What's so special about St. John's Archcathedral in Warsaw Old Town, Poland



While walking around the Old Town of Warsaw, the capital city of Poland, we came across this beautiful church which is just next to the Royal Palace in the city.  St. John's Archcathedral is one of Poland's national pantheons and stands immediately adjacent to Warsaw's Jesuit church. Along with the city, the church has been listed by UNESCO as of cultural significance. This Photo Journey shares a few photographs of the exteriors of the church and it's surroundings. We missed going inside as some ceremony was happening at that point of time and we didn't come back to this place during our visit to Warsaw.

Above photograph is clicked just outside the Archcathedral and the shining building you see through the street is Royal Palace of Warsaw Old Town. Because this church is hidden inside one of the narrow streets of Warsaw Old Town, it's quite easy to miss it.

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.
