The Church of Weddings (2)

 

For over two hundred years, the Capuchin Church (on Loretańska Street - photo 2) has been considered a special place for getting married in Kraków. Supposedly, this is the place where the happiest marriages have their origin.

In Kraków, great attention was always paid to one's social background, education, family connections and achievements. This was also reflected in the choice of the church as a place of prayer or weddings. But the Capuchin Church  has become in this regard an example of true democracy. The desire to be happy was so common among the newly-weds that it guided them to the altar of the "happy church," regardless of their financial status or social origins.
