Chopin’s Poland: A Guidebook to Places Associated with the Composer Marita Alban Juarez and Ewa Slawinska-Dahlig
translated by John Comber
The Fryderyk Chopin Institute, September 2008

Described here are the places where Chopin lived, stayed on his summer holidays or visited in passing. Each of the chapters – devoted to the regions of Mazovia, Wielkopolska, Malopolska, etc. – relates the circumstances surrounding the composer's stay and describes the history and the current state of the location (building).

Most amply discussed are the parts of Warsaw connected with Chopin. The identification of numerous buildings has made it possible to outline the routes of daily walks or “Chopin trails.”

The guidebook contains reproductions of almost fifty historical illustrations from the first half of the nineteenth century, three maps and around one hundred photographs taken specially for this publication.
