Żelazowa Wola – Chopin Tour
Located 50 kms west from Warsaw, the village of Zelazowa Wola is the place where Fryderyk Chopin was born, spent the first months of his life and later in his childhood used to spend his holidays. It was here where Polish nature, folk culture and music played by local peasants, inspired his romantic compositions.
The tour will commence with collecting you from your accommodation in a comfortable car or minivan. Driving time to Zelazowa Wila is ca. 1 hour.
In the village, we will visit the house where Fryderyk was born and his family lived. In modern visitors centre you will watch two movies – one telling the story of the estate, second about the life of Chopin.
