    Statue of Chopin
    Every summer Sunday there is a grand piano next to the statue. Although buried in Paris, his heart was returned to Warsaw (smuggled back by his sister as Warsaw was occupied by Russia and he could not return home )
    Statue was only completed in 1926 as Russians forbid it. It was destroyed by Nazis during WWII and rebuilt
