  • The church itself is fairly standard. It is a nice church in a city of nice churches. However, one of the side chapels holds a cross that is quite controversial in recent times and anyone interested.....  more »

  • Beautiful catholic church in the heart of Warsaw. Once inside the church you will find the a Royal Chapel, decorated with Wall paintings, if you go further to the altar place. There will be the directions to 4 parts of the world on the ceiling: Europe, Asia, America & Oceania. The main part of the church has richly decorated walls too. The church has accessible way and spacious place inside. I visited it when it was a hot summer day, so the church became a shelter for me to cool down too. The organ was playing and there were not so many people, but one man was constantly inciting people not to stay in the main part, but to have a look at the Royal Chapel too.
  • Beautiful church in Warsaw. The interior is perhaps the most interesting one in the city. the organ is stunningly decorated. The exterior is not quite as interesting as others in the area, though. This is worth a visit if you’re in the area.
