Sopot

Dworek Sierakowskich

A beautifully restored 300-year-old Dworek (Manor House), built in 1714 and served as a summer residence first for the French court and later for Polish aristocracy in the 18th century. Purchased by Count Kajetan Sierakowski in 1793, after whom the house would become associated with, his son Antoni hosted the teenage piano prodigy Fryderyk Chopin for a summer holiday in 1827. There is no doubt that Chopin performed there and this musical legacy was resumed in 1974 when the Society of the Friends of Sopot (Towarzystwo Przyjaciół Sopotu) began hosting Chamber Music performances every Thursday evening, a program which has continued to this day without a break. The manor house also serves as a versatile gallery and cultural centre, with exhibitions changing on a regular basis and ranging from paintings to sculpture, photography and ceramics as well as playing host to workshops and festivals. Check their website for what's on! It also houses the Młody Byron cafe.
