about St. Mary's Basilica
The construction of St. Mary’s Basilica was started in late 13th century on the foundations of a former Romanesque church.(...) Over the centuries, the church underwent numerous reconstructions of both its exterior and interior.(...)
The years 1477–1489 brought the main altar to the temple. It was sculpted [in wood] by Veit Stoss and is considered a late Gothic masterpiece. It is composed of the centre part with sculptures, a pair of opening internal wings, and a pair of fixed external wings.
The light comes inside through the high stained glass windows. Only three windows have been preserved from the original medieval stained glass. The rest is from the 19th century and was created by individuals such as Stanisław Wyspiański and Józef Mehoffer.
