St. Hyacinth's Church

Warsaw, Poland

St. Hyacinth's Church (Polish: St. Jacek's Church; named after Saint Hyacinth - one of several patron saints of Poland) is located in Warsaw's New Town at Freta 8/10.

It was founded by Dominicans, and is adjoined by Warsaw's largest monastery.
The church is a mixture between styles from both Renaissance and early baroque. It was started in 1603 and completed in 1639.
During the Second World War, the church and monastery were used as a field hospital.
This made them a target for frequent bombing, especially by the Nazis in the Warsaw Uprising.

Beautiful night shot with fantastic framing!

P.S. Pbase has problem showing my recently posted picture in your "favorites group". A lot of friends thought that I haven't on Pbase for a long time. In fact, I'm posting a picture each day.
