REJS DO TYŃCA | TRIP TO TYNIEC

Cruise length: 4.5 hours 
 
Tyniec is a historic village on the Vistula river, since 1973 a part of the Krakow municipality. The location is notable for its famous Benedictine Abbey founded by King Casimir the Restorer in 1044 and majestically perched on a white limestone ridge with a commanding view of the river. The monks have lived and worked here peacefully for nearly a millennium. In the Middle Ages the learned friars provided education to young royalty in addition to their other numerous labors. Little was left of the original 11th-century monastery as first it was replaced by Gothic structures, then by the 16th-century Renaissance buildings and finally given a Baroque facelift in the 17th century. Also the abbey's present Baroque church dates from the 17th century too.
 
Nowadays the Benedictines run a guest house with all the modern conveniences and the church itself is a popular venue for classical music concerts, notably the summer series of the organ recitals.
 
Rain or shine a half-day trip out to Tyniec is rewarding and is a surprisingly serene and charming setting just outside the heavily-touristed areas of Cracow. It’s the best place to hang out with amiable monks and snap scenic shots of Poland’s historic heartland.
