From late May to mid-June he took first foreign trip to Vienna, under the care of his father, who previously travelled to Austria.In October 1829 he left the country to study abroad.

Soon after his arrival to Geneva, in the beginning of November, 1829, he also met Henry Reeve, the son of a doctor, who at the time was in Switzerland for philosophical and literary studies.

The young Englishman, noble and extremely talented in composing excessive romantic poetry, greatly inspired Zygmunt Krasiński.

Krasiński's Agaj-Han (1834) is also well known in Poland.

It is a historical-poetic novel, though unlike the historical novels which were popular in Poland, such as those of Walter Scott.

Krasiński's writings from the 1830s are full of frenetic plots, strongly influenced by gothic fiction and Dante Alighieri.

As the poet's most famous works show, he is most interested in the extreme face of human existence such as hate, desperation or solitude.

His meeting and in-depth conversation with Mickiewicz, who dazzled him to the extent of his knowledge, proved to be vital in creating and shaping Krasiński's literary techniques, however, he was sociopolitically more conservative than the other poets. The blossoming friendship with Mickiewicz undoubtedly accelerated the intellectual mind of the young poet.

From August 14 to September 1 of 1830 they travelled together to the High Alps; Krasiński described this event in his diary and highlighted the trip in a letter to his father dating from September 5, 1830.

His drama, Nie-boska Komedia (The Un-Divine Comedy, 1833), portrays the tragedy of an old-world aristocracy defeated by a new order of communism and democracy, and is a poetic prophecy of class conflict and of Russia's October Revolution (see also Okopy Świętej Trójcy).

The work was paraphrased and expanded by Edward Robert, Lord Lytton, as "Orval, the Fool of Time" (1869).

They soon became close friends and often wrote letters in which they stated and extensively highlighted their love for classical and romantic literature and prose.
