Out of town

Żelazowa Wola

- a romantic country manor housing the Chopin museum, and the place where this world famous composer was born in 1810. The rooms look as it did in Chopin’s time – one can see family portraits, copies of notes and documents, and of course a piano – one of the instruments that Chopin played. One of the most affecting experiences is the concerts held in this manor. To sit in the garden and listen to music played by the best performers is truly moving.

Łowicz – Arkadia – Nieborów

- Western Mazowsze is a region of beautiful nature, folk art, country manors, old churches and museums. Łowicz is known thanks to its local art. A museum full of typical costumes from the 19th and 20th centuries, paper cuttings and embroidery. In the museum garden, there are two fully equipped and decorated old country houses. On the way to Nieborów, one should stop in Arkadia, a sentimental, romantic park arranged by the owner of the area – Countess Radziwiłł. Nieborów used to be the residence of this aristocratic family; one of the most powerful in Poland. The symbol of this residence is the head of Niobe, Greek goddess, carved in white marble in the 4th century BC.


- Germans opened this penal camp in 1941, which was transformed into an extermination camp a year later. Around 800,000 people, most of them Jewish, lost their lives here. The camp was demolished by the Germans during the war, and only the memorial commemorates the victims.
