The Wawel Royal Cathedral of St Stanislaus B. M. and St Wenceslaus M.

Here, everything is Poland, every stone and every little thing. Whoever enters it, becomes himself part of Poland , part of its construction. Here we add a measure to this body – and only now, within these walls, are we Poland ourselves.

Stanisław Wyspiański
Wyzwolenie 1902

We are all well aware that to enter this Cathedral can not be without emotion. More I say, you can not enter it without the internal tremor, without fear because it contains in it – as in almost no Cathedral of the world – the enormous size, which speaks to us in all our history, our entire past.

Kardynał Karol Wojtyła
8 marca 1964
