Warsaw Chopin and Zelazowa Wola Tour

From € 70,00

Zelazowa Wola - the park.

The composer repeatedly came to Zelazowa Wola and during his visits in the summer brought out a piano to the garden, so that the music was listening not only by household, but also by peasants from the surrounding villages.

 

Today, in the park you can enjoy more than 10,000 species of trees and plants watered for more than 100 kilometers an irrigation system.

 

Taking care not only about the visual and olfactory qualities, in the park installed a professional sound system, which establishes the right mood, not only in the mansion, but also in all major locations.

 

116 speakers of Bose brand in the shape of mushrooms hidden among the plants.

Each speaker emits sound within a radius of 360 degrees - from 10 to 80 W.

 

The result is an impression of listening to the live music of Chopin.

Warsaw. Visitationist Church.

One of few sights in Warsaw which survived the war.

 

Noteworthy is magnificent baroque interior with pulpit in the shape of a boat with a sail, web and anchor, and historic organs on which played Chopin. In this church held concerts and compulsory Sunday Masses for pupils and students.

 

From a letter of Frederick:

"I was lyceum organist. For this reason, they must respect me. Ha, gracious lord benefactor, what I am a head! The first person in the whole High School after parish priest! [...] I play every week, on Sundays, at the Visitationist on the organs, and the rest is singing."

 

Until today, survived from organs three voices (flutes), which sound the same as in the days of Chopin.

Subbas 16' in pedal. Bourdon 16' in manual 1 and Doubeltflet 8' in manual 2.

 

Today, the church for Poles is associated not only with the composer, but also with well-known poet-priest Jan Twardowski, who in 1960 was the pastor there for decades, and with his famous verse:

 

Let’s hurry to love people, they pass away so fast.

Warsaw. Freta Street.

In old times was very popular because of its many hotels and cafes, as well as numerous public houses.

 

Officially we know that Chopin's favorite premises was a "U Brzezińskiej" where read domestic and foreign newspapers and coffee served waitresses in folk costumes.

 

Discussed there about politics and art. Looked through the windows of the cafe on the Hotel Saski, consisting of two apartment buildings, on opposite sides of the street and connected by transition called the Bridge of Sighs.

 

And sometimes visited the famous cafe "Dziurka Marysi" (Hole of Mary).

Mischievous name comes from the hidden narrow door that for bystanders were barely visible.

Warsaw. Wessel Palace.

In this building was so-called Saxon Post, carrying mail letters and packages to Saxony in Germany.

 

Here Frederic Chopin began his farewell with Warsaw. Among the group of companions, he gave luggage into a stagecoach and started a journey together with all the merry company.

 

According to tradition, leaving person was discharged to the border of town. Therefore, the first stop fell already after 4 kilometers. In the "Yellow Tavern" in Warsaw's Wola.

 

Friends of Frederic Chopin, together with his teacher Josef Elsner (the one who on the certificate of school grade wrote - "special aptitude, musical genius") performed composed especially for this occasion - cantata for voices "Born in the Polish Land".

 

At the next day - officially due to waiting for post bus - Frederic Chopin left Warsaw forever.

Chopin's posthumous mask.

Frederick died a long time, fighting for every breath of air.

 

He weighed only 40 kg with 170 centimeters tall.

 

The wax mask, removed after his death, was never shown to the family.
Weighed only to present an idealized relief.

 

And during the funeral ceremony in Paris in La Madeleine Church to say goodbye to Chopin, performed Mozart's Requiem.

 

Sob of several thousand women drowned choir and orchestra. The surrounding streets stopped still.
