Jean-Paul II Collection

On Bank Square, in the former Stock Exchange building, we find this amazing collection of European paintings. The neoclassical style dates from the 19th C. Recognisable by its rotunda capped with a dome, it was the work of A. Corazzi (architect of the Grand Theatre). The collection, bequeathed by a couple of patrons to the Warsaw church, contains some 400 works by the greatest painters of the past six centuries, such as Rubens, Van Gogh, Renoir, Goya and many others.
