This was my favourite church to visit in Warsaw. It is also to the home of Chopin's heart which adds to the interest. Nice chapel to Pope Paul when you first enter.

We visit this church to see Chopin’s thumb and had an incredible luck as there was a concert about to start with Chopin virtuosic being performed by local artist. The church is beautiful as well but the concert made the night perfect.

Apart from the Chopin's Heart it is worth to step in to the left side of the church to see the St Juda shrine - there is great collections of small metal plates that commemorise miracles that took place after prayer in this sanctuary.
