1 Żytnia Street. The Divine Mercy and St. Faustina church.
Built in the second part of the 19th century, the church is owned by the Convent of the Holy Mary of Mercy, the one to which St. Faustina also belonged.
In August 1944 both the church and the adjoining conventual buildings were burnt by Germans while most of nuns and alumnas were transported away to concentration camps.
The reconstruction of the church started very late, i.e. in the year 1974. Initially it was decided to preserve the factual state of the church, namely with traces of the tragic, war past, simultaneously being alive church.
After some time that idea had changed and the church was reconstructed. What was preserved was only the fragment of the inner bricked wall as well as the outer wall from the side of the Żytnia street as it had originally looked during the Warsaw Uprising.
