The Orthodox Cathedral of St. Mary Magdalene was built in the 19th century when this part of Poland was part of the Russian Empire, during the times of Poland’s partitions.
The Russian revival style church was designed by Russian architect Nikolai Sychev. It was supposed to make Russians coming to Warsaw feel like they were home as they were getting off the train at the station just across the street.
Inside you will find a beautiful iconostasis and frescos painted by Sergei Vinogradov.
