Warsaw is the capital of Poland and was completely destroyed during World War II. Almost every building today dates to the postwar era with very little remains of the old structures in the restored Old Town. Nearly every European architectural style can be found in Warsaw from gothic to renaissance to baroque and neoclassical.
In Warsaw, the life and work of Frederic Chopin are much celebrated. You will find Chopin Benches around the city. There are a total of 15 musical benches placed in key sites that are significant to Chopin’s life. Upon pressing the button on the bench, a 30-second piece of Chopin music will be played.
