It is one of the biggest events during the summer season in Warsaw. And it is free.
A real magical event. Every Sunday, by the statue of Chopin in the Royal Łazienki, a piano appears and at noon a recital starts.
The 59th edition of Chopin Concerts has just started.
In the past we could only listen to the concerts when sitting on the benches. However, the moment sitting on the grass in the Royal Łazienki was allowed the real magic began. There are crowds – the Varsovians, tourists, the younger and older generation. They all sit on their blankets by the statue and listen.
Such situation we could observe once in Chicago. In the Millenium Park, in a beautiful shell designed by Frank Gehry, every summer takes place an outdoor event with stars ranging from the musicians from the Chicago Philharmonic to Lady Gaga. Admission is free and people come with picnic baskets, wine to listen to music. Perfect! Now we can enjoy the similar situation in our city. The Polish romantic spirit feels satisfied.
Concerts take place every Sunday, at noon and 4 PM until the end of September.
