About St. Mary's Basilica

Two characteristic towers of St. Mary's Basilica rear above the Market Square skyline and can be seen from a very long distance. One can risk saying that this is the most known and recognizable church in Krakow - it has been a symbol of Market Square since the 13th century!

The magnificent altar of Veit Stoss is well worth your precious time in Krakow.

Interesting facts

Two towers of St. Mary's Church

Do you know the legend? The two brothers were building towers of St. Mary's Basilica. At one point, the one of the elder began to tower over the younger broher's one. His jealousy led him to a terrible crime - he killed his older brother so that he could enjoy the glory after building the towers. Now his tower was higher, and the tower of the murdered brother was covered with a dome.
When the construction was over, his guilty conscience would not give him any peace. He climbed up to his higher tower, confessed his sin holding a knife to which he committed fratricide and then he threw himself out of the tower.

Another legend related to the legend about St. Mary's Towers is the fact that supposedly the knife, which the jealous brother used to commit a crime, is now hanging in the Cloth Hall.
