Architecture of Warsaw




All around Europe every big city has its own style, which means, that their architecture can be totally different yet breathtaking. Warsaw got many impacts throughout the centuries, so gothic, renaissance, baroque and neoclassical styles well coexist.

Gothic architecture is represented in the majestic churches but also at the burgher houses and fortifications. The most significant ones are St. John's Cathedral (14th century), the temple is a typical example of the so-called Masovian gothic style, St. Mary's Church (1411), a town house of Burbach family (14th century) and the Royal Castle.


 
The unique character of Warsaw Baroque was a mixture of local traditions with Western European patterns. Later the rococo style became popular, the most impressive examples of rococo architecture are Czapski Palace, Palace of the Four Winds and Visitationist Church.

The Neoclassical architecture in Warsaw can be described by the simplicity of the geometrical forms teamed with a great inspiration from the Roman period. Some of the best examples of the neoclassical style are the Palace on the Water, Carmelite Church and Evangelical Holy Trinity Church which is really worth visiting.


 
The economic growth during the first years of Congress Poland caused a rapid rise in architecture. The Neoclassical revival affected all aspects of architecture, the most notable are the Great Theater and buildings located at Bank Square.

Notable examples of contemporary architecture include the Office Building at Pilsudski Square or the Palace of Culture and Science which is the highest building in Warsaw.
