A statue to Poland’s most famous composer, Fryderyk Chopin, was unveiled in 1926 in the Royal Łazienki Park. It was unfortunately destroyed during World War II but rebuilt and again placed in the park in 1958. Since 1959 the Fryderyk Chopin Society and the Stołeczna Estrada have organised concerts of Chopin music in the shadow of the statue and these concerts have featured many renowned performers over the decades. Concerts are held from mid-May to the end of September each year with performances taking place twice on a Sunday – at 12:00 and at 16:00. The opportunity to hear the music of this great composer at one of the city’s most beautiful spots is one of the most wonderful experiences in the city during the summer.
