The King founded this Baroque jewel of a church in the seventeenth century in gratitude to God for the recapture of Smolensk from the Russians.

One of the notable features are the fine cloisters which have memorials and plaques to writers, artists and those who perished in the last war.

Inside is exquisite. From the rear the view along the magnificent nave is to be savoured. Fine archways border on each side. A grand pulpit, highly ornate, is in the traditional position. The altar area is lustrous.

The highly embellished organ is stunning in its elevated position at the back. Oval stations of the cross are relatively plainer but effective. The curved ceiling with its lunnettes is grand.

I love this church. If I lived in Warsaw I would go here. Great feeling. In the courtyard there are lots of memorial plaques for loved ones killed during the Nazi Occupation. Makes it so real! Victims who lost their lives in so many different places. One plaque has a father and son murdered in Warsaw outside Gestapo headquarters. The mother was taken to the same prison and then sent to Ravensbruck. The daughter was a nurse killed during the Warsaw Uprising.
