The Post-Cisterian Monastery Complex in Rudy Raciborskie

The Cistercians were brought to Poland in the middle of the 12th century. One of the first places they chose was Jędrzejów in Lesser Poland. And from there they ended up in the Ruda River valley. In 1252, they started building monastic buildings.

At the beginning of the 19th century, the monastery was taken over by the Prussian state, and later it was taken over by the Hohenlohe-Waldenburg-Schillingfürst family. They transformed the palace and planned the park.

Currently, the monastery and palace complex consists of a basilica, medieval monastery buildings, and a baroque palace.
