St. Joseph's Church

  ul. Zamojskiego 2 ,   Podgórze          (+48) 12 656 17 56     more than a year ago

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. Standing before the rocky outcroppings of Krzemionki, the area surrounding the church has been turned into a small landscape park and sculpture garden featuring several benches and seating areas, an outdoor play area for young children, and the 1832 belfry - all that remains of the original temple, dismantled due to design flaws.


Visiting allowed only 30mins before and after mass.

The most beautiful church in Krakow. Beats even that of the old square.

Certainly one of Kraków's most beautiful churches. Definitely worth crossing the river for.
