In 1827, during a trip in the company of Count Ksawery Zboi雟ki of Kowalewo, the main destination of which was Gda雟k, Chopin stopped in Kowalewo. Zboi雟ki then decided to show Fryderyk around the city of P這ck. They visited the castle, the cathedral with the royal chapel and sarcophagi, and all the major sights; before leaving, they also visited P這ck post office, at which Fryderyk was expecting to find a letter from his parents.
