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

I enjoyed the opportunity to not only visit the oldest monastery in Poland (nearly 1000 years), but to actually stay there for two nights. Having a guest house is something you might not expect at a monastery, but the Benedictines have provided this opportunity for...More

It's probably most famous monastery in Poland. Located on high banks of the river Wisła in a place called Tyniec, which used to be a village, now a district of Kraków. Access by a narrow road - one can be surprised how many cars can...More

A modern museum in an old abbey. Interesting tours guided by real Benedictine monks. The place is over 1000 years old. Only a 15-minute drive from the city center. Gotta do Tyniec if you're visiting Krakow.
