CHOPIN 2010 Celebrations office



On Tamka Street in Warsaw the most modern biographical museum in Europe was constructed.



In 2010, a large-scale investment project was completed envisaging the transformation of Fryderyk Chopin's birthplace into an attractive and functional museum and tourist centre. 


The Chopin Centre

At 43 Tamka Street in Warsaw, the Chopin Centre was opened; it faces the Ostrogski Castle, the Fryderyk Chopin Museum's seat. 



At the time of Fryderyk Chopin’s birth, Żelazowa Wola belonged to the parish of Brochów, where, in Saint Roch’s Church, the composer was baptised and where first his parents and later his sister Ludwika got married.




In the summer of 1828, Fryderyk Chopin spent his holidays at Konstanty Pruszak's, his schoolmate, home at the Palace in Sanniki, Poland. In his letter to his friend, Tytus Woyciechowski, Chopin wrote: "(...) I was in Sanniki at the Pruszaks', I spent the whole summer there (…) I reworked the last Rondo C major for two pianos and practiced it today". 


The Holy Cross Church

In 2010, renovation of the Holy Cross Church together with the adjoining Congregation House (pl. Dom Zgromadzenia) came to an end. 



The Visitationist Church

The Visitationist Church in Warsaw, where young Fryderyk Chopin performed on organ, underwent massive external renovation in relation to the 200th anniversary of birth of the composer.

Chopin Benches

The multimedia project "Chopin Benches" (pl. "Ławeczki Chopina") realised in 2009 by the authorities of Warsaw constitute one of the most interesting initiatives of the Jubilee Year promoting the capital of Poland as the home city of the composer.
