The Field Cathedral of the Polish Army

Warsaw, Poland

The Field Cathedral of the Polish Army (Polish: Katedra Polowa Wojska Polskiego), also known as the Church of Our Lady Queen of the Polish Crown) is the main garrison church of Warsaw and the representative cathedral of the entire Polish Army. The church was built 1660 - 1701.

In the past the church served a variety of communities and roles: it used to be the church of the Collegium Nobilium and in the 19th century was also turned into an Orthodox temple. Currently all major military religious feasts in Warsaw are held there.

It is located on Dluga Street 13/15, opposite the Heroes of the Warsaw Uprising monument and Krasinski Sq., close to Warsaw's Old Town.
