Restoration of damage caused by acid rain & air pollution in general to structural masonry of the Church of St Peter & St Paul, Cracow, Poland. The church was built in the baroque style in the early 17th century. Eroded stone is treated with a mixture of sand & cement with a clear acrylic emulsion for exterior protection. In 1988, some statuary on the exterior of the building was replaced with replicas. Restoration work performed in the 1950's is currently (1990) requiring more attention. Cracow contains a wealth of historic buildings & is deemed a World Heritage Site. Whilst 80 buildings have been restored to date, some 1700 need urgent attention.
