A Jesuit Church in Krakow

Church of the Holiest Heart of Jesus, Krakow, Poland  © Doug Hickok

This Jesuit church and monastery complex was nearly completed when World War I broke out. It was finally finished after the fighting in 1921, not long after the rebirth of the Polish Republic. These two towers display neo-Romanesque and neo-Gothic styles, as well as noticeable coatings of neo-patina from exposure to the elements. We walked past this church several times during our excursions into the historic center of Krakow. Until then, I'd never seen a Jesuit monastery.
