Protestant church of the Holy Trinity based on the idea of the Roman Pantheon with impressive, 58 m (190'') tall dome topped by a lantern was the tallest Warsaw church (like some 19-floor building) in the 18th century.

The church built in 1778 - 1781 for public funds in mostly Roman catholic Warsaw was a sign of tolerance of the nation and the last king of Poland. The neo-classical style church was burnt down in 1939 and rebuilt in 1948 - 1958. It's partky hidden behind scaffoldings due to renovation works in 2006. The massive exterior decorated with inpressive classical Doric portico and rwo rectangular smaller addings is regarded as one of the best examples of early classical style in Poland and contrasts with simple, round and empty interior with a very modest altar, surrounded by two floor columnaded gallery.

The holy service takes place on each Sunday at 10.30 am. Warning: there are no strict opening hours given, so you may find close doors. The parish office is located just by the church, in 4 Kredytowa Street. Well, the most interesting was the exhibition inside and its creator... check my general tips, please.

The architect of this impressive structure Zug also designed the Palace in Natolin (far, southern suburb of Warsaw now) which after pretty renovation houses Euriopean Centre Natolin.
