Benedictine Abbey in Tyniec

ul. Benedyktyńska 37, Kraków


Karol Wojtyła enjoyed his visits to the abbey in Tyniec, where he started going in the 50s.

Here, he conducted spiritual retreats before his consecration of a bishop in 1958, he participated in the celebration of the 900th anniversary of the monastery in 1975, and visited the abbey unexpectedly in 2002 during his papal trip to Poland – for the last time, as it turned out.
