Church of St Catherine information
One of the most monumental churches in the city, and possibly the one that has best retained its original Gothic shape, St Catherine’s was founded in 1363 and completed 35 years later, though its planned towers have never been built. The church was once on the corner of Kazimierz’s market square but the area was built up in the 19th century. The lofty and spacious whitewashed interior boasts the imposing, richly gilded Baroque high altar from 1634 and some very flamboyant choir stalls.
