Field Cathedral of the Polish Army, Warsaw

Field Cathedral of the Polish Army, Warsaw

Field Cathedral of the Polish Army is one of the most popular Cathedrals in Poland. This garrison church is where most of the military religious celebrations are held. The church today is visited by locals and tourists from around the world.

This church is located opposite Krasinski square close to the old town. There is a chapel dedicated to the Katyn massacre victims. Field Cathedral of the Polish Army was built for the Piarist friars between seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

In 1915, after the war, Russians left Warsaw. This church functioned as a depot for the German army and was used by them for a few years. It was restored to its former glory only after 1918 when Poland gained independence between 1923 and 1927.

Oskar Sosnowski reconstructed the Field Cathedral of the Polish Army. His designs were based on drawings of the 17th century. The church was again destroyed during the Warsaw Uprising by the Luftwaffe in the year 1944. It was only between 1946 and 1960 that it was rebuilt and restored to its present structure by a team of architects headed by Leon Marek Suzin. This church is definitely a must-visit on your trip to Warsaw.
