Chopin’s Warsaw and Masovia

Chopin’s Warsaw and Masovia

Let’s imagine music background for the classic romantic love story with trees, golden fields, mysterious forests and wild streams and of course an old-fashioned couple in their sophisticated clothes, holding each other’s hands, walking round a small mansion surrounded by a colorful garden. What can it be? Definitely Chopin! That sentimental piano, always touching, always full of emotions.
Now let us take you to Chopin’s world. Our tour is not a history lesson, it is not about sitting and listening to music. It is a true journey in time, for which you need someone special as a guide or rather a tutor, who helps you understand where the Chopin’s genius came from.
We meet you in Warsaw and it is where our story begins. Chopin Museum, located in an old, small castle on a hill, is just a few steps from the main city center. Our guides have been trained to show it to you exactly the way the founders (musicians, professors, composers) wanted it to be shown, for it is not a typical museum. They made it fully interactive, as their aim is to let you understand the complicated classical music theory as well as the complicated biography of Chopin. We follow then Frederick’s footsteps in Warsaw. The amazingly restored Royal Route looks almost identical to the 19th century photos and drawings you’ve seen in the museum. Chopin’s family apartments in three different locations, University of Music, his favorite cafes, parks where he dated his first girlfriends – now that you know the story, it is all within a walking distance. And before we leave the city, let’s do a sound check and test acoustics in one of the churches where Chopin first performed.
After lunch, it is about time to have a smooth drive to the city outskirts. Look for an inspiration (Chopin’s or your own) and admire the rural landscape of Mazovia district. We get to Żelazowa Wola – Frederick’s birthplace. Here, in a beautiful, tiny mansion his parents met and his mother gave birth to him in 1810. Even after they had moved to Warsaw, the Chopin family used to come back to the countryside very often and it is frequently described as a key to understand Chopin’s style – romanticism. Walk there, breathe the fresh air, sit under the weeping willow and you won’t disagree.
As a conclusion you visit two sacred places. First, the parish church in Brochow, where Chopin’s parents got married and Frederick was baptized. What’s unique about it – the church was used as a fortress from the middle ages to World War II. Its huge brick construction and strong fence look somewhat peculiar dominating the little village for which it serves nowadays. Back to Warsaw, finally you have a moment for your own imagination. Chopin’s life and opus was unfinished. Now, just look at the plaque on one of the columns inside the Holly Cross Church. There is a small urn behind. Urn with the young composer’s heart. It was his last will to bring it back to his hometown, as he died in Paris at the age of thirty-nine.

My father and I recently returned from our Ultimate Poland tour and we really cannot express how impressed we were with the RealPoland coordination, staff, accommodations, food, local guides and transportation. The itinerary was filled with visits to key historic and cultural sites along with some fun activities like making our own Polish pottery and a pierogi workshop - admittedly, my father and I still need to work on these skills. The accommodations were top class European standard hotels. Breakfast each day was provided in the hotels and dinners were pre-planned at various interesting restaurants in whichever city or town we happened to be staying. Lunch was on us, this may seem daunting but the tours are arranged so that a convenient lunch break happens in a square or Old Town area with an ample choice of cafes and restaurants. As for the Polish cuisine, don’t expect kielbasa and pierogis for every meal - they like to mix it up for you.

Our original intent for taking the tour was to learn more about our Polish heritage. We asked to add an extra day on the end so that we could visit my great grandparents village - the Real Poland staff took care of everything for us, an extended itinerary with hotel, transportation and a local guide.

I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed the beautiful county of Poland. It's clean, safe and very affordable. Additionally, the staff at RealPoland are amazing - especially all of the "Magdas". If you are considering a trip to Poland and are worried about getting around or finding the right tour I would highly recommend RealPoland they are first class.

Natalia' and Magda's quick responsiveness was tremendous! Overall, my total xperience with Real Poland was excellent. They were helpful during setting up my tour plans, and also very helpful when we had to cancel. Natalia researched my grandfather and found lots of information about him that I did not know. I am satisfied with the work she did and I look forward to traveling to Poland in the future. I hope to visit the area where he was from and maybe meet some of my relatives.
