The Gothic Revival Church of Our Lady of Consolation  is situated in the town of Zyrardow (55 km south-west of Warsaw), which remains a unique example of nineteenth-century industrial architecture. The church was founded by the owner of the Zyrardow flax plant, Charles Dittrich, who donated over 3 million bricks from his own brickworks.
The church has an impressive neo-Gothic high altar with the statue of the Madonna and Child in the centre. - in:
