Located just across from Castle Square, the facade of St. Anne's Church (Kosciol Swietej Anny) makes it look like a great neo-classical government building. This 18th-century facade reflects the church's function as the parish of the city's academic community.

  • This church is located adjacent to Castle Square. This amazing church can be overlooked because Castle Square is stealing all the attention. Also, this church looks very different from the outside...  more »
  • The church itself is fairly standard. It is a nice church in a city of nice churches. However, one of the side chapels holds a cross that is quite controversial in recent times and anyone interested.....  more »
  • I was there at night so there was a special ambiance both inside and outside. Gorgeous structure and altars inside. Spend some time strolling, observing the many crypts. One can only imagine the...  more »

  • Beautiful catholic church in the heart of Warsaw. Once inside the church you will find the a Royal Chapel, decorated with Wall paintings, if you go further to the altar place. There will be the directions to 4 parts of the world on the ceiling: Europe, Asia, America & Oceania. The main part of the church has richly decorated walls too. The church has accessible way and spacious place inside. I visited it when it was a hot summer day, so the church became a shelter for me to cool down too. The organ was playing and there were not so many people, but one man was constantly inciting people not to stay in the main part, but to have a look at the Royal Chapel too.
  • Beautiful church in Warsaw. The interior is perhaps the most interesting one in the city. the organ is stunningly decorated. The exterior is not quite as interesting as others in the area, though. This is worth a visit if you’re in the area.
  • Very typical Catholic Church. The pale yellow colour made it more typical. The difference is its tower which gives spectacular view of Warsaw old city from one end. The entry to the tower costs 6zl. The location of the church is very strategic, exactly at the entrance of the old city, adjacent to the Royal Castle. It also gives a good view of the Polish National Stadium.
  • The best place in the Center for a light sandwich and drinks. Location is perfect. You are lucky if you get a table outside. Veg Sandwich was really good.
  • Nice church. Beautiful inside so you must go in.
