There are a number of things to do and reasons to visit:
- People walk or bike to the Abbey, for the nice view, shop and great little restaurant with the terrace

A short (25 mins or so) trip by public transport away from the hustle, bustle (and tourists!) of Krakow, this Abbey will delight, albeit there is not a great deal to see - but it is nevertheless well worth the visit. It is beautifully situated...More
