Dominican Church in Kraków

 

Home > What to see > Old Town > Dominican Church


Dominican Church was built in the second half of the 13th century. It was rebuilt many times in 14th century but until today remained as a magnificent Gothic building. Some of its mortuary chapels were made in Renaissance and Baroque style with beautiful rich decorations and furnishings.


Particularly interesting is the Zbieranski family Baroque chapel at the west end of the north aisle and a Mannerist chapel of the Myszkowski family in the first bay of the south aisle. In 1850 church was heavily destroyed by fire. Some of its wooden furnishings were seriously damaged then but most of it was quickly restored.
