Transcript

The Polish city of Krakow has practically grown up around St. Mary's Basilica. This red brick church was completed by the 14th century, but some additions were made later. The taller of the two towers, both topped by spires, is an impressive 262 feet tall. A trumpet call sounds hourly to remember an attack by the Mongols on Krakow. Veit Stoss, a famous sculptor, carved a stone crucifix into the church. He also did the massive wood-carved altarpiece for which St. Mary's is famous. St. Mary's Basilica is a piece of Krakow's history too beautiful to miss.
