Construction of this historic Romanesque church was completed in 1098. Simple and elegant to look at from the outside, it was funded by a Polish Statesman known as Palatine Sieciech. It's one of the oldest buildings in the city. Architecturally the church is interesting as it is one of the few surviving examples of European Fortress Churches. When the Mongols attacked in 1241 this was one of the only churches to survive. Check out the octagonal towers; the Baroque domes were added in 1639. The decoration in the interior of the church is much more lavish than the exterior, done in Baroque and Rococo. Check out the pulpit, which has been carved in the shape of a boat. There is an eighteenth-century organ.
By most accounts, the church is closed to visitors except by prior arrangement. But some lucky tourists have reported it being open when they visited. Take some pictures from the outside and move on.

This is one of Krakow's oldest churches. It's actually part of a monastery, which doesn't seem to be open to the public. When we went the church was open but we could only stand in the back and had a limited view. It seems very pretty. I'm not sure if/when you can actually visit. It's very pretty inside and, since you're probably visiting Peter and Paul next door, you should definitely stop in and take a look.
Fantastically preserved romanesque Church built between in the 11th century. It a fortress Church that was used for defensive purposes in the olden days.
Nice place in a nice town
One of Krakow's oldest churches, and worth a stop.
Unique church in Kraków. It's a merger of baroque, roman style and gothic in a piece of architecture. Higly recommend seeing it!
