Krakow also features a Greek Orthodox church. It is the former Catholic Church of St. Norbert, built in the 1st half of the 17th century for the Norbertine nuns.
It became the property of the Greek Catholics in 1808, after the liquidation of the Norbertine Convent. The interior boasts a brick iconostasis designed by Tadeusz Stryjeński, icons designed according to the sketches by Jan Matejko, and the second iconostasis (in the side room) designed by Jerzy Nowosielski.
