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

This is beautiful and nicely restored church. Chopin's heart rests here. Therefore it is well worth seeing. However, there are are a lot of people praying there, so it is important to be quiet and discrete...

Like most of Warsaw this church was reconstructed after the war. It is beautiful. You cannot miss the memorial to Chopin where his heart is buried. The evening we visited there was a memorial service for the 4500 Polish soldiers killed by Russians in the Katyn Massacre in 1940. The church was filled with soldiers in dress uniform; it was...

One of the many sights you pass along The Royal Route or Krakowskie Przedmiescie. It is open 10-4pm and most people visit because Chopin's heart is enshrined in an urn behind one of the church pillars. There are the remains of other notable Poles here also. It is one of the finest baroque churches in Warsaw. It's cornerstone was laid... More

Is located at the main road with the shops, cafe and restaurants at the opposite side of the Copernicus Monument. We visited the church on the way to the old town. Very simple and peaceful, not very beautiful and i haven't seen the heart of Chopin. The only thing that is very attractive in front of the church, is Jesus... More
