  St. Anna's Church

The first stop on the Royal Way is St. Anna's Church, located on the east side of the street immediately south of Castle Square. Originally built in 1454, the church was destroyed during the Swedish invasion and then rebuilt in 1600 in a baroque style. Additional alterations gave it a neoclassical facade, while a freestanding belfry acquired a neo-Renaissance form. Despite its close proximity to Old Town and the heart of some of the fiercest fighting during the Warsaw Uprising, the church somehow managed to avoid major damage during World War II. Today it is the most popular place in the entire city for young couples to get married. I saw no fewer than three weddings there during my stay.
