Chopin Monument: Poland's Immortalized Music Reminder For You

Chopin Monument

The Polish receptionist from our hotel recommended to go and see the Chopin Monument first before anything else, as it represents what Poland is all about. True enough, this large bronze statue of Frédéric Chopin standing in the upper part of Łazienki Park is one of the most rousing monuments you will ever see in Warsaw.

It doesn’t matter how the present situation looks like in Warsaw, but what really matters is how the Chopin Monument makes the whole area like a unique reverie. This was designed in 1907 for its planned erection on the centenary of Chopin's birth in 1910. But due to controversy, war, and other historical challenges, the statue was erected in 1926.

For those of you who don’t know about this guy, Frédéric François Chopin as a Polish composer and a virtuoso pianist of the Romantic era, who is known for being the piano god of all time.  Now you see the music running around this place, yes?
