St Andrew’s Church

ul. Grodzka 56, Kraków

The Romanesque church dates from the12th c. and is one of the oldest buildings in Poland. Its thick walls (1.5 m) and narrow windows prove that it also had a defensive function. Its small interior is stunning with its splendid Baroque decor; its rococo boat-shaped pulpit is especially noteworthy. The treasury of the convent of Sisters of St Clara adjoining the church houses precious reliquaries from the13thc., a unique mosaic with Our Lady dating from the turn of the12th/13th centuries and a set of Nativity figurines from the14thc., among the oldest in Europe.
