Holy Cross Church

Warsaw, Poland
4.8 / 64
The church of the XVI century, which also could not escape the fate of being destroyed during the Second World War. In the middle of the 19th century, a statue of the cross carrying Jesus stood in front of the temple. The church is notable for the fact that in one of its walls there is an urn with the ashes of Frederic Chopin. In the XX century, the temple was completely rebuilt, but work on the external and internal decoration continued into the 21st century.

A beautiful building with rich culture and style. The art and quality of the church were incredibly and it was stunning to visit. Free to enter, donations were appreciated and a small donation requested if lighting a candle

Breathtaking church that's a must see. Magnificent altars and decoration. Chopin's heart is inside one of the pillars. It's free entry and is just outside of old town.

I'm not religious in the slightest but these buildings are always spectacular inside and this one definitely doesn't disappoint!
Nice church, and Chopin’s heart is here too.

As there was a mass going on at the time I didn't want to walked all over the church and disrupt the solemnity. But I saw the column where Chopins heart is interred, and said a few prayers in a back pew.

It’s a large Catholic church, beautiful inside and outside. It was founded in 1679, later destroyed in WWII and reconstructed in 1950s. In one of the columns of this church Frederic Chopin’s heart is buried.

Chopin's heart rests according to his wish to be brought back to Poland. The story says that his wife brought it after his death in a jar of vodka under her dress all the way from Paris.

A lovely church on the main street in Warsaw. A special church as this is where Frederick Chopin's heart is. It is not far from a room that the Chopin's rented when they lived in Warsaw.
Striking architecture, worth visiting just to stand next to the pillar that contains Chopin's heart.

A really beautiful church. But if you come here as a tourist you really should respect the fact that people are there to do their Christian thing and pray or what ever Christian people do.

It was an amazing experience to be able to view the interior. Don't let the huge number of visitors stop you from entering the Church. It is worth it.
