Located in the upper part of the plac Matejki, Saint Florian may be a basilica, but it is also pretty dull (by Krakow standards, at least). Dating back to the 12th or 13th century and consecrated by the bishop of Cracow and historian Wincenty Kadlubek, the church would have been built at the place where the oxen carry the relics of St. Florian's - a 3rd century Christian martyr who came to be regarded as the patron saint of Poland, stopped and refused to budge.
The Collegiate Church of St. Florian
(Polish: Kosciol sw. Floriana w Krakowie
) is a historic church in Krakow, Poland. It stands at the northern end of Matejko Square and the former centre of the mediaeval city of Kleparz, now a district of Krakow. The edifice marks the beginning of the Royal Road.
