Warsaw Conservatory (Zamkowy Square)

The institution was formerly housed by a building located at the Zamkowy Square, between the royal Castle and the St. Anne’s Church. Nuns lived there for many years. Used as an armaments warehouse for a while, the building was then converted into the Warsaw Conservatory.

This venue was of special importance to Chopin: it was here that he studied and met Konstancja Gładkowska, his first great love. The girl took singing classes, Fryderyk accompanying her frequently.

Regrettably, the building can no longer be found on maps of Warsaw: it was pulled down in the 19th century. Today, the place offers a wonderful view of Warsaw’s Praga district.
