What to expect

Go on a fascinating journey to discover the roots of one of the greatest composers in the world. On this half-day tour you will visit the birthplace of Frederic Chopin, Zelazowa Wola, just a 1-hour drive from Warsaw. Marvel at the renovated 18th-century manor house, where Chopin was born in 1810. Today it houses the biographical museum of the world-famous pianist. The building is surrounded by a modernist park filled with rare species of plants, several ponds and two glass pavilions (one of which serves as a concert hall), upon the Utrata river. After exploring the manor and its lovely botanical garden, you will head to Brochów, a village near Żelazowa Wola where you will visit the Church of St John the Baptist where. It was here that Chopin's parents were married and he himself was baptized.

Find out from your private guide who Fryderyk Chopin really was: an ingenious pianist and artist, one of the most talented Polish composers of Romanticism or a humble piano student, who dreamed of fame and recognition?
