Krakow

SS Peter & Paul Church

  ul. Benedyktyńska 37 ,   No District         26 Sep 2019
The Saints Peter & Paul Church itself is impressive, and does finally remind you that you are visiting a devout monastic order rather than some cheesy tourist-trap. Built, destroyed, and rebuilt throughout a tumultuous history, the church exhibits facets of gothic, baroque and modern style. The current building has been slowly reconstructed since 1947, eight years after the order’s final return to the area. The current form of the church had taken shape by 1968 (when the monastery reclaimed the rank of abbey) although even today there continue to be improvements. If you come in the afternoon you’re likely to hear some of the Latin-language chanting the monks are known to do and you are, of course, welcome to take part in mass should you have the urge. The church is like any other, a holy place of worship, so avoid flash-photography, inappropriate attire, and using your outside voice. The Benedictine monks are quite friendly chaps, but they are still devout men of faith and the church is still their house of worship.
