3/5 pl. Grzybowski Street. The All Saints' church.
The church was built between the years 1883-1892.
It was slightly damaged during the siege of Warsaw in September 1939. During the occupation it was known as one of three Christian churches to be situated on the ghetto area and help Christians of Jewish origin who had been made live in the ghetto. During the Warsaw Uprising 1944 the church was controlled by the Polish people, which meant constant threat of attacks and damages. On August 17 during bombing 30 people lost their lives. After the Uprising only building walls and cellars survived. The equipment, including altars, paintings and organs, was destroyed.
The reconstruction lasted till the year 1979.

On the church walls there are plaques:
- commemorating the Home Army soldiers of IV unit "Gurt" of the I District Warszawa Śródmieście;
- commemorating the soldiers of the 5th company commanded by Lt. "Janusz" Janusz Domański and of the assault platoon commanded by Sgt. "Grześ" Jan Kreter from the Home Army unit "Chrobry II";
- commemorating the Home Army soldiers of the assault company "Jeremi" from the unit "Chrobry II" who fell in the Warsaw Uprising;
- in memory of 20 Home Army soldiers of the company "Jeremi";
- commemorating the soldiers of the Home Army IV Region of the 41st company of the battalion "Kiliński";
- commemorating the soldiers of the battalion "Kiliński" who fell in the Warsaw Uprising;
