Tyniec Abbey Krakow, Poland

Krakow's Tyniec Abbey

   Tyniec Abbey is an ancient Benedictine Abbey near Krakow, spectacularly set on the riverbank and set approximately twelve kilometers from the Wawel Royal Castle. The fortified Tyniec Abbey brings a history of one thousand years, which were very dynamic and full of interesting events.

   Set on a cliff and surrounded by green forests, the monastery complex was founded by the Polish ruler Prince Casimir I the Renovator in year 1044 and served to organize the access to the capital of the country through the valley along Wisla River. It has not only a monastery but also a three-aisle basilica.

   During the Middle Ages, the Benedictine monks who lived here used to educate the young royalty among the other work tasks they had. The monastery was burnt down during the 12th century by the Mongols, then in the 17th century by the Swedes and a century later by the Russians. Actually very little is kept today by the original architecture of the monastery, as it was replaced by some Gothic structures, Renaissance and later Baroque elements. It should be known that the abbey and the Tyniec town inspired one of the greatest writers in Poland, which includes Josef Ignacy and Henryk Sienkiewich, who was also a Nobel Prize winner. Here are also filmed some of the scenes from Schindler's List movie.

   The town used to have a flourishing knitting industry known for its woolen round caps; two forests; remnants of an old town and St. John spring where one can rent a kayak. Today, it is a peaceful town, where life runs slowly and pleasantly.

   The Tyniec Abbey features a guest house which is full of modern conveniences and available services. Its church is used for the organization of classical music concerts and plenty of summer organ recitals. In addition to that there is a cafe onsite, as well as a shop where the visitor can purchase delicious food products produced by the Benedictine monks like honey and many types of cheeses, various kinds of tea, beer and excellent wine.

   The town of Tyniec, as well as the Tyniec Abbey itself could be reached by car crossing the Debnicki Most, by bus number 112 and tram numbers 18, 19 and also 22, as well as by walking or biking through the bicycle lane from the Wavel Castle. In the summer there is a boat that goes from the Most Grunwaldizki to the Tyniec town. The boat trip is almost an hour long.

   The area around the abbey is especially popular during the weekends if people want to go out of Krakow, as it is close and yet perfect for leisure holidaying with friends and family. It is very useful to hire a guide who will tell the legends of the place and the monastery.
