I'm with you Heidrun. I like the pond reflection and the lines the stones make around the pond.

The history of this space begins in 1617. Then it approved a foundation governor of Krakow's John Magnus Teczynski for Camaldolese who a few years earlier settlements in the first hermitage in Bielany Polish Krakow. The main sponsor of the hermitage in Rytwiany was Tęczyński said John Magnus and his brother Gabriel Tęczyńskim, governor of Lublin. The foundation stone was laid on May 1, 1624, Bishop of Cracow Martin Szyszkowski. The construction of the church and monastic buildings including houses pustelniczymi lasted until 1637, when the Bishop of Krakow, Tomasz Oborský consecrate the church giving it the call of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The richness of its baroque interior rytwiańska temple owes one of the priors Wenantemu de Subiaco father, who is the author of the images in the church and the side chapels and the whole concept of iconography.

Camaldolese monks lived in Rytwiany 201 years. The Decree Tsar in 1819 the monastery was canceled. The last monks left the hermitage in 1825 going to the hermitage in Bielany. Deserted monastery came into the hands of the founders. Those trying to save him, brought the Franciscan friars, but this time soon came to appeal. In 1935,in pokamdeulskiego monastery was established parish.
