"Getting married and... pope" Top 5 Page for this destination Basilica of St Mary - Kosciol Mariacki Tip by matcrazy1

by matcrazy1

Once upon a time, long time ago, walking around Basilica and it's nave (on my picture) I was thinking about... how to get married just there - in the most famous of Polish churches. Was I a snob or so?

Not so simple unless you are a member of this parish. As I know it depends on Bishop of Krakow, that time it was cardinal Karol Wojtyla that is pope John Paul II now, haha :-).

It's said that some Poles changed their addresses/registrations (not necesarilly the real place of their stay) to become a member of this church parish and get marry there - it's said that it gives long and happy marriage, hmm... not for sure.
But... think positive whenever you get marry :-))
