The set of stained glass windows at the Wyspianski Pavillion features martyred Polish heroes St. Stanislaw (on the left) and Henryk Pobozny (on the right) are shown Christ-like at the moment of their deaths, while Kazimierz the Great's bare skull bears the royal crown between them.

A triptych of windows for Wawel Cathedral was commissioned to design to Stanislaw Wyspianski, one of creators of the St. Francis Basilica. However, depictions of St. Stanislaw, Kazimierz the Great and Henryk Pobozny were considered too grotesque and debatable, and the project was on hold until director Andrzej Wajda revived this idea.

The work was produced by Piotr Ostrowski of the Stained Glass Museum using Wyspianski's designs. And the building designed by Krzystof Ingarden was build in 2007 specifically for the installation of the triptych.

The building is curious for its facade of rotating brick panels. And of course for the fact that building is not suitable for displaying stained glass works. It is too narrow and natural light is not able to pass through stained glass. As a result, windows are illuminated from inside and feature great view at the hours of darkness.

At the same building you will also find the tourist information point (available 9:00 - 20:30).
