The inside is as nice as any church you might visit but it is the statue in front that is really noticeable. Walking in the street and suddenly seeing that statue takes you out of your thoughts.

The sculpture of Jesus Chist in front of this church became almost th symbol of Warsaw. It was screened in many-many films. Chopin's heart is saved here. Very central lokation, you will never miss this church

I've known Chopin since I was a little girl, thanks to my Granny. I was thrilled beyond beiief to get to his museum in Warsaw but, more importantly, to get to Holy Cross and his "heart!" Holy Cross is massive and very ornate with much to observe at every step! I certainly wish to return one day!

I had Chopin played at my wedding. So, I wanted to visit the church to see the location of Chopin's heart. Imagine the fun I had when a wedding occurred after I arrived. Not only did they play Vivaldi's Spring, but Chopin, too. Beautiful wedding. There is a bright gold altar on the left as you enter the church ...... More

One of the most famous churches in Poland, this old baroque building was almost totally destroy by the Nazis, first with an airstrike and later with a inner demolition. Now a days, holds in a urn the heart of one of the prodigious sons of Poland, Frederic Chopin. Its something interesting to see and its in your way to Castle... More

The church itself is beautiful. It is true that most of the old buildings in the old town is beautiful, but once you step inside the church, it looks much different from outside. However, standing in front of the place where the heart of Chopin is buried, you feel the great artist's strong desire to come back to his home... More
