Summary/Abstract: The author attempts to describe scientifically the most important and representative calvaries located in Poland. Apart from the well-known, seventeenth-century places such as Kalwaria Zebrzydowska, Pakoska, Wejherowska, Pacławska, Krzeszowska, Wambierzycka or the eighteenth-century ones such as Kalwaria Annogórska, he also writes about less known architectural and landscape objects from the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century and describes the modern ones from the end of the 20th and 21st centuries.
