This Jezuit Church is dedicated to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. It was built in 1909 – 1921 to a design by Franciszek Maczynski. The church is one of the best examples of modern sacral architecture in Poland. It also contains some elements from Roman, Gothic and Baroque traditions.


Its tower is 68 meters high and is one of the highest in Krakow. Majestic sculptures over the entrance are work of Xawery Dunikowski – very talended artist of the early 20th century. In its interior there are frescoes based on inspirations from the times of early Roman Christianity and Byzantium.
