The St. Florian’s Cathedral in Warsaw is situated in the district of Praga-North. The author of the church considered this project to be his life’s work.

Short description

The St. Florian’s Cathedral in the Praga district of Warsaw was constructed in the neo-Gothic style between 1888 and 1901. The height of the two towers is 75 meters. The church can accommodate up to 10 thousand worshipers. The author of this monumental project was Jozef Pius Dziekonski.

T he church was intended to serve as a counterpart to the Newski Church of the Russian Orthodox community in the neighborhood. Additionally, during the second half of the 19th century, the population grew rapidly, necessitating a new place of worship. Until then, Catholics had to cross to the other side of the river to participate in ceremonies and masses.

The church was blown up in 1944. Its reconstruction was only completed in 1970.

In 1992, the Warsaw-Praga Diocese was established, and the church became the seat of the bishop and a cathedral.

In 1997, John Paul II elevated the cathedral to the status of a minor basilica.
