Church of St. Wojciech
Another very old building, built before the market square was marked out, is the small church of St.. Wojciech, standing on its southern edge. The origins of the temple date back to the 10th century, so it is one of the oldest churches in Krakow. They say, that there used to be a wooden pagan temple here, however, there is uncertainty as to its actual existence. Current appearance, deceptively reminiscent of a square chapel covered with a baroque dome, is the result of modifications from the 18th century. The church is worth visiting for at least two reasons. Firstly, has quite interesting, a less official interior and a specific atmosphere, additionally emphasized by the image of Christ on the rood beam, who has "real" hair. Secondly, in the basement of the temple, an exhibition entitled. "The history of the Krakow Market Square", presenting, among others. history of the church. You can also see wooden water pipes here–sewerage from the 15th-16th century. and a skeleton grave with a well-preserved skeleton of a 12th-century Cracovian.
The legend connects the fate of the church with St.. Wojciech. who was supposed to celebrate mass here before the last missionary trip to Prussia. When the news reached Krakow, that Wojciech was martyred, then Bolesław the Brave immortalized the name of his friend in the name of the temple.
