Zelazowa Wola

I'm definitely in a classical music mood today, so my Place of the Day happens to mirror my mood.  I have to say, though, that I don't recall this particular location ever coming up in Music History class.

Chopin's Birthplace - Zelazowa Wola, Poland

This is the place where Chopin grew up for the first 20 years of his life, before he left for Paris and fame.  In the summer you can find numerous outdoor piano concerts, and if you're lucky hear them in the same parlor where he played.  Don't forget to track down and take a photo of the piano he played on during the last two years of his life!
