Archcathedral of St. John the Baptist Dec 10, 2010
The Archcathedral of St. John the Baptist is considered to be the main church of Warsaw’s old town. Some may even say that it is Poland's main church, but please don't tell that to the Krakowians... Construction began in 1390, with mayor extensions in the 17th and 19th century, the style became English New Gothic style. The constitution of the Polish-Lithuanian Empire was presented to the Public in this building in 1791 and the oath to it sworn. In 1944, German troops blew up most of the church as part of a planned destruction of Warsaw. The remaining walls were destroyed during the Warsaw Uprising in the same year. The reconstruction from 1948 to 1956 took place in its original Gothic style, although many baroque elements made it into the interior.

The interior was restored in Baroque styles with several paintings and sculptures from the 17th century. The crypt was used as a burial place for the Dukes of Masovia and several dignitaries from Polish history. The graves and the crypt can be visited for a small fee.
