The mannerist architecture and sculpture in Poland include two major traditions - Polish/Italian and Dutch/Flemish, that dominated in northern Poland. The Silesian mannerism of south-western Poland was largely influenced by Bohemian and German mannerism, while the Pomeranian mannerism of north-western Poland was influenced by Gothic tradition and Northern German mannerism. The Jews in Poland adapted patterns of Italian and Polish mannerism to their own tradition. The mannerist complex of Kalwaria Zebrzydowska and mannerist City of Zamość are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

The Polish mannerism, though largely dominated by Italian architects and sculptors, has its unique characteristics which differentiate it from its Italian equivalent (attics, decorational motives, construction and shape of buildings, Dutch, Bohemian and German influences). Among notable architects and sculptors of Polish/Italian mannerism wer Santi Gucci, Jan Michałowicz of Urzędów, Giovanni Maria Padovano, Giovanni Battista di Quadro, Jan Frankiewicz, Galleazzo Appiani, Jan Jaroszewicz, Bernardo Morando, Kasper Fodyga, Krzysztof Bonadura, Antoneo de Galia and many others.
