The setting was intimate and nicely decorated. A glass of white wine was a wonderful inclusion. The pianist enthralled the audience with about 90 mins of excellent renditions. Highly recommended especially if you have a love for piano recitals.

You should not miss this walk along the Vistula River, and especially see it at night. With the lighting of the castle. The only problem is that we requested the trip in Spanish and it was in Polish and English.

Enjoyable, relaxing cruise on the Vistula enjoying a glass of wine, commentary and lovely views.

This was a very enjoyable experience. The musician was extremely talented!

Just Wonderful. A wonderful way to spend an hour listening to Chopin.
