the apostles twelve

Church of St. Peters and St. Pauls / Krakow, Poland
Located on Z. Grodska, the Church of Sts. Peter and Paul is a Baroque Jesuit church known best for the statues of the 12 disciples lining the fence at the front. The stone statues of the Apostles, looming larger than life-size, are replicas of the 18th century late Baroque originals. If you venture into the side courtyard, you can view the originals, now more protected from the wear and tear of the elements.
