Pavilon Wyspiański 2000 was erected in 2007 to memorise 100 anniversary of the death of Stanisław Wyspiański. According to the architect Krzysztof Ingarden the building had to expose three stained glass windows created for the Wawel Cathedral but never before made out of glass. The building is created made of glass and only covered by long and narrow bricks decorated with chestnut tree lives. The bricks cover the light to expose the glasses in the proper way.
The stain glasses present Saint Stanislaw, the king Casimir the Great and the duque Henry the Pious. The then cardinal of Krakow, Jan Puzyna blocked fixing the glasses to the Cathedral windows, today the windows are transparent (with exception of transept and one in the nave). If Stanisław Wyspiański make the task, next to existing ones would be: 1) Mitical duque Piast, 2) Saint Hedvig, queen of Poland, 3) Władysław Jagiełło, first king of Jagiellonian dynasty, 4) Sigismund the Old and Sigismund August, to last kings of Jagiellonian dynasty, 5) Saint Kunegunda, 6) Zawisza Czarny - a knife who fight in the battle of Grunwald, 7) Wernyhora - legendary prophet who foreseen future of Poland and Ukraine.
