Discover the musical heritage of Fryderyk Chopin in Żelazowa Wola

28 April 2024
The Fryderyk Chopin Birthplace House in Żelazowa Wola is a place that every music lover should visit at least once in their life. One of the greatest composers of all time was born here, in a former manor house. The museum offers not only the opportunity to see the interiors where the young Chopin grew up, but also the unique chance to hear his music played on a historic Erard piano from 1838.
