St Adalbert’s Church

Rynek Główny 2, Kraków

This Romanesque church is one of the oldest historical buildings in Krakow. It dates back to the10th c., although what you see today was reconstructed in the17th c. Legend has it that the church was built on the site St. Adalbert gave sermons from. In 1241, Cracovians found shelter there during the Mongol invasion led by Batu-Khan's army. Several steps down lead us to the interior of the church, as the ground level is now higher than during the Middle Ages. Once inside, one should not miss the. Figure of Christ on the cross on the roodscreen. The crypt houses an exhibition on the history of Krakow's Main Market Square, where one can see wooden water pipes dating from the15th-16th centuries.
