  • Krakow: Country Bike Tour to the Tyniec Abbey

    3. Krakow: Country Bike Tour to the Tyniec Abbey

    This country tour takes you along the Vistula river to Tyniec; a small town 12 kilometers west of Krakow, famous for its 11th-century Benedictine abbey. The abbey played a crucial military role in Poland's Christian restoration and the nation's rebuilding. Your tour will begin along the Vistula River, over a smooth bike path which will lead you through Southern Poland's picturesque countryside.

Upon arrival at Tyniec, you will have the chance to explore the ancient grounds, enjoy a snack, take photographs of the scenery, and visit the gift shop (which is full products prepared by local monks). The essence of the tour is a relaxed, scenic country ride, rather than the stop-start nature of a city tour. You will cover a total of 25 kilometers (15.5 miles), on a ride which lasts...

    A lovely afternoon activity riding outside Krakow through the countryside. Our guide was very informative and told us lots of stories and information about Krakow and the abbey. It did get quite dark during our ride back into the city which get a little bit unsafe for riding, even with the lights we had (although we were delayed due to stopping during a short thunderstorm, which can’t be helped). Overall an enjoyable experience away from the crowds of the Krakow old town!

We stay a week in Krakow. With 3 days of city pass you can easily optimize it. If you stay short, it will be difficult to organize the visits with the opening hours etc because with 12 tourist districts it takes time to travel

Our hotel was located outer city so access to public transport (team) was great. Enjoyed visiting all o the museum's though the synagogue was under renovation (closes) and so too was the town hall

This is a fabulous deal we used the tram and bus and visited many of the sights. Well worth a look. We will but again when we go back.

very easy to use and saved time trying to buy tickets
