Church of St. Francis

Even if you are going through Europe and have had your fill of European churches, because I know I have, St. Francis is a breath of fresh air.  Its vibrantly colored walls cannot be done justice by my camera, and so I invite you to go see it for yourself.  And if you are a Pope John Paull II fan, then it is a must go….

Rick Steves writes of the church, “This beautiful Gothic church, which was Pope John Paul II’s homechurch while he was archbishop of Krakow, features some of Poland’s best Art Nouveau in situ (in the setting for which it was inteded)…it was redecorated by the two leading members of the Mloda Polska (Young Poland) movement…”

The official address is pl. Wszystkich Świętych 5, or just off the planty down Franciszkańska Street.
