Church defaced with hateful graffiti in Krakow

On June 19, it was reported that the Church of St. Wojciech in Krakow was defaced with vulgar graffiti expressing hatred toward the Catholic Church, the Vatican, and accusing the clergy of pedophilia.


The vandals damaged the church’s facade, a site historically linked to St. Wojciech, who is believed to have preached there. Initially, a wooden church was built on this site.

Current research indicates that under the structure on the Main Market Square are elements of a masonry building from the turn of the 10th and 11th centuries. The church as we know it today dates from a later period, around the turn of the 11th and 12th centuries.

In subsequent years, the church underwent Baroque modernization, and in the 18th century, a sacristy and chapel were added.
