Dear Sir/Madam

A regular bus service provides convenient transportation to the center of Cracow. It is  also very close to the A4  motorway  and the airport KRK in Balice.

Living within our community means conforming to the existing order and time-honoured rules. We would like you to read the following rules and respect them while staying at the Abbey:

  • Please keep silence in the Guest House, especially in the corridors. It is indispensable for intensifying the inner life of the spirit and spending retreat time fruitfully. Be careful not to disturb the silence of others. Conversations should be held in the rooms or in places designed for this particular purpose.
  • The Reception Desk is open from 6 am until 9.30 pm. You should go there if you have a problem, need information, etc. The Guest House Prefect will help you if there is any exigency and the Reception has already closed.
  • If you wish to speak to one of the Fathers, please schedule an appointment through the Guest House Prefect.
  • You should leave your room before 11.30 am.

  • As a Guest of the Abbey you will be asked to choose from among the three available room standards. Should your choice be limited due to lack of free rooms, you will be informed immediately.
  • Payment must be made at the Reception Desk the moment you collect the keys to your room. Credit cards are accepted.


Dear Guest,

It is a great pleasure to welcome you to our Abbey. We would like you to feel completely at home here and spend your time fruitfully. The Guest House is a part of the monastery – the home of the monks who pray and work here. We invite you to enter this sacred space and experience the pervasive Spirit. It was almost 1000 years ago when people set out on their personal quest for God in this place. If you wish to, you can join the monks in their work and in their prayers. You can also speak individually to the Fathers. We hope you will find here the blessing of a true peace.
