Full description
Your journey begins in Kalwaria Zebrzydowska, where you will visit one of the most important destinations for Polish pilgrims – the St. Bernard Sanctuary. This is the sight of the only Way of the Cross in the world to be featured on the UNESCO world heritage list. John Paul II visited this place twice as a pope: in 1979 and 2002. Afterward, you will travel to Wadowice – the hometown of Karol Wojtyla. There you will be able to see his family home (currently a museum) and visit the local basilica. During your return journey, you will visit the last sight of the tour – the Divine Mercy Sanctuary in Krakow’s Lagiewniki, which was also a very important site for John Paul II. In 1968 he put the chapel on the list of Krakow’s sanctuaries, and later he beatified and sanctified sister Faustyna Kowalska, who once resided there and is now the patron of the place and is the herald of Divine Mercy. At the end of the trip, you will be taken back to your hotel or any chosen location within Krakow.
