The application was created in honour of the Kolberg Year 2014. It allows you to get acquainted with the places related to the private and professional life of this exceptional ethnographer and folklorist.
Municipal routes of Warsaw, Poznań and Cracow allow you to learn many details of Kolberg’s life. They include information about the people he met, those he worked with and those he exchanged letters with, at the beginning just as a musician and composer, but later also as a field researcher, documentalist and the author of ‘The People’.
Regional routes retrace the paths of Kolberg’s field research. Following his steps you will visit many places which are important for the history of Poland. In addition, the guide consists of passages from Kolberg’s materials, often, illustrated by drawings from Kolberg’s day. The subsequent parts of the guide are accompanied by music tracks of folk musicians taken from the archive of Polskie Radio and the Institute of Art of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
