The garden is a special place for contemplation, where we are surrounded by the fleeting beauty of the world: colourful flowers and fruit, sounds of insects and birds, whispering leaves and aromatic, tasty fruits, scents of flowers and herbs.

AT THE MARKET SQUARE OF WARSAW’S NEW TOWN

The New Town, one of the most beautiful spots in Warsaw. It emerged as a twin settlement of the Old Town in the 14th – 15th century, but it never gained as much recognition. This has not changed until today. While the noisy Old Town is bustling with tourists, the New Town is a good place to enjoy peace and quiet. In the past, one of the frequent guests of the Vistula River cliff near St. Mary’s Church was Maria Skłodowska-Curie, Noble Prize winner in chemistry for discovering polonium and radium. She used to come here to look at the river and contemplate. It was her place, not very far from her family house on Freta Street.

In this temple of tranquility, near the market square, you will encounter an extraordinary white church with adjacent monastery of St. Benedict’s Sisters of the Holy Sacrament.

The terraced garden of the monastery.

The sisters allowed us to take photos inside the monastery, wanting to share the sights that can never be seen by the outsiders. Now, they can all be admired by the participants of the project and citizens of Warsaw who visit the Balloon Gallery in the church. They will undoubtedly feel the uncanny atmosphere of the cloistered space of the convent.
