The article deals with a sumptuous mausoleum in the Italian all'antica style - the Sigismund Chapel (1515-1533) - initiated by King Sigismund I (1467- 1548), who was educated within the circle of Cracow humanists (e.g. Filippo Buonaccorsi, called Callimacho Esperiente). It offers information on the process of raising and decorating the edifice adjacent to the Cracow's Cathedral, description of external and internal architectural and decorative elements and the analysis of stylistic forms and iconographic programs of the sculptural decor.
