Interesting Slice of Religion and History
Aug 2019
This is a 700 year old monastery and church. Could not visit the monastery but the Church definitely had strong energy which cannot be said of most churches in the world. It has a certain unique atmosphere which is partly gothic and partly renaissance.

You need to speak Polish to visit here

I visited here with two Polish friends, which is just as well as you need to be able to speak Polish to get the most of your visit. This is a seminary, school and monastery. Most of the property, including the church, can only be seen via a guided tour in Polish, though there is a leaflet available in English. We had the tour, and my Polish friends translated key parts. The tour included seeing a copy of a medieval book that contains the first known written Polish (the original is in the Diocesan archives in Wroclaw). After the tour we were taken to a building where we could buy beer (using cash) made by Cistercian monks somewhere else in Poland. If you're interested in Polish religious history and architecture, and can speak Polish, or have a translator, then you'll find this place of interest.
