University of Warsaw

The University of Warsaw is the largest university in Poland comprising three campuses, of which the main campus is located in the heart of Warsaw, adjacent to the famous Krakowskie Przedmieście street. It features several historic palaces, some of which date back to the 17th century, surrounded by beautiful sculptures and greenery. The Main Gate is also one of the highlights of the campus and entered in the register of monuments as part of the University of Warsaw complex in 1984. It features a crowned eagle surrounded with five golden stars, which is one of the University’s chief symbols. The gate’s niches hold sculptures of Athena and Urania, the first holding a helmet, the other a globe. And therefore, as you enter the main campus, you’d find yourselves under the protection of goddesses of wisdom and knowledge. With charming buildings and beautiful surroundings, the University of Warsaw has become one of the most pleasant and often visited locations for locals as well as tourists.
