The captivating report by Władysław Matlakowski (1851-1895),
an eminent Varsovian surgeon, of his scientific trip to Paris in 1876
is presented in a sharp-sighted way. His review of the activities
of medical university clinics were marked with some criticism.
His opinions about Claude Bernard (1813-1878), the first to use
physiological experiment and Ksawery Gałęzowski (1832-1907),
a well-known Polish oculist were auspicious. Matlakowski’s visit to
Prague to participate in the Second Congress of Czech Physicians
and Natural Historians in 1882 has been reported in great detail
along with his critical assessment of the medical clinics established
in this city. An account is also given of exhibitions, theatrical
spectacles, banquets and extraordinarily cordial reception of the
Polish participants by their colleagues from Prague.
