Church of the Holiest Saviour, Poland

From series “The Most Elegant Buildings of Baroque Architecture”
Year: 1901.

Church of the Holiest Saviour is a Roman Catholic parish church in Warsaw, Poland. It has begun to build in 1901 but the dedication service was made only within 26 years. The church is a good example of the unique combination of two bright styles – the Baroque and the Renaissance. It is located on the Saviour Square, that until the 20th century wasn’t attractive for tourists and locals. This area was fully built with houses to the second half of the 19th century because the population of Warsaw has drastically increased. As the population in this area became bigger, it was decided to build there a church.

The main element of the architect monuments is two high slim towers with traditional Latin crosses. During the Second World War, the church was fully destroyed and was rebuilt only within 8 years. Now we see the church as it was a century ago. Its façade is decorated with the sculptures of Saint Paul and Peter.

The inside decoration is also quite rich. There were saved the stained-glass windows, wooden elements and a great wall painting. Today the church is situated in a picturesque historic district. It is surrounded by buildings of the second half of the 19th century. It is easy to see the high towers form many streets. That’s why it is quite hard to lose in this area for tourists who came to Warsaw for the first time. Next - Dolmabahce Palace
