“Ok for a Picture stop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

We stopped here on a group tour as part of a history tour which made it interesting. On your own you won't learn much but exploring the rest of the park down the stairs behind the monument is nice.

“Good Monument of a Great Artist”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

The Chopin monument is located in the Lazienki Park, the park is very nice for picnic or relaxing or walking.
I heard that there is a band playing on Sundays, but we were there during weekdays so could not attend that.
The monument is right near one of the entrance to the parka nd you can even see it from outside the park.
I think that the Polish governemnt could have done a better job in preserving such a great artist's monument. I think he was one of the greatest musicians of the world.

“Must See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

it's really worth it to go to the Lazienki Park to see it. The whole Park is an attraction, the silence there is inspiring.
The Chopin Monument ist very important for whole Poland, he was one of the best known Polish musicians in the world

“A rather ugly monument.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

I rarely think monuments can be ugly, but Chopin's monument in Łazienki park is an exception.
It's located too close to the main road, thus it is not as tranquil as the rest of the park.
As for the "art" of the monument - well, let's just say it's not for everyone.
I think a composer such as Chopin should've had a more decent monument.

“Summer Concerts”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

During the summer on the weekends they have classical music concerts at the base of the monument. worth checking out but get there early. it gets very crowded.
