Inspired by the beauty of old architecture.

The first Dominicans arrived in Kraków in 1222, brought here by the Bishop Iwo Odrowąż. The Dominican ideas were brought to Poland by his two nephews, Jacek (Hyacinth) and Czesław Odrowąż, who he sent with such a mission to the founder of the Order, Dominic de Guzmán. Czesław settled in Wrocław, while Hyacinth – later made a saint – initiated the activities of the Dominicans in Kraków. The Bishop donated to the Dominicans the Romanesque Church of the Holy Trinity, which was most probably the first parish church of Kraków before the city’s Great Charter in 1257. The construction of the new, brick church with three aisles of equal height began in the latter half of the 13th century and continued until the 1330s. After a fire in 1462, the nave was made higher, and crow-stepped parapets were added to the façades of the Church.
