Full description
Depart from Krakow and cycle along a green, quiet, and peaceful cycling route towards The Benedictine Abbey in Tyniec.

On the ride, pass by the flooded Zakrzówek quarry with its crystal clear water and rocky walls reminiscent of the Dalmatian landscape. Nearby, in the Twardowski Rocks Nature Reserve, take in the views over Krakow at the observation deck. As you continue on, see the Nazi Castle built by the Germans during WW2 for the Luftwaffe pilots and the SS members.

When you reach the abbey, marvel at its magical and extremely picturesque setting. Discover its history as the oldest monastery in Poland and one of the oldest in all Eastern Europe with foundations dating back almost 1000 years. Learn about the traditional goods produced by the monks known as Produkty Benedyktyńskie, all prepared using traditional, centuries-old recipes.
