Church of the Holy Cross (Kosciol Swietego Krzyza)

Interesting
Casting its slender red-brick silhouette against the verdant backdrop of Planty Park, this Gothic church is one of the most picturesque of Krakow. Parish church of the members of the order of the Holy Ghost of Saxia, its current guise dates mostly from the 14C and 15C. The nave, with its almost square layout, has a Gothic palm vault resting on a single central pillar with an arborescent capital. The lateral walls are decorated with a wealth of murals.
