St. Kazimierz Church in Warsaw's New Town, Poland, part of the Benedictine Nuns of Perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament monastery in Warsaw

In Poland, the first convent of Benedictine of the Most Blessed Sacrament was founded in Warsaw in 1688 by Queen Marie Casimire in recognition of the victory of Polish King's Jan III Sobieski victory over the Turks near Vienna (1683).

The nuns departed from France on August 22, 1687, and arrived to Warsaw after two months of travel. Since the monastery was not yet built for them, they temporarily lived in the Royal Castle, where they started their adoration on January 1, 1688. They moved to a new monastery on June 27, 1688.

The Warsaw monastery is the only foundation from the time of the founder that exists continuously in the same place, and one of ten established during the lifetime of Mother Mechtilde. During the Warsaw Uprising in 1944 the church and convent were completely destroyed, burying in its ruins 35 nuns and a high number of inhabitants of the Old Town.

Church of the Holy Spirit in Warsaw

The Church of the Holy Spirit in Warsaw is a church at 3 Długa Street, in Warsaw's New Town.

The church was originally built in the Gothic style alongside a hospital in the 14th century. It was probably the first hospital of this type in the Mazovian region and was located just outside the walls of the Warsaw Old Town.

It was founded by Janusz the Elder, Duke of Warsaw, and handed over to the city in 1388. (Wikipedia)

St. Hyacinth's Church, named after Saint Hyacinth of Poland, is located in Warsaw's New Town at Freta Street 8/10.

St. Hyacinth's Church was founded by the Dominican Order and adjoins Warsaw's largest monastery. The church is a mixture of Renaissance and early-Baroque styles. Its construction began in 1603 and it was completed in 1639.

During the construction and shortly afterwards the church was encompassed with ornate chapels. In 1627 Jadwiga Mińska established the Holy Cross Chapel, the so-called Dark Chapel, and in 1651 the Royal Musicians founded the Chapel of Our Lady of the Snows.

When Warsaw was captured by Swedish and Brandenburgian forces in 1655, the church shared the same fate as other buildings in the city. it was ransacked and burned.[1] After the war it was rebuilt and consecrated in 1661 by bishop Wojciech Tolibowski, the bishop of Poznań. In 1662 the bell tower was erected, adjacent to the church, and in 1690 the Wyszogród pantler Adam Kotowski established the most important church feature - the St. Dominic Chapel. The ornate baroque building was constructed according to the design by prominent Warsaw architect Tylman Gamerski.

The 18th century was the age of the church's greatest prosperity. The monastery's library possessed the richest collection of volumes in Poland. Unfortunately it was later completely destroyed.

During World War II, the church and monastery served the Polish forces in the Warsaw Uprising as a field hospital.[1] This fact turned these buildings into targets of frequent bombings by the Germans.[1] During the bombardments over a thousand civilians and insurgents were killed. (Wikipedia)
