Works in progress
For our community it is both a privilege and a duty to serve as guardian of the heritage of the Abbey of Tyniec. It is not an easy task: despite regular conservation and renovation work, the upkeep of a historical monument of such value requires on-going work and significant finance.
Currently several parts of the monastery are in need of renovation:
- The Romanesque basements of the abbey, built in the 11th and 12th centuries, will house the first Polish museum of the history of monasteries in Poland. It is one of the few places in Poland where the Romanesque structure has remained largely entact to our time.
- The historical wall around the abbey, which dates back to the time of the Bar Confederation.
- The road to the abbey.
- The leaking roof of the Old Library wing.

The power of endurance
The reconstruction of the abbey began in 1947. With the support and generosity of many people we were able to reconstruct parts of the monastery in the recent past. Today we want to take care of what is beneath the abbey and make the oldest part of the structure accessible to everyone.
