"Crazy blue and huge crucifix" Top 5 Page for this destination Basilica of St Mary - Kosciol Mariacki Tip by matcrazy1

  ABOVE THE NAVE

In 1491 great medieval scuptorer Veit Stoss sculptured a stone crucifix that now is part of the late-Baroque altarpiece in the south aisle. And probably he sculptured the magnificent huge crucifix above the nave as well - look at my picture.

Sepulchral monuments of the Krakow rich and worthy fill every corner of the basilica and its twelve chapels. Just walk and admire.
