Żelazowa Wola – where Frederic Chopin was born

In the beginning of our exploration of Warsaw surroundings in the footsteps of Chopin we will drive 60 km outside of Warsaw to see Żelazowa Wola.

Due to its high value for the Polish culture the manor house is now a museum, and you can stroll through a beautiful botanical garden around it. It is also possible to listen to Chopin’s music recitals (Saturdays and Sundays).

Next, we drive to visit a late-gothic parish church of Brochów. This is where Chopin’s parents got married. This is also where baby Frederic was baptized.

Discover the beauty of Nieborow palace

Warsaw surroundings feature splendid aristocratic residences. One of them, Nieborów palace, located approx. 1 hour drive to the west of Warsaw, belonged to one of the wealthiest and most influential Polish noble families – Radziwill. We begin this tour with a visit in this magnificent residence, built in baroque style by the end of the 17th century and owned by the Radziwills until 1945. Its rich decorations, original artefacts, paintings and famous Dutch tiles from 18th and 19th century, make an unforgettable impression on the visitors.
