Who really was Frederic Chopin? An ingenious pianist and artist? One of the most talented Polish composers of romanticism era? Or a humble piano student, who dreamed of fame and recognition? With our knowledgeable guide you’ll learn much more about him!

Join us on a fascinating journey to the roots of one of the greatest composers in the world. We will take you to Żelazowa Wola – a birthplace of Fryderyk Chopin, just 1 hour drive from Warsaw. The main attraction is renovated manor house from XVIII century, where Chopin was born in 1810. Today, it houses a biographical museum of a Musician. Building is surrounded by a modernist park filled with rare species of plants, many ponds and two glass pavilions (one of them is a concert hall), upon the river Utrata.

Brochów is a village near Żelazowa Wola and another stop on our tour. Its Church of St John the Baptist is Chopin’s baptism place. Situated on the banks of the Bzura river is an exceptional sacral architecture treasure.

Great Experience

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip with Conrad. Having a local guide is a great way to learn about a city. Not not did we learn about Chopin, we
learned about the the countryside on our way. We learned more about the challenges Poland has faced. He answered all our questions and told us about conflicting viewpoints regarding events in Chopin’s life.
Lovely day for a ride in the country

Favorite part was talking with Marcin about the history of his country, Poland, and his knowledge about many countries in our world. Very engaging. He gave this tour for just the two of us, and we had lots of time to tour the grounds and house, then to see the church where Chopin was baptized.
Wonderful and Educational

I really enjoyed the tour and getting to talk with my guide about not only Chopin but also the country of Poland, and its history and language. My guide was very knowledgeable and informative and answered all of my questions. I felt safe and comfortable as a solo female traveller which is important to me and there was enough time to see everything and take it all in. I recommend this to other traveller's with an interest in Chopin and his beginnings, worth the money
Wonderful Day with chopin

The guide Hilgier was awesome. He knew a Lot of stuff and was very kind and helpful. He even got us tickets for a concert in the city.
The only thing that could be improved was the fact, that it felt a bit rushed.
Memorable tour to Chopin's roots

A memorable tour to Fryderyk Chopin's roots, on a sunny day in August. Our tour guide and driver was Martin, who did a great job all the way. He was also highly enjoyable company on the ride from and back to Warsaw, sharing many interesting details about Poland and its people.

Arriving in Żelazowa Wola, after a comfortable 45-minute drive from Warsaw, we started off in the museum with a movie about Chopin’s life. Subsequently followed by a stroll through the beautiful surrounding park. We made a brief stop outside Chopin’s place of birth, the manor house, where a wonderful piano concert was taking place. Soon we were transported to the village of Brochów, to visit the church where Chopin was baptised. Coming back to the park, limited time was left for the manor house interior and its exhibited artifacts.

All in all a great experience, though the available time to spend in the park and inside the manor house is too short. Perhaps the 30-minute movie in the museum could be optional. With that leaving more time for the park and manor house - and for that shot of Polish vodka that now fell in between ;-)
