Today, the Kazimierz Palace houses the Rector’s Office of the University of Warsaw. The palace is located on the Royal Route, but somewhat hidden at the back of the university campus. That is why it is often overlooked. We recommend entering the campus area of the university and taking a look around. You will certainly be in good company there.
This is a touristic overview of the palace. For a detailed description, please click the button below.

How to get
The palace was built by King Sigismund III. Wasa in the first half of the 17th century. The main entrance is accessible from the King’s Walk. To the east of the palace, Kazimierz Park stretches along the steep slope of the Vistula embankment. The palace was destroyed during the Polish-Swedish War of 1655-1660 and immediately rebuilt. In the years 1817 – 1830 it received its now recognisable classicist form. In 1824 the Rectorate of the University of Warsaw moved in here.
You can enter the building during the working hours of the Rectorate and the University administration. There is no museum or other exhibition space here. So just pretend you’re an Erasmus student on a quest 🙂
The building was equipped with a lift in 2007 and can be used by persons with reduced mobility.
