Described here are the places where Chopin lived, stayed on his summer holidays or visited in passing. Each of the chapters — devoted to the regions of Mazovia, Wielkopolska, Malopolska, etc. — relates the circumstances surrounding the composer’s stay and describes the history and the current state of the location (building). Most amply discussed are the parts of Warsaw connected with Chopin. The identification of numerous buildings has made it possible to outline the routes of daily walks or ‘Chopin trails’. The guidebook contains reproductions of almost fifty historical illustrations from the first half of the nineteenth century, three maps and around one hundred photographs taken specially for this publication. The historical information is the work of Marita Albán Juárez, whilst the contemporary strands and the rich photographic documentation are provided by Ewa Sławinska-Dahlig.

Translated and edited by John Comber
