Kosciol Sw Piotra i Pawla - the church of the Saints Peter and Paul. It's the first baroque building in Cracow and was erected by jesuits who arrived around 1580 after fleeing the reformation.
It was sadly closed when I went there but guidebooks describe the interior as pretty sober: the most interesting characteristic are the 12 statues of the Apostoles on the outside gate. They are all really sculpted with care and are very daunting - the facial expressions in particular - some statues really look alive

Address: Ulica Grodzca, Old Town
Directions: along the pedestrian street that links the rynek with the wawel

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
