The heartbeat of the desert — symbolism and history

Tyniec Abbey / 21.5. 2015 - 31.3. 2016

What is the desert? Asking such a question in the 21st century may result in various associations. During the exhibition we will travel through times from biblical era through the time of Desert Fathers, when about 18 centuries ago the monasticism was born, up to the present day. The exhibition is combined with works of art seldom presented publicly thus it is also an exceptional opportunity to see exhibits usually hidden behind the walls of the monastery.  

Open daily:

May-September: 10.00-18.00

October-March: 10.00-16.00
