Żelazowa Wola - the Birthplace of F. Chopin

art & culturemuseumstransport

Offer: Free with Warsaw Pass

Fryderyk Chopin was born in Żelazowa Wola on the March 1, 1810 (some sources give February 22 as the date). The Chopin Family came to live in the left wing of the Skarbek manor when Chopin's father Nicholas was taken on as a tutor for this local family.

The public began taking an interest in Chopin's birthplace in the second half of the XIXth century – the annex was renovated and an obelisk bearing the composer's effigy in bas relief was unveiled. In 1926 the most important renovation works were initiated. The interior of the manor house was rebuilt in 1948 based on a design by Mieczysław Kuzma.

The park and the garden were designed by Franciszek Krzywda-Polkowski.  The grounds were revamped in 2010, making it one of the most beautiful parks in Europe.
