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!

Beautiful e sacred place. I liked more the basilica with the sacred picture. But the sanctuary has to host better the foreigners. Many texts and are only in polish. Many people who works there do not treat the tourists in a kindly way, specially if do speak polish. People who work in the restaurant are rude and in some souvenir shops they also treat you bad. The Sancturay should have people that are conected with the philosophy of Mercy of this place and treat the tourists accordingly. But still worth to visit. Jesus, I trust you.
One of the most beautiful churches in Poland! It's a Catholic Basilica dedicated the Divine Mercy devotion. I was privileged to visit it during World Youth Day 2016 in Poland, which was also during the Year of Mercy. There were thousands of pilgrims- we prayed the Rosary as we walked to the Sanctuary from John Paul II Center, which is directly opposite (walking distance). Confession booths had also been set up outside. We then attended a beautiful mass inside the Basilica. This Sanctuary is a must visit if you're in Krakow.
Just pray! The very place of the cult of the Divine Mercy of Faustyna Kowalska. Simple chapel but very good place for prayer. Transmission on-line also available. In a walking distance a completely new shrine of Divine Mercy. This second shrine has nothing to do with the historic presence of Faustyna Kowalska. Any way it is also a place that belongs to the entire complex.
A place of prayer. There are two main places that you have to visit. One is the chapel where they do the Perpetual Holy Adoration. It will be great if we could be here at least one hour here. The big church is on the other side of this small church.
Perfect place in Krakow!
