The Corpus Christi Basilica (Polish: Bazylika Bożego Ciała), located in the Kazimierz district of Kraków, Poland is a Gothic church founded by King Casimir III the Great in 1335.
The basilica was erected in stages beginning in 1340 until about the mid-15th century. It was intended as a monastery church, which explains the large plot of land on which it stands, and the presence of a monastic cemetery next to it. In 1404 King Władysław II Jagiełło gave it to the Canons Regular of the Lateran, a congregation which he had brought in from Kłodzko.

Truly gorgeous church the interior is breathtaking! My friend and I tried to go in and we were asked to cover up our shoulders or leave. A polite sign outside would of helped with the confusion. Just went to a local shop and bought a cheap scarf to cover our shoulders. Well worth a visit although I would have a shawl handy!

One of the most beautiful church in Krakow. Definitely worth visiting while walking in Kazimierz.

I can't speak Polish, forgive me please. I came during a ceremony - I believe it was a baptism but I can't be certain due to language barrier. Everyone was very respectful and quiet, and the Basilica itself is beautiful inside. It smells of lovely incense, it is very well-kept, and has an aura of power about it. Very beautiful.

Beautiful interior. I chanced upon this place during an evening mass. The people were polite and allowed me to observe.
