September 22–October 3, 2018
Join Peter and Kathleen van de Graaff and fellow classical music lovers and celebrate the life of Frederic Chopin! On this eleven day pursuit you’ll walk in Chopin’s footsteps and relive his extraordinary life.
You’ll visit the very places where Frederic lived, loved and worked: the family home where Frederic was born, the village church where he was baptized and the Frederic Chopin University of Music in Warsaw. Discover Poland’s stunning cultural capital, Krakow. Visit the cathedral where the kings of this ancient land are buried, stroll the campus of the University of Copernicus and marvel at one of Europe’s largest medieval squares.
You’ll attend several glorious classical concerts in Warsaw, Krakow, and Prague highlighting the works of Chopin, Mozart, Dvořák, Smetana and Beethoven. And free time to further explore the breathtaking city of Krakow and wander around Prague at your own pace. Your musical quest culminates in the Czech Republic where you’ll relive the lives and times of Smetana, Mozart and Dvořák.
These are just a few of the highlights! Throughout the journey you’ll experience Earthbound Expeditions’ one-of-a-kind local experiences.
