Zelazowa Wola. Manor house from the early nineteenth century, where Frederic Chopin was born.
His family lived permanently in the left side of the mansion, the remaining part of the building was occupied by a family of Count Skarbek – in which Chopin’s parents worked. Probably the living conditions were very heavy.
In the Chopin family rooms was not even wood floors, just a hard earthen floor.
The owner of the property had so lavish lifestyle that soon gave up all his belongings and fled from creditors to Paris, leaving his wife with children in Poland.
Concerned about the future, Chopin family moved to Warsaw.
Manor house in Zelazowa Wola slowly deteriorated and for over 100 years in chambers pickled cabbage, kept pigs and chickens, until 1928, when the manor bought Chopin Committee and adapted inside a museum of the composer.
Today’s reconstruction of the house and the surrounding manor is a vision and imagination on the Polish manor house of the nineteenth century.
