Went inside this church, it's quite small, austere and bland inside. There's not a great amount to see really.

Most of it was destroyed during the Warsaw uprising and then it was blown up by the Nazis, but parts of it remain including the altar in the south wing of the transcript. It's worth a visit with a historical... More

Terrible place and if you really want to see where Chopin's heart lies then pay only a 2 minute visit. Priests and their followers are very radical and I don't know why there are many couples who want to marry there.

The recesses in the church were all GOLD. I have never seen so much! It was a very pretty old church and apparently Chopin's heart used to be housed in one of the columns inside

There are so many churches to visit in Warsaw with all holding some important historical significance. It's on the way to the Old Town. I'm sure it won't disappoint.

Maybe one of the most beautiful churches that i have ever visited. It is worth going there, because this is where the Chopin heart is kept.

This is an old church that has been rebuilt many times, including after the heavy damage from Nazi shelling during WWII. The church is notable for being the final resting place of Frederic Chopin's heart

It's an amazing Church, very beautiful. They have a lot of gold there and one thing in special: the Chopin's heart. Chopin was concerned about be buried alive. So he asked to doctors to remove his heart to be sure that he was dead.

Church is rather nice, but nothing spectacular. However, because of the whole story with the heart of Chopin in it, it's a hard place to miss. Great location, easy to locate.
