Decjusz Villa is situated in Wola Justowska – residential and one of most luxurious district of Krakow. Name of villa and district comes from Justus Decjusz the Elder – an Alsatian German humanist who worked in Poland and became influential person in Krakow.


This manor house was rebuilt around 1530 in the Renaissance style but its present shape comes from remodeling in early Baroque style for Stanislaw Lubomirski around 1620. The most impressive view of it is possible from the garden. Visitors can admire from here its three-storey arcaded loggia flanked by towers. Today this palace is owned by private foundation and serves mainly as an elegant conference centre.
