Yeah, it's a nice one, overall for religious people, but still isn't the kind of "don't miss out attraction". For people who love places' history, this can be super, since he was important to the city.

Statue itself is quite decent, but lacks any further information for tourists who would like to know why was this man so important to get a statue in such a prominent place.

This monument stands outside St. Joseph Church. It is a well done sculpture and makes a nice photo with the church in the background. The white façade of the church gleams in the sunlight. Inside is a beautiful vaulted ceiling with ornate décor on the walls and pillars, as you would expect.

Worth a quick look if walking down this street. The church is nice and the cardinal out the front is life like. My wife thought it was john paul 2nd but alas no. ;-)

Seems like the Catholic church always has a monument to its Cardinals. This monument is pretty impressive showing the cardinal in all his regalia. It is on one of the popular walking streets in Warsaw and worth a photo and a stop to see the church.

The monument is great !! The church is traditional Roman Catholic. It well worth stopping for a minute while you are wandering or on tour.

I just have to take a photo of this one. It is a very life-like representation - proportionate, with a natural posture. The cardinal seems to be in deep thoughts - contemplating the state of humanity? I see the crinkle in his brows. Nice! Thumbs up!

Thank May K
