Churches, churches and more churches.

There are so many churches to visit in Warsaw with all holding some important historical significance. It's on the way to the Old Town. I'm sure it won't disappoint.

Maybe one of the most beautiful churches that i have ever visited. It is worth going there, because this is where the Chopin heart is kept.

This is an old church that has been rebuilt many times, including after the heavy damage from Nazi shelling during WWII. The church is notable for being the final resting place of Frederic Chopin's heart

It's an amazing Church, very beautiful. They have a lot of gold there and one thing in special: the Chopin's heart. Chopin was concerned about be buried alive. So he asked to doctors to remove his heart to be sure that he was dead.

Church is rather nice, but nothing spectacular. However, because of the whole story with the heart of Chopin in it, it's a hard place to miss. Great location, easy to locate.

Located on the Nowy Swiat street, opposite the Copernicus monument this nice, but common Baroque Church is famous for the resting place of Chopin's heart. The famous composer died in Paris, but it was his will his heart to rest in heart of Poland.

This noble church on the Royal Way is more famous for Chopin's Heart that was sent here from Paris than the wonderful architecture. Don't overlook the rest.
