Basilica of St. Francis Assisi built in 1237 is Kraków's the most colourful church. It is well known for the eight stained-glass windows and the gorgeous Art Nouveau interiors created by young Cracovian Stanislaw Wyspiansky's. The colors and saturation make the interior of basilica similar to mosque.

There is a one of his famous works at the Basilica entrance named "God the Father in the Act of Creation" or just "The Creation" which shows God emerging from the cosmos in the act of creation.

Dating back to the 13th century, St. Francis' Basilica was the first brick building in the city and is well worth popping in.

PRECIOSA Y MUY COLORIDA
Merece la pena la visita por su gran colorido esta iglesia fue uno de los lugares favoritos de Karol Wojty?a, y en su recuerdo se conserva una placa en el banco que sol?a sentarse antes de ser Papa.

Aqu? se pueden ver lo que son los belenes t?picos de Cracovia, la verdad es que muy curiosos en forma de castillo, representando las escenas t?picas.
