“It is absolutely inconceivable how two genius abilities became united in Chopin, the greatest melodist and the most original master of harmony” – N. Rimsky-Korsakov
Żelazowa Wola is a village on the Utrata River in the Mazovian Voivodship, about 60 km (37 miles) west of Warsaw. The village is the birthplace of Frederic Chopin – world famous pianist and composer. It is known for its picturesque Mazovian landscape, and numerous winding streams surrounded by willows and hillocks. A museum devoted to Chopin is located in the preserved annex of the former manor of the Chopin family, surrounded by a beautiful park. Beautifully renovated nearby Brochow church was the place where little Frederic was baptised.
