St. Mary's Basilica (Kościól Mariacki) Tours and Activities

star-5
1,507 Reviews

The lop-sided towers of the majestic Saint Mary’s Basilica dominate the northeast corner of Krakow’s lively central square, the Rynek Główny. A church has graced this spot since medieval times, but this incarnation was built of red-brick in Gothic style and consecrated in 1320 after the original was destroyed by invading Tartars in the 13th century. The northern tower was raised to 263 feet (80 meters) and became the city’s watchtower.

The interior is handsomely decorated with a star-spangled blue ceiling, heavy Gothic ornamentation and stained-glass windows that shaft sunlight into patterns in the floor. The showpiece is the magnificent carved altar, constructed with wood by the German craftsman Veit Stoss in 1489; it took him 12 long years to finish his creation, which measures 47 feet (13 meters) across and is carved with 200 biblical figures. The altar is opened daily at 11:50 a.m. to reveal gilded scenes from the life of the Virgin Mary.

St Mary’s Basilica is most famous for the much-loved bugle call that rings out across the city on the hour, every hour, played by a trumpeter standing at the top of the structure’s taller, northern tower.

City Sightseeing in Krakow by Electric Car

City Sightseeing in Krakow by Electric Car

You have probably ridden on a big bus called “double-decker” in any European capital at least once. Kraków, due to its historical specificity, narrow streets and a closed zone for public transport will not offer them. However, we have a real pleasure to offer you something similar, but much more comfortable and easier. Sightseeing on board of an eco-friendly, electric vehicle equipped with an audio system is a convenient and fast way of learning about Kraków's history and its monuments. A quiet, comfortable small car is permitted to go through the Old Town and drive its small and narrow streets. You can enjoy sitting in a comfortable car and adore this magnificent medieval city. During the tour, visitors have the unique opportunity to see the most beautiful places in the Old Town, Kazimierz – the old Jewish district, where you can explore traces of the Holocaust by going through the Kraków ghetto to the famous Oskar Schindler's Factory.
