|2010 marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Fryderyk Chopin! A 2010 Chopin calendar was being displayed at a bookstore window near the Old Town Square.||I went to the Czartoryski Museum. The last time I was in town, I couldn't get a chance to visit this Krakow's most famous museum.
I think this building could easily be missed. I passed without noticing it although I had checked the map to access it. Perhaps because it didn't look like a museum I had thought it would be.
There was the Chopin room upstairs where I found the Pleyel piano that Fryderyk Chopin played.
|And Chopin's death mask was on display also.|
|This is the Jagiellonian University, established in 1364, the second oldest university in Central Europe after the Charles University in Prague. Pope John Paul II graduated from it.||Nicolaus Copernicus is a graduate of the Jagiellonian University also, and at the front of the University building, there was a monument to him.|
