Here we were hosted several times. With a cappella concerts we organized for choirs during the International Choral Festival in Warsaw or when running oratorio projects for choirs,
like Ein Deutsches Requiem by J. Brahms.
The shrine is a very spectacular piece of the city´s landmarks and history. It has witnessed, during the Warsaw Uprising
heavy fighting between the insurgents and German Nazi. Its original Baroque interiors have survived and adorn the interior, the high altar is is a replica of the original made in 1700.
The urn with Frederic´s Chopin´s heart is placed in second pillar on the left-hand side of the nave. It was brought from Paris, after his death by Chopin´s sister, in accordance with his will.
The Holy Cross Church is situated next to Staszic Palace that houses the headquarters of the Polish cademy of Sciences. In front of the building: the monument to Nicolaus Copernicus, the great Polish astronomer.
Designed by Bertel Thorvaldsen, taken away by Germans during WWII for scrap, luckily found after the war and returned to its site.

the largest church organ in Warsaw and its fine location The Holy Cross Church is a popular concert venue of the city.
