Děčín and Thun-Hohenstein family
Chopin travels with parents from Karlsbad to Decin. They stop at count Franz Anton and Theresie Thun-Hohenstein family, parents of Ann, Friedrich and Leo, Paris students of Chopin. Fryderyk’s parents spent in Decin only one day and they started their travel back to Warsaw. Chopin stayed longer there. He wrote in the notebook of two daughters of Thun - Anna and Józefina called Juża – Waltz in A-flat major Op. 34 No. 1 with dedication to the other daughter. 
Count Franz Anton (1786-1873) and Theresie (1784-1844) Thun-Hohenstein had five children: Franz Anton (1809-1870), Friedrich (1810-1881), Leo Leopold (1811-1888), Anna Maria (1812-1885) and Josefina (1815-1895). Two youngest sons and the daughter Anna Maria attended Chopin lessons in Paris.  More information:
