We have a family there so visit often but it is a museum. Full of sculpture and important Polish personalities. Visiting when it is full of candles on All Souls’ Day is magical. If you like cemeteries, and I do, well worth a visit.
I think this church is especially famous for keeping the heart of music composer Frédéric Chopin. The urn with his heart is immured up in one of the columns and a commemorative plaque is placed on it.
I found interesting the information that during the Chopin International Piano Competition on 17 October (the day of Frédéric Chopin's death) a solemn mass is celebrated in this church, during which Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Requiem is performed in accordance with the wishes of the composer.
Small, but important reminder of Warsaw’s Jewish History. It is the only pre-WWII synagogue still standing. The interior is simple, but beautiful example of the time period. The synagogue is still in use by the Jewish Community. Full visit is about 20 minutes.
The Carmelite Church is also a Roman Catholic church. It has a notable neoclassical-style facade, created in the 18th century.
The church is known for its twin belfries shaped like censers. However, the church is most notable for being the site of Chopin's first employment as he was invited to perform a recital on the church's organ.
While walking around Warsaw, we came upon the Holy Trinity Evangelical Church of the Augsburg Confession. This is a beautiful church and persons interesting in architecture and religion would likely enjoy it.
This, relatively small, church was built by order of queen mary by the Dutch architect Tylman von Gameren, also known as Gamerski. It is baroque in style and is located next to the market square of the New Town.
The Rev. David Brown is the chaplain and provides a wonderful communion service every Sunday morning at 10:30. All services are in English and provide a place of worship for all Anglican denominations.
Praga has many interesting sights, such as this courtyard kapliczka which we encountered during a Praga Sensory Walking Tour. Lovely and well maintained kapliczka. Good for a moment of contemplation. Photogenic.
