Best seen from near the Kopernicus monument, where there is a glass cube showing the painting that helped in the reconstruction of this church. Don't miss the statue in front up the steps.

This is a lovely church, with a very distinct Polish look.
While the church looks lovely during the day, it absolutely looks stunning at night, when it is dramatically lit.
Worth a visit while taking a walk in the Royal route.

Beautiful baroque style church in the very centre of Warsaw. The burial site of Fryderyk Chopin's heart. Worth visiting - especially for all those who love Chopin's music.

I went to see the memorial that contains the heart of Fryderyk Chopin and I was not disappointed. Who came up with that concept?

We took a guided tour of Old Town in Warsaw and our guide told us the story about how Chopin wanted his heart to be in Warsaw after he passed away. So his sister carried it back from Paris in a brandy bottle.

Chopin's heart now rests in this church.
