The Oskar Kolberg Guide The Oskar Kolberg Guide

In connection with the celebrations of 2014 as Oskar Kolberg Year, we have prepared a special multimedia application that will enable users to get to know the places associated with the life and work of this extraordinary ethnographer and folklorist.

The city routes through Warsaw, Poznań and Cracow will provide us with many facts from the biography of Oskar Kolberg and inform us about the people with whom he met, worked and corresponded as a musician and composer, and later as a field researcher, documentalist and publisher of his work Lud [The common folk].

The regional routes will show us the itineraries of Kolberg's travels in the field. Following in his footsteps, we will visit many important Polish historical sites and discover the material that he collected, often illustrated with period prints. Our journey will be accompanied by recordings of folk music from the archives of Polish Radio and the PAN Institute of Art.
