Overview

Highlights

  • Skip the line and get inside Krakow's most famous church, a symbol of Krakow and Market Square since the 13th century
  • See the vault covered with stars, which was painted by Jan Matejko himself - with the help of students of the Academy of Fine Arts
  • None other than Pablo Picasso called this beautiful church the eight wonder of the world!

Description

Skip the line and march straight into Krakow's most magnificent church, St. Mary's Basilica, where the giant altar of Veit Stoss is considered the greatest masterpiece of Gothic art in Poland.

St. Mary's Basilica has been casting medieval shadows over Krakow's Market Square since the 13th century. It's one of the most magical buildings in this fairytale city.

But skip the line and head inside for one of the most stunning altars you've ever seen - the altar of Veit Stoss. Allegedly, Pablo Picasso himself called it the eighth wonder of the world (and he kind of had an eye for detail).

The 14th-century stained-glass windows and colorful wall paintings fill the interior with light and color, and the richly detailed blue star vault of the nave is absolutely eye-catching.

Don't miss the chance to see this while in Krakow!

Insider tip

If you're there for the solemn opening of the altar at 11:50, daily, or the hejnał (bugle call) every hour from the taller tower, you'll get a real traditional treat on top.
