Culture in Kraków

If you believe the legends, Poland’s second city was founded on the defeat of a dragon, and a mythical atmosphere does indeed permeate its attractive streets and squares. Use this guide to get to grips with its culture.

SIGHTS

Basilica of St Francis

(franciszkanska.pl; Plac Wszystkich Świętych 5)

Duck into the dark basilica on a sunny day to admire the artistry of Stanisław Wyspiański, who designed the fantastic Art Nouveau stained-glass windows. The multicoloured deity in the chancel above the organ loft is a masterpiece. From the transept you can also enter the Gothic cloister of the Franciscan monastery to admire fragments of 15th-century frescoes.
