08 - Church of St Anna

The church was built in the 15th century at the request of Princess Anna Holszańska. The Bernardines also moved here. The figure of Władysław from Gielniów is inseparably connected with the church. This monk was known not only for his passionate sermons but also for creating beautiful religious songs. Legend tells that during one of the sermons he rose above the pulpit. He died shortly thereafter. His body is buried in the church. Not everyone knows that Władysław from Gielniów is one of the patrons of Warsaw. Currently, the Bernardines do not live here and the church is an academic church. Here, too, Pope John Paul II met with young people several times.
