Very nice church, free to enter and staff are very friendly. Plenty to see as it took about 45 minutes to get all the photos I needed.

After visiting the Wawel Castle, I stopped at this church. The mass was going on during my visit so I waited for it to finish before I walked around. I admired the beautiful altar and other decorations. Took,pictures before moving on to my next attractions.

Very good looking interior, also had a very good mass, no frills. Enjoyable also to just sit and look around. Awesome.

This is the claim made outside for this church situated next to the Wawel Castle. It is definitely very ornate and has a huge visual impact on entry but personally I prefer St Marys and Holy Cross for their traditional character

located next to the Wawel castle, this is a beautiful church. Its interiors are far more opulent than its exterior and despite the church looking closed shut, its heavy door eventually opened. Worth a 5-minute visit.

I'm running out of ways to describe nice churches! This was one of the nicest (and there is a lot!). Next to the castle so you might see it in passing.

Visited on Friday 6th October. We were walking into the old town and came across this beautiful church and were amazed at the fine detail on the façade.

While many visitors rave over the Wawel Cathedral, this Church, which unlike Wawel, allows photography inside, is quite lavish and well worth a side visit. No words can describe its beauty, so view the photos.

The Church Of St Bernardine, St Bernard's Church ( kosciol Sw Bernardyna ) is one of the most beautiful churches in Krakow but also one of the most overlooked by the hordes of tourists that head to the beautiful Wawel Castle and the beautiful Cathedral...More

Beautiful church with free audio tour (we gave a small donation well worth it). This church is at the bottom of the castle hill. All of our group loved this place. The artwork inside is stunning.
