St. Joseph's

Presiding over the heart of historic Podgórze on the south side of the district's main square, this unmissable neo-gothic juggernaut was built between 1905-09 on the design of Jan Sas-Zubrzycki. Dominated by an 80 metre clock tower, elaborate masonry dressing, gargoyles and sculptures of saints, St. Joseph's slender, yet imposing brick facade rates among the most beautiful in Kraków and is gorgeously illuminated at night. The interior is no less beautiful and visitors should also note the abandoned 1832 belfry that stands on a rocky outcropping behind the church - all that remains of the original temple, dismantled due to design flaws.
