This church is located close by my favourite restaurant Zapieciek in on Old town. Just around the corner from castle square. It's a but sandwiched between many buildings and if not for its unusual shape, it would have been very easy to have been overlooked.

The first thing you notice is the impressive doors. Beautiful alter. It is an active church with people inside. It was nice to sit and pray.

Built between 1609 & 1629, I imagine almost all visitors to Warsaw will visit this fine church as it stands next door to Warsaw Cathedral. Like so many other buildings in the city, this church was almost completely destroyed in 1944 by the German invaders...More

This church is in the old town and next to the cathedral. although a nice church there are far better churches to visit in terms of splendour.

You will know this church by the front doors, an impressive piece of modern art. The doors are the work of Polish artist Igor Mitoraj. I have seen more of his massive and sometimes disturbing work in Krakow and London. Located adjacent to the cathedral,...More

The Sanctuary of our lady of graces is a place you can enter if you pass by but it is certainly not a must see.

What struck me most about this church were the numerous rosary beads hanging on the walls circling the main altar. When I returned home, I tried researching why they were there but so far have not been able to find the answer. Compared to other...More

If you plan to visit the beautiful St John's Archcathedral there is a good chance that you will probably not even pay a visit to this church even though it is a beautiful church and located adjacent to the cathedral,it's not as famous nor is...More

With this being right next to the more famous cathedral many people pass it by and don't realise that it is there. Go in, it's a hidden gem! The artwork on the doors alone is worth a look. In contrast to it's neighbour it is...More

After admiring the grand two tone facade we saw the remarkable three sculptures on the door. A novel feature at an entrance. Inside we were immediately captivated by the marvellous suspended semi-ellipsoid of rosary beads primarily but also little holy plaques. An unusual but most...More
