Structure in General

existing [completed]


  • The first church built on this site was a wooden structure in 1454, founded by Anna z Holsztyńskich for the Bernardine order.
  • At the beginning of 16th century the building was thoroughly rebuilt, and in 1578 Queen Anna Jagiellonka started construction of a campanile.
  • The war with Sweden in the years 1655-1660 left the old church completely destroyed, but reconstruction began shortly after with completion in 1667.
  • The 17th century reconstrution gave the church a baroque façade and wooden ornaments made by Paschalis Scholtz.
  • The urbanist changes of Krakowskie Przedmieście in the late 18th century left the church untouched, though the façade was redesigned in the classicist style and a renaissance campanile was added.
  • The façade is decorated with sculptures of the four evangelists by Jakub Monaldi and Franciszek Pinck.
  • When the Bernardine order was expelled from Poland, the church was handed over to the Warsaw University clergy and renamed St. Anna University Church.
