We stayed 5 days in Cracow and stumbled on the possibility to visit this abbey by bicycle. This seemed a nice daytrip, allowing us to evade the hordes of tourists in the Old Town. In the end we had a problem renting bicycles and decided...More
The Abbey is very interesting. The church is very baroque so it is a bit out of touch with the exterior but still beautiful. Amazing is the well, well worth a visit. Do not miss the shop where you can buy a lot of local...More
The Benedictine Abbey of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul in Tyniec was founded by the Polish king, Casimir I, the Restorer, in 1044. Benedictine monks look to Benedict of Nursia (b. 480, d. 547) as their father and founder. He dedicated himself to the...More
I had been three times to the abbey, all with different means of transportation. Once by bus, once by bicycle and once on foot. The latter two options should be opted if you have time as it is a nice way to see the area....More
The accommodation wing has been recently upgraded from the medieval style of the Abbey. Rooms are small but well appointed (no TV - after all its an abbey) with eveything needed. Lifts to all floorsand easy to get around. The dining room/restaurant provided the most...More
I went by bike from Krakau center, which is a very nice ride along the river. Most of the 11 km to there and the 11 back have good cycling ways, both sides of the river. The abbey I found a bit disappointing, but anyhow...More
I took the small boat to the Abbey in Sept. 2018. Boat left pier at 2:30pm. Ride is about 90 mins. long. The weather was quite warm and there was no breeze. The boat moves very very slowly so no breeze was generated. There is...More
There are a number of things to do and reasons to visit:
- People walk or bike to the Abbey, for the nice view, shop and great little restaurant with the terrace
- Possibly in combination with attending mass or any of the religious services....More
A short (25 mins or so) trip by public transport away from the hustle, bustle (and tourists!) of Krakow, this Abbey will delight, albeit there is not a great deal to see - but it is nevertheless well worth the visit. It is beautifully situated...More

There definitely is a cafe and restaurant. As a matter of fact, there is a separate restaurant (when you enter through the gate), as well as a gift shop with above it the cafe (with terrace looking out over the river - a very pretty place!). I don't know the opening hours, but remember they were normal hours you would expect, say from 9 to 5 or 6 (gift shop), I think the same for the cafe. The restaurant may or may not be open for lunch, but is for dinner. It is a wonderful place to stay the night too, by the way. Hope this helps.
