The Benedictine Abbey in Tyniec is a magical and extremely picturesque place. It was founded almost 1000 years ago, making it one of the oldest monasteries in Poland and one of the oldest in Eastern Europe.
Thanks to archeological excavations it is now known that the site was once settled by the Celts, who left many artifacts which can be seen in the Abbey Museum.
The Abbey is also known for the traditional goods produced by the monks – Produkty Benedyktyńskie. They are all prepared using traditional, centuries old recipes making them famous throughout all of the country and abroad.
On the tour, you will have the chance to taste some of the treats. During an arranged picnic you will have time to relax and taste, among others: kwas chlebowy (a drink which is sometimes referred to as the Coca-Cola of the middle ages), Krówka Prawdziwa (typical Eastern European candy made with milk and sugar), paluchy benedyktyńskie (type of local breadsticks), smalec (Polish dripping), oatmeal cookies. Or maybe you would like to try the Konfitura Niewiernych (Jam of the Unfaithful)?
You are going to see the flooded Zakrzówek quarry with its crystal clear water and rocky walls reminiscent of the Dalmatian landscape. Nearby, in the Twardowski Rocks Nature Reserve, you will visit the observation deck over Kraków. During the tour, you are also going to see the Nazi Castle built by the Germans during WWII for the pilots of the Luftwaffe and also for members of the SS. Its design is based on similar castles in the Alps.
The tour route leads you through green, quiet and peaceful terrains along the most popular biking route in this part of the country.
