A full day trip to the western parts of Mazovia includes visits to the historic manor house in Żelazowa Wola, famous as the Frederick Chopin birthplace, the estate in Nieborow, the English – style park in Arkadia, a short stay in Łowicz for handicraft souvenirs and lunch in a local folk – inn.
The historic estates and manor houses located in the vicinity of Warsaw give a unique yet nostalgic insight into traditional country living of Polish nobility, from a modest manor house in Żelazowa Wola to a proper Baroque palace in Nieborów.
The western part of Mazovia is especially renowned for its unique folk culture centred in Łowicz, such as the paper cut-outs used for house decorating and distinctive patterns of the local costumes – the local museum and souvenir shops are the best opportunity to get a proper view on the subject!
The full tour itinerary can be organised in the spring-summer season due to the Nieborów and Arkadia museums openings (from the 1st of April until the end of October). Shops in Łowicz are closed on Sunday.
