Welcome to Wadowice
The birthplace of one Karol Wojtyła (better known to the world as Pope John Paul II), Wadowice (vah-do-vee-tsah) has evolved into a popular pilgrimage destination in its own right. People come to walk the pretty cobblestones, pay their respects to the Wojtyła family home and, maybe most importantly, have a slice of the town’s legendary cream cake, kremówka. The former pope himself was a big fan.
The tourist office can provide all the information you need, including a free booklet titled Karol Wojtyła’s Foot Trail, which marks out the most important pope-related sights in town.
