Why locals love it

A great trip outside the city center whether you walk or cycle,the path along the river is probably the best bet and most popular way of getting here, although there are also buses from the city center.

Why you should visit it

The oldest abbey in Poland, it is located on a cliff overlooking the Wisła River. A mixture of architectural styles the abbey was also used as a protective fortification during attacks. The abbey is steeped in mistery and worth a visit if you have time and need to get out of the city.

Special tip

Enjoy the Gregorian chants as well as the Benedictine products made and sold here.
