  • On the territory of the monastery during the holiday season there are 3 (three) Christmas natiopies. The most spectacular-the giant in the main navo. Then, however, interesting moving-although not so great-with the movable figures of people deserved for the Church of Poland. The latter is alive with a donkey and alpacas-tiny and modest but pleases children. The object itself-the monastery also very proved and interesting.
