Place

The concert hall is a gallery dedicated to F. Chopin who was one of the greatest composers of all time. The venue is in an old historical tenement house called “Dębinskim” or “Under Barrel”. The house was built in the 15 century as an one-storeyed building and it was restructured thoroughly in the middle of the 16th century.After that the house became  the property of a Royal Hunter named Kaspar Dębinski who worked for the Royal Family in the Wawel Castle.He ordered to add  the second floor and  then  the house’s facade was decorated with paintings presenting different kinds of weapons. At present you can see extraordinary the 19th century staircase with its original richly ornamented railing made of iron leading to the concert hall.
