St. Kazimierz Church

Enjoy a quiet moment’s contemplation away from the city streets in the serene, all-white interior of this church. 

St. Kazimierz Church is known for its simplicity and for being a place of calm and reverence. Inside, the white décor is punctuated with polished wood, marble and flashes of shining gold and is lit by the sunshine that streams through its huge dome. Spend a few moments reflecting in this peaceful space.

Admire the beauty of this white-domed Palladian church. Originally built as an extension to an aristocratic palace, the building was later converted into a church by the city to celebrate victory over the Turkish Army in Vienna. As with so many other sacred buildings in Warsaw, St. Kazimierz suffered extensive damage during World War II. Tragically, it was being used as a field hospital when it was blown up and the attack killed a huge number of people.

The citizens of Warsaw rebuilt the church from the ground up and gave it a new minimalist interior. Note how the pared-back design here contrasts with the more ornate style of many of Warsaw’s other Catholic churches.

Look for the remaining pieces of the original church, including the splendid marble tomb of an 18th-century princess. The tomb was painstakingly rebuilt after the war. The pulpit, organ and bells also date from the 18th century. 

Read up on the history of St. Kazimierz before your visit or arrange for a guided tour of the area to find out more. A 15th-century Polish crown prince, Kazimierz is revered for being a gifted, devout and generous youth who dedicated his time to helping the poor.  

Explore the charming town square in front of the church and wander through the traditional garden behind it. St. Kazimierz Church is located in Warsaw’s New Town.
