1. From Warsaw: Tour to Chopin's Birthplace - Żelazowa Wola

Enjoy a fascinating journey to the roots of one of the world’s greatest composers and arguably the most famous Pole in history, Frédéric Chopin. On this guided tour, you’ll travel in a luxury Mercedes van to Chopin’s birthplace, Żelazowa Wola, located 1 hour outside of Warsaw. Here you’ll visit the renovated manor house where Chopin was born in 1810, which now functions as a musical museum. You’ll also get the chance to explore the building’s surroundings, including a modernist park filled with rare plants, ponds, and two glass pavilions, one of which is a concert hall.  Afterwards, you’ll stop at Brochów, a village near Żelazowa Wola, where you’ll visit the Church of Saint John the Baptist where Chopin was baptized. Located on the banks of the Bzura river, the church is an exceptional architecture treasure.

Warsaw: Private Half-Day Zelazowa Wola Tour

2. Warsaw: Private Half-Day Zelazowa Wola Tour

Your tour begins as your private driver picks you up from your Warsaw accommodation. From there, depart for Zelazowa Wola for a half-day tour. Throughout your 2-hour tour, your local English-speaking guide introduces you to the atmosphere of this beautiful place. In Chopin's home at Zelazowa Wola, the atmosphere of a Polish manor house from the early 19th century has been recreated. There are however no objects that belonged to the composer's family, and the original layout of the rooms has been changed. Today, the house is divided by a hallway running along its center; on its right-hand side are the hearth room, the dining room, and the music room; and on the left-hand side are the mother's room, the children's room, and the father's study. Among the items assembled in the house are a piano by Leszczyński of Warsaw (from the first half of the 19th century), a 19th-century giraffe piano by Fried, Külbors of Wrocław, 19th-century Biedermeier-style furniture, and portraits of Fryderyk Chopin and his family. Standing in the music room is the modern-day piano played by pianists in the Chopin concerts held during the summer season. Erected in the landscape garden are four monuments to Fryderyk Chopin. The music of Frederic Chopin is heard among the trees in the park on every corner. The first of these is an obelisk resembling a gravestone, ceremoniously unveiled in 1894. It bears a medallion with a bust of Chopin and the inscription "F. Chopin 22. II. 1810" above a lyre ringed with leaves. Discover other dedications to the famous composer, with the most recent work being Zofia Wolska's bronze bust of Chopin on a sandstone base, funded by the Stadtmuseum in Düsseldorf. Following your sightseeing and lunch, your driver takes you back to Warsaw where you are dropped off to your chosen location.
