The Polish countryside: Where mazurkas and polonaises were created
While visiting Poland it is a must to visit the places where he lived and spent half of his life. His birthplace is exceptionally charming; in the village of Zelazowa Wola situated 55 km outside Warsaw, a lovely manor house later turned into a museum was his first home. After strolling in a small romantic park we will drive to Brochow to visit the unique (being stronghold and shrine at the same time) church where Frederic was baptized and his parents were married. Return to Warsaw along country road to see typical Polish villages with old wooden houses and stork nests.
On Sundays (May to September) there is the opportunity to listen to open air piano recitals performed by some of Poland's best pianists. If your visit comes on another day you can book the evening piano recital in one of the palaces in Warsaw (additional price from 60 to 130 zlotys, depending on the place).
It is recommended to combine both tours: city tour of Warsaw in the morning, and in the afternoon Chopin's country tour.
As in tour overview:
We start with seeing spots in Warsaw marked with Chopin's presence (where he lived, where he gave concerts, where his heart is burried), his monuments.
Then we drive to Zelazowa Wola, his birthplace to visit his museum and charming park surrounding the manor house.

Wonderful day spent with Renata! We appreciate her knowledge and expertise. The only way to see Warsaw is with her. Chopin tour and the countryside was so interesting and lovely.
