Chopin Benches

Chopin bench on Krakowskie Przedmieście

The good city of Warsaw has devised one more way to bring Chopin to the people, and that’s by way of fifteen musical benches that have been placed at key sites connected with his life. Made of cast iron and polished black stone these benches, designed by Professor Jerzy Porębski, feature a button which when pressed have been designed to unleash a thirty second torrent of Chopin. They also come equipped with a route map as well as brief explanations in Polish and English as to the site’s relevance to Chopin. However, that’s not all. These benches see Chopin go techno: each one comes inscribed with a special code – take a pic on your phone, then send it to the instructed number and you’ll be rewarded to free access to Chopin melodies, facts, figures and photographs.
