Frederyk Chopin Monument, Royal Baths Park, Warsaw

Warsaw, Poland view map

The Baths Park, or Royal Baths (Polish: Park Łazienkowski, or Łazienki Królewskie) is the largest park in Warsaw, Poland, occupying 76 hectares of the city center. The park-and-palace complex lies in Warsaw's Downtown (Śródmieście), on Ujazdów Avenue (Aleje Ujazdowskie) on the "Royal Route" linking the Royal Castle with Wilanów palace to the south. North of the Baths Park (Park Łazienkowski), on the other side of Agrykola Street, stands Ujazdów Castle.

The Chopin Monument is by a small pond in the rose garden of Lazienki Park. It was unveiled in 1926 after fifty years of negotiation between many committees and associations. When Chopin’s music became illegal after the outbreak of World War II, this monument was torn down and had to be reconstructed after the War. During the summer time, there are free open air concerts which are held here every Sunday attracting crowds. This is the place where pianists give concerts to the park audience.
