Escape to the Polish Countryside

If you’re looking for a fantastic break from the city into the charming countryside outside Krakow, this tour is perfect. The country bike tour begins along the Vistula river on a smooth bike path and leads you through southern Poland’s picturesque countryside to Tyniec, a small town 12km west of Krakow, famous for its 11th century Benedictine abbey. Founded in 1044, the abbey played a crucial military role in Poland’s Christian restoration and the nation’s rebuilding.
