Beautiful Church that houses the heart of Chopin! It is so rich in its decoration and the Holy Cross at the entrance is original, survived the bombings.

This beautiful old church is well worth the visit. Considering the destruction of Warsaw in WW2 it is remarkable all the work that went into the reconstruction.

Could skip this church but instead many visit due to oft mentioned Chopin heart. Altar is nice. Very warm inside. Lots of construction at front entrance

The church itself is average, in that yes, it's pretty, but nothing special. However, what gives it an edge is the fact that Chopin's heart is buried there, so it makes it special.

Sorry I don't know, I suggest you contact the Church direct or check their website for Mass times.
