Sanniki - Fryderyk Chopin European Art Centre


Sanniki is a village in east-central Poland. It lies approximately 79 km west of Warsaw. There is a beautifully situated and renovated palace. The palace is concealed among splendid old trees in a extensive park and is surrounded by a white wall. This estate belonged to Aleksander Pruszak. Sanniki Palace acquired its present form in 1910, to a design by Władysław Marconi.
Władysław Marconi was a famous Warsaw architect who designed the beautiful Hotel Bristol in Warsaw (click to see) and a lot of palaces and tenement houses.
Into the front wall of the palace tower is a marble plaque with the following inscription: 'In this manor house Fryderyk Chopin stayed in 1828'. Fryderyk Chopin, the famous Polish composer, vacationed here in July and August 1828. In 1981 a Fryderyk Chopin Memorial Centre was created in the left wing of the palace. Currently is there the F. Chopin's European Art Centre.

  10. Beautiful photos and as I've said before I'd love to visit Poland. When I was a little girl I had two Polish girl friends, whose parents had immigrated to Canada. We were great friends but lost touch after high school graduation.
