St. Florian's Church was built between 1185 and 1216. It was burnt down many times in the 12th, 16th and 17th centuries, and the current appearance of the church is the result of a Baroque renovation after the Polish–Swedish wars.

From outside, the church does not look as much, but inside it's a good Baroque appearance, with also a stunning late Gothic triptych of St. John the Baptist.

St. Florian's is a BEAUTIFUL church, right off of Matejko Square. This is a special Blessed Pope John Paul II site, as he was an Associate Pastor here as a Priest, (Father Karol Wojtyla).

When I stopped into St. Florian's, I was just in time for Eucharistic Adoration. I was praying for a Miracle for my wife, and one was granted to us! It has been submitted to the Postulator for Blessed John Paul II's Cause for Sainthood, and I would HIGHLY recommend St. Florian's Church to anyone and everyone who visits Krakow! Whether you are praying for a Miracle or are just visiting, this is a very Holy and special place!

This church is one of many many in the city of Krakow. It is as beautiful as are all of them. I have never come across so many churches just in one place before, for this Krakow is most famous. We visited hundreds during our stay and this is one of the larger ones. Excellent sculptures,ceilings, paintings and statues. The altar is magnificent band there is an air of respect and admiration in the place. It is like all the churches here, used by the locals and you can often witness mass and all if them are lovely to meditate and pray within. This is one of the more popular churches in the town.

Like all churches at Krakow, St. Florians is worth a visit. Impressive Baroq style, lots of golden angels and other things worth discovering.

Wonderful little church of the 16th century situated next to the much older 11th century church. There are some wonderful statues on the front gate and if you walk south from the main square you can't really miss it.

This is a beautiful small church located on Ulica Warszawska just to the north of the Barbican and the Grunwald monument. A fairly old church which is very significant in history for this area of the city and one of the oldest churches in Krakow which belies its more recent baroque styling. The church seems pretty much open to the public but alas a sermon was on-going when I visited so couldn't really pop inside to see the beautiful interior which I had heard about. Still another fine church within the city and if you are looking at the Barbican and the Grunwald monement then this is a short distance to the north.

Each time I visit Krakow I try to spend time in some of the amazing churches. This is one that has many beautiful works of art in it and is absolutely beautiful inside.

Nice churche to discover behind Florian gate, bit a side but architecture merits to be seen. You ll find it 200m from Florian gate when going straight ahead from gate

The church was only about a block away from our hotel. We stopped in for a few minutes-very nice exterior and interior. JP II was a priest here.

We love visiting this church as it is so beautiful. The exterior is lovely also. The main church is roped off but you can see most of it from the pews at the back. Always very busy as it is well used by the locals. Lovely altars, sculptures and paintings. Well worth a visit.
