Obviously this one is for the windows, stunning. Take a look at the ceiling. No entry charge here.

“Magnificent stained glass”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

It was a cold and snowy afternoon when I went. I actually first went to the Wyspianski Museum and saw Stanislas Wyspianski's drawings and other work before I went over to the church. The inside of the church was very dark but plenty of light came through the glass panels. The stained glass in the church are absolutely gorgeous, very non-traditional, brilliant colors and comtemporary. There are worshippers at the church, so please be respectful.

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2012

We stumbled accross the church while wandering. We were told it was one of Pope John Paul II's favorites, and we can see why. Very serene and calm, with some gems of stained glass and relics.
You won't need a long visit, but should stop in.

“Pope John Paul's favourite church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2012

We were taken to this church by our walking tour guide otherwise we would have missed it. Beautiful church. Was told lots of history about the stain glass window that depicts 'God' apparently the famous artist used a 'tramp' for the model. Also shown the pew where John Paul 11 used to sit when he went to the church.
