St. Anna's Church, Warsaw: 15 reviews and 35 photos
Originated after 1454, extended in XVI and XVII centuries. In 1788 Stanisław Kostka Potocki and Chrystian Peter Aigner designed a Baroque-classicisstic façade decorated with sculptures of Jacob Monaldi Franciszek Pinck. When the so called Trasa WZ was build, the church was in danger of collapsing, because of sliding down of the Vistula scarp. The church was saved by means of ferro-concrete pillars supporting the scarp. In St Anne cloister an old vault was preserved, as well as a gothic chamber having a vault supported by one pillar (coming from early XVI century). The church colonnade, designed by Ch.P. Aigner, comes from 1819 - 1821.
