The St. Joseph’s Church in Krakow-Podgórze, an outstanding masterpiece of Neo-Gothic sacred architecture in Poland, was built in the years 1905-1909.
Its architect is Jan Sas Zubrzycki, Professor at the Lviv Polytechnic National University. The façade, richly decorated with sculptures, is situated between the steeples, one of which has a helm referring to the steeple of the St. Mary’s Basilica. An interesting fact is that the presbytery is located in place of a former quarry, its cellars have been carved out of the limestone rocks.
