Short description

T he St. Anne´s Church is often regarded as the cathedral of Warsaw, and its imposing neoclassical facade and rich baroque interior certainly contribute to that distinction. One cannot help but be captivated by the church’s grandeur. Inside, a true marvel awaits: the magnificent organ, an additional reason to explore the interior of this sacred space. We highly recommend ascending to the observation terrace on the bell tower that belongs to the church. The panoramic views from there are truly breathtaking.

The history of the St. Anne´s Church dates back to the second half of the 15th century when a stone church was first erected on this site. The Gothic elements can still be observed on the southern side walls. The bell tower was added in the second half of the 16th century. The classical front facade, designed by Piotr Aigner, was adapted to the new architectural style between 1778 and 1788. During World War II, the church suffered significant damage, especially to the roof. Reconstruction was completed in 1962.

The interior of the church is lavishly adorned, reflecting the splendor of the Counter-Reformation in the 17th century. The wall paintings are truly captivating, drawing the attention of visitors. Among all the churches along the Royal Route, the St. Anne´s Church is undoubtedly one of the most remarkable and worth visiting.
