The Altarpiece by Veit Stoss in Kraków, also St. Mary's Altar, is among the largest Gothic altarpiece in Europe and a national treasure of Poland. It is located behind the High altar of St. Mary's Basilica in Kraków. The altarpiece was carved between 1477 and 1489 by the German sculptor Veit Stoss who lived and worked in the city for over 20 years.

Unfortunately it was under renovation when we visited in March 2019 and we were not able to see this great masterpiece.
