The Temple of Divine Providence (Polish: Świątynia Opatrzności Bożej), in southern Warsaw's Wilanów district, is one of the most important Roman Catholic buildings in Poland.

Two days after the Four-Year Sejm had passed the 3 May Constitution, on 5 May 1791, the members and the king made a commitment of thanksgiving to erect a church "ex voto of all estates ... dedicated to the highest Providence."

The Temple was to be built in the classicist style on the plan of a Greek cross. However, the Russian army attacked Poland, making construction impossible. Three years later Poland disappeared from the maps of Europe. Only a small ruined chapel, in the Botanical Garden in Agrykola (Ujazdów), survived.

After Poland regained independence in 1918 the Sejm of the restored Second Polish Republic passed an act to build the shrine on 17 March 1921


Bohdan Pniewski's proposal, 1939


What was stopped by partitions of Poland and 2nd World War, was achieved in free Poland



Temple was built in Miasteczko Wilanow, housing project for over 40 000 people in Wilanow district.



It's located near Wilanow Palace, built for the Victor of Battle of Vienna against Ottoman Empire- king Jan III Sobieski

Tricity/Trójmiasto/Gdańsk

Gdansk to host 2020 UEFA Europa League final
The distinctive Arena Gdańsk, venue for four games at UEFA EURO 2012, gets the nod



Arena Gdańsk in Gdansk, Poland, will stage the 2020 UEFA Europa League final.

Istanbul to host 2020 Champions League final
Porto to host 2020 Super Cup
Vienna to host 2020 women's final

Opened in 2011, Arena Gdańsk hosted four games at UEFA EURO 2012 – three group stage fixtures and Germany's 4-2 quarter-final win against Greece – and is home to Ekstraklasa side Lechia Gdańsk. Poland have played a number of international friendlies at the stadium, but the ground has yet to hold a match in UEFA club competition.

Located in the city's Letnica neighbourhood, the stadium's curved 45,000 square-metre exterior consists of 18,000 plates designed to resemble amber, which has long been extracted along the Baltic coast.

The decision was taken at Thursday's UEFA Executive Committee meeting in Kyiv.

Permission for construction of another tower was given. It's not known when construction will start.

Teatr Wielki Opera Narodowa. One of the biggest theatres in the world. Biggest scene called "Scena Moniuszki" could fit whole famous Milan's La Scala inside.
