Take a tour of Villa Decius

Enjoy guided and individual tours of the Villa Decius.
You are welcome to visit Villa Decius with a guide and individually.

Villa Decius, built in 1535 near Krakow in Wola Justowska, is one of the most beautiful and complete examples of a Renaissance suburban residence. From the 16th to the 19th century it was home to distinguished families, such as the Decius family, who were the first owners, followed by the Lubomirski family, the Sanguszko family, the Kuczkowski counts and the Czartoryski principality, among others. The exhibition of paintings from the District Museum in Nowy Sącz and furniture from the National Museum in Krakow in the interiors of Villa Decius is a substitute for the magnificent furnishings that its former owners surely ordered for their estate. Four prints by Krzysztof Skórczewski are on display in the Main Hall of Villa Decius: "View from the Window" (1991), "Villa Decius" (2008), "Chinese Gate" (2016) and "New Empire" (2021). On the first floor of the Villa, paintings by the Cracow artist Beata Zuba are presented. An architectural curiosity of the Villa is the loggia equipped with unusually beautiful oriental tiles, brought to the Villa in the 19th century by Marcelina Czartoryska.
