The Abbot's palace is a spectacular building, whose splendour reflects the wealth brought into the region from the Gdansk Watershed, and the Mills built along the Oliwa Stream. The 'palace' looks more like a house for royalty than for the Cistercian Monks who dwelt here for centuries; but the nearby Cathedral and other religous artefacts testify to their presence. Today the Abbot's Palace is the home of a modern Art Museum and displays the best work from the region, as well as some pieces by well-known foreign painters... Like Picasso! There is also a separate wing where emerging artists from all across Pomerania can exhibit their latest wares.
