Lovely Peaceful Place
Apr 2018 • Family
The monastery, and adjoining chapel, is about 2 miles walk/drive from Prudnik. It is set on a hill and is largely surrounded by forest. There is also a tower nearby from which there are great views over Prudnik and the surrounding areas.

There is lots of outdoor seating and 2 caves with religious artefacts. We actually visited twice, on Easter Sunday and a couple of days later. On both occasions there were services going on in the chapel and although on the Sunday the place was packed it was still very quiet and peaceful

Worth a visit if you're in the area.

Small monastery
Aug 2014 • Solo
It's really small monastery, build in nineteenth century, hidden in the forests south to the town of Prudnik. Narrow lanes lead to the place, but also marked trails alow you to reach the monastery. There's a few associated sites around, where monks are trying to make it as appealing to tourists, as possible. There's also a viewing tower on nearby hill, but this is owned by the forest office. In the monastery itself, there's obviously a church, but the most important place is the room, where in 1954/1955 Polish communnist government imprisoned a head of Polish catholic church, cardinal Józef Wyszyński, and two other people working for the church. Today, the former place of detention serves as a little museum, where all the furniture has been kept as back in the fifties. There's no set fee for visiting the place, but the donations are welcomed. There's always some young friars at hand to come with stories about the monastery and the cardinal Wyszyński.
