St. Casimir's Church

  Rynek Nowego Miasta 2 ,   City Centre          (+48) 22 831 49 62     24 Jul 2018

Founded by Mary Sobieski, wife of King Jan III Sobieski, to commemorate her husband's victory over the Turkish army at the Gates of Vienna. The baroque-style church was designed by Tylman van Gameren and was completed in 1692. In 1944 it served as a Polish field hospital, and received a direct hit from a German bomb, killing more than 1,000 civilians, priests, nuns and soldiers who were inside. Today it has been fully restored and has a charred wooden cross as tribute to those who died. Please note that the church specially requests solemnity and quiet while visiting.
