51 Nowogrodzka Street. The St. Barbara church.
The church was erected in the years 1883-1886.
During the Warsaw Uprising 1944 it became a place of the severest fights throughout the Uprising. After the Uprising's fall, having expelled the priests and the Warsaw inhabitants, Germans mined the church and blew it up. As for the church furnishing, no more than foundation with cellars, fragments of the main altar and few paintings survived.
The church was reconstructed in the years 1946-1979.

On the church wall there are these plaques to be found:
- the one commemorating the Home Army soldiers of the unit "Zaremba" of the batalion "Piorun" as well as heroic habitants of the area who fell in the Warsaw Uprising;
- the one in memory of the dead, the missing and the fallen Home Army soldiers from the command of VII District "Obroża" and the unit "Zaremba-Piorun".
