ST. ADALBERT’S CHURCH

Located on the Main Square, The church dates back to turn of the 10th and 11th century. It is believed that St. Adalbert used to preach his sermons in that very spot, before departing on a mission to bring Christianity to Prussia.

Originally a building with a wooden construction, the church was partially reconstructed in the Baroque style in the 17th and 18th centuries. The vestry was built at that time, along with the Baroque dome and the St. Jan Nepomucen Chapel (renamed after St. Wincenty Kadłubek in 1781). Curiously, the Romanesque windows and portal were preserved. The interior houses a 15th-century crucifix, a painting of St. Adalbert by the Renaissance painter Kasper Kurcz, and 17th-century angel figures, made by Antoni Frączkiewicz. The crypt of the church has been adapted by the Archeological Museum to show a permanent exhibit of “The History of Kraków’s Main Square”.
