We were there on a Saturday so it was understandably busy but that was not the problem. The door opened about 15 minutes later than the scheduled time and the controllers couldn’t understand why people were not happy as the line grew. Nobody controlled the line which meant tour groups and their arrogant guides were pushing in at the front with their groups. Outside of these things the church was amazing to see and definitely worth a visit when in Krakau. I would recommend getting there early and being at the front of the line as they let a lot of people in and it became very hard to move around towards the end of our visit.

Thank you kindly for your, nonetheless, positive opinion. We know that there is always something to improve, so we do appreciate your words. In high season at the opening hours it is really crowded, so if you would like to contemplate in a bit more peacefull atmosphere next time you're in our beautifull city I would recommand a "lunch time" for a visit. Best regards!

This was an amazing place to see both inside and out. The architecture outside is interesting and it looks great when lit up at night. You can hear the bugle call outside every hour from the tower. The painting on the inside was beautiful too and was well worth a visit as it is quite breathtaking.

Visited this church during a recent visit to Krakow mid January. Was really surprised to see a Christmas tree and other decorations still adoring the church, in fact they were all over the place!!!

The most beautiful place I visited in Krakow, without a doubt. You have to pay an extra 5 zloty to take pictures but it was definitely worth the price.
