All Saints Church - The largest Church in Warsaw city of Poland (Europe)



While walking around Warsaw city, we came across this beautiful All Saints Church and to be honest, it was not planned for us to visit the place but when we encountered the place we were curious to know more about it and explore it. Although Warsaw has lot of beautiful architectural pieces but somehow this church got special attention in our unplanned itinerary. When we tried to know more about the place, we got to that the church has specific importance when we talk about various churches in Europe.     Probably I would not list this place as one of the must visit places in Warsaw City of Poland, but if you are roaming around Old Town and have time, it's worth a visit.     All Saints Church is the largest church in Warsaw. The basic layout is a cross. The church has three aisles, a dome, the choir and main altar, the side chapel of Our Lady of Częstochowa, a porch and two tall bell towers, all built in the neoclassical style. These details and description is checked from Wikipedia as it was not that easy for me to define the church as an architecture and that was important it being largest church in capital city of Poland in Europe.      The All Saints Church has paintings by the 17th century artist M. L. Willman, which is a representative of Silesian baroque. There is a restored marble figure of Jesus. The pulpit of wrought iron is based is a beautiful design. This one was put in the honour of Pope John Paul II, which is exactly in front of the church. And was donated by the Italian artist Giorgio Galletti.    The more I know about the historical bits of such architectures, I wonder how society has evolved through various contributions by different people, dynasties, generations and kind of social groups. All this has made it beautiful for us to visit these places again and again to explore well, to get inspired. At the end, it's all about how much we want to know about such places and get inspired to do something which is worth remembering for future generations.     Am I asking a big question? Just think and introspect...

Throughout Warsaw town, you can witness and hear many tributes to Pope John Paul II. It is easily recognizable because of the statue of the Pope John Paul II on the steps. People leave flowers and candles in honor of him. Warsaw’s largest church can have 3000+ people at any point of time.

If you liked this post and found it helpful, I would request you to follow these things when traveling -


  1. Manage your waste well and don’t litter
  2. Use dustbins. Tell us if you went to a place and found it hard to locate a dustbin.
  3. Avoid bottle waters in hills. Usually you get clean water in hills and water bottles create lot of mess in our ecosystem.
  4. Say big no to plastic and avoid those unhealthy snacks packed in plastic bags. Rather buy fruits.
  5. Don't play loud blaring music in forests of jungle camps. You are a guest in that ecosystem and disturbing the locals (humans and animals) is not polite.
