Built at the end of the 17th century, the baroque church is one of the most important monuments in Warsaw. It was designed by outstanding architects, with Josef Bellotti designing the building, and the front towers were designed by Jakub Fontana. It was here in 1683, King Jan III Sobieski announced his trust in God, himself and the motherland before the Turkish siege on Vienna.

In the pillars of the temple, there are urns containing the heart of composer Frederyk Chopin and Nobel prize-winning writer Wladyslaw Reymont.
