While in Poland don't miss your chance to visit Wadowice - childhood home of John Paul ll. Travel through the stunning Beskidy mountain range, pay homage to the Sanctuary of Divine Mercy and visit the Sanctuary in Kalwaria Zebrzydowska on this intriguing tour from Krakow.
Our tour begins with a visit to Lagiewniki, which is connected with the cult of the Divine Mercy, the grave of St. Faustina Kowalska, who was canonized as the first saint of the Third Millennium by John Paul II and St. John Paul II. Here you can find: the Divine Mercy Sanctuary and the “Have No Fear!” John Paul II Centre – a centre in Kraków dedicated to the life and work of Pope John Paul II, which also houses his relic: an ampoule with his blood. On the way to Wadowice – "the place where it all began" – we will visit the Sanctuary in Kalwaria Zebrzydowska, included on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1999. In Wadowice, childhood hometown of John Paul ll, previously the Krakow archbishop Karol Wojtyla, we will visit the parish church where John Paul II was baptized and the house where he was born, which is now a museum. We will end our tour at the famous "papal window", in which John Paul II used to appear to talk and sing with the youth during all his visits, and where thousands of people were praying, holding candles, in his last days.
