A thematic tour of Warsaw and the nearby countryside. A specialised guide will lead you in the footsteps of the greatest Polish composer, that genius of piano music, Fryderyk Chopin (1810-1849).
Your tour will begin on the Royal Route, where you will visit the Holy Cross Church with the urn containing the heart of Chopin. Then you will be driven to the Royal Lazienki Park where stands the famous monument dedicated to Fryderyk Chopin.
After visiting the sights in Warsaw (where he lived 1810-1830) you will head to the birthplace of Fryderyk Chopin, a small manor house in Zelazowa Wola, 50 kilometres west of Warsaw. Chopin spent only the first seven months of his life there, but the place is worth visiting – this typical old Polish country house of the gentry has a cosy museum and a lovely park. On the way you will have an opportunity to enjoy the scenery of the Masovian countryside and stop in Brochow – its 16th century parish church witnessed Chopin’s baptism and also the wedding ceremony of his parents in 1806.
