What You Can Expect
You’ll find Bonerowski Palace in a UNESCO World Heritage-listed building in the centrally-located Market Square. Step inside and marvel at the architecture, including Europe’s longest chandelier–reaching 70 feet (22 meters). From the palace windows, you’ll gaze over Market Square and see St Mary’s Basilica, Cloth Hall (Sukiennice), St Wojciech Church and the statue of the renowned Polish poet Adam Mickiewicz (who was also Chopin’s friend).
For your one-hour concert, you’ll head into Renaissance Hall and be enthralled as award-winning young pianists perform Chopin’s most famous piano pieces. Chopin’s music–with many nocturnes, mazurkas and polonaises (based on Polish dance)–is marked by a feeling of longing for his homeland, which was in political upheaval during his lifetime. A musical prodigy, Chopin left Poland to work in France at age 20, and remained there until his death at age 39.
Be transported into the realm of Chopin as you listen to the piano concert and take in the atmosphere of the lovely surroundings.
After the concert, you can choose to visit the palace's restaurant, bar or outdoor terrace (own expense), or make your way to your next destination from this central location.
Do not miss the opportunity to listen to Chopin live!!!! Wonderful recital, takes your breath away. intimate atmosphere and friendly staff. flawless pianno playing performance for an hour, would definately go again on our next trip to Krakow!!
THOUGH THE CONCERT WAS CHANGED FROM TH BONEROWSKI PALACE, THE CONCERT WAS SUPERB. THE PIANO PLAYER WAS JUST WONDERFUL
Friendly chaperone but the acoustics were not that great due to the temporary hall of the performance. Also, room was very humid due to unseasonable weather.
Lovely Evening! We really enjoyed the music and the salon was very elegant. We would recommend if you like Chopin.
Fantastic experience for next to no cost - not to be missed
This was a wonderful evening listening to the young pianist play some of our most favourite of the great man's work.
Great piano concert. Very enjoyable evening despite the moving of the venue to a different location. The piano player was outstanding as was Chopin
Beautiful music played by a master!! Although not at the palace due to needing quiet tompkay and lusten, this was a really good toyr/ journey! Fastest hour, it flew by ! Definitely recommend goingbto a chopin revital if the opportunity arises
