14/23.- Warsaw, The Church of Saint Alexander and Three Crosses Square


This beautiful neo-classical church was built at the beginning of the nineteenth century. It was given the name of the Russian tsar, who had been recently crowned the king of Poland (those were the days when the relations between Poland and Russia were still quite good).

The name of the square is much older - it comes from the three crosses that stand there until today - two of them are on the red poles (one of the poles is hidden on this picture behind a tree), the third one is carried by Saint John Nepomucen - the patron of the Czechs who is very popular in Poland as well. He is turning his back to us on this picture.
