there is a 77-meter high observation tower that looks like the boat’s mast. In front of the observation tower is a statue of Pope John Paul II, unveiled here in 2006 by Pope Benedict XVI.
Don’t forget the check the views from tower!

Sanktuarium Bozego Milosierdzia Reviews & Ratings
Mix of really modern and a bit of old. Beautiful blessed adoration service in the chapel.
Beautiful and Spiritual place where you can really feel a presence of God.
A very modern church. I liked the way the light enters inside. There is a belfry that also works as a observation deck but you have to make a donation to visit it.
Very beautiful church you can devote to Jesus Christ
So calm quiet prayer place, recommend.
