Corpus Christi Church in Krakow is a fine Gothic church dating from the mid-1300s.

The impressive brick church has a rich interior with several side chapels. Notable features include a high altar from 1634, the superb choir stalls of 1629, and an interesting mid-18th-century pulpit shaped like a boat.

An upper chapel contains a Madonna by Lucas Cranach (c.1520). The adjacent monastery dates from 1405.
