Quality Sign Land of the Horseshoe bat 2017

Cistercian Abbey in Szczyrzyc

For many years, endangered in Europe lesser horseshoe, Geoffroy’s and greater mouse-eared bats find excellent conditions at the loft space of the church and monastery in Szczyrzyc.

Thanks to the responsible management of the Abbey, this one of the most important bat roosts in Poland remains in excellent condition, and bats living in it, thrive.

The Laureate receives regular monitoring visits of the PTPP “pro Natura” bat researchers with commendable kindness and is open for the proposed improvements in bat habitats inside the roost.
