Composers / Fryderyk Chopin / Routes
The last day Fryderyk Chopin spent in Warsaw was 2 November 1830. He boarded the mail coach heading for Kalisz at the Wola Tollhouse on the evening of that day and finally alighted in Paris a few months later, having travelled via Dresden, Prague and Vienna. He was never to return to Poland.
Chopin first handed his baggage to the postman at the Saxon Post Office on ul. Krakowskie Przedmieście on that memorable afternoon of 2 November. After that, he took a hansom cab to the outskirts of the city with a group of friends, so that they could say their final farewells while waiting for the mail coach.
