When a Pole says: St. Mary's Church, it is obvious that one means this particular national sanctuary in the heart of Cracow. Throughout centuries the treasures of art were gathered there; kings, artists, renowned citizens, nobility and simple country folk celebrated their joys and lamented over their sorrows in the Basilica. Recently restored, now it looks so magnificent like never before in the course of its long history, and the famous Gothic altar of Veit Stoss has recaptured its splendour and grandeur from the times of the Master from Nuremberg. The album "St. Mary's Basilica" contains numerous unique photographs of the church, its interior, innumerable monuments, national memorials and many close-ups we would never see but for the help of the master's lens. The whole is superbly supplemented by the text bringing us near the history of St. Mary's Basilica. It is written by Michal Rozek, a prominent historian of art and an expert on Cracow, the author of many publications dedicated to the Royal City.
