The oldest church of Warsaw Jul 22, 2008
The Saint Johns Cathedral is the oldest church in Warsaw, and its history dates back until the start of the 14th century. At first this was a small building that wasn't so important, but in 1798 it became a cathedral. Many kings were crowned here and many famous Poles were buried in this building.

The many different styles of architecture were greatly damaged by bombs during the war. What remains today is mainly the Gothic reconstruction. Inside the Saint Johns Cathedral is an important cross that is said to be miraculous. It dates back to the early 16th century and contains human hair (!). Apart from the cross, don't forget to look at the beautiful Gothic art that is inside.
