Villa Decius in Krakow, a view from the 19th century

Villa Decius, tradition of refinement. 

Krakow’s Villa Decius (Willa Deciusza), the Renaissance mansion built around 1530 for a powerful secretary of King Sigismund I the Old, is one of Poland’s best palatial suburban residences. Its first owner was one of the leading lights of the 16th-century Polish ‘Golden Age’ and his home a glowing lighthouse. 

In the 19th century Princess Czartoryska, arts patron and a famed pianist, restored the palace to prominence. Now it shines again after a thorough renovation as Krakow’s home to the European Academy, inviting intellectuals from across the continent. 

The adjacent old Romanticist park boasts open-air musical events and a modern sculpture gallery. And the period interiors of the Decius Villa shelter also a modern Conference Center.
