The Corpus Christi is one of the city's largest and finest churches.

The impressive brick church has a rich interior with several side chapels. Notable features include a high altar from 1634, the superb choir stalls of 1629, and an interesting mid-18th-century pulpit shaped like a boat.

Whether sitting in its ornate choir-stalls or wandering about the draughty aisles, it is here that you can feel the spirits of those that have gone before us more powerfully than in any other church in Cracow. It is an enchanting, mystical place.

Legend of creation

According to legend, a robber who had stolen a precious relic from another church repented on this spot, abandoning the reliquary. The priests in pursuit saw a strange light emanating from the ground and discovering their sacred prize, founded a church here in recognition of the miracle.

Beautiful gro?e Church located in the historic district of Krakow.
The Church is convinced mainly by the fact that it is not overflowing annahernd as other churches in Krakow.
Well worth a visit.

Schone gro?e Kirche mitten im historischen Viertel von Krakau.
Die Kirche uberzeugt vor allem dadurch das sie nicht annahernd so uberlaufen ist wie andere Kirchen in Krakau.
Ein Besuch lohnt sich.

The magnificent Church , she put a spell on me ,the unique atmosphere inside .When I'm in Krakow and not only ,constantly visited Catholic churches ....so much stunning beauty that it is always necessary to think about all the builders of these remarkable structures , which, thank God, are our feelings, looking at these miracles.

A really worth visiting place. Very old and not so crowded as others in the town center. Entrance is free of charge. Impressive mix of gothic and baroque styles. See my pics attached

Simply astonishing. You have to be there to believe it. 
I'd give it the last star if you were allowed to take pictures inside, and the entry rules weren't so constricted.
