About Skalka, Krakow
Dedicated to St. Michael the Archangel and St. Stanislaus Bishop, the church overlooks the location where the latter was killed by order of Polish King Boleslaw II the Bold. St. Stanislaus died in 1079. The Romanesque church built on this location was replaced with a Gothic one in 1472. That building in turn received a Baroque facelift. Some of the country's most distinguished National personalities are interred under the church. This includes diplomats, poets, freedom fighters, historians, artists, painters, sculptors, composers, Theatre directors and even a Nobel Prize recipient (Czeslaw Milosz). The church rises over the Vistula River some distance south of Wavel Hill. For a long while, members of the cult of Stanislaw considered this church an important place of pilgrimage. In fact, some still do.

Skalka, Krakow Reviews - Write a Review
Wonderful interior to this church a must see when in Krakow, beautiful grounds all round excellent.🖒
Nice place but difficult to find the entrance
Peaceful church inside beautiful grounds, the shrine to the side of the altar is worth visiting (only 1,000 years old).
This beautiful church is most of the time not crowded. The lays a bit down the normal path around Kraków but it worth the detour. If there is a long line at Wawel Cathedral you can go here to have a look around.
