The Romantic composer Frederic Chopin, a Pole by birth, requested that, upon his death, his heart be removed and buried in Poland, with the rest of his earthly remains to be buried in France.

To this day, then, his heart is interred at Holy Cross Church (Kosciol Swietego Krzyza) in Warsaw.

Our family, during our summer trip to Poland, had a chance to visit this site.
