Half-day In the footsteps of John Paul II Tour from Krakow

There are many places worldwide which were beloved by John Paul II. But among them there are three which can unquestionably be considered the most meaningful ones for him. His birth place – Wadowice – “where everything started” but also where“time was running, eternity was waiting”, Kalwaria Zebrzydowska with its splendid monastery and church, which JPII asked us tovisit “during his life and after his death” and the Sanctuary of Łagiewniki – connected strictly with his message to people about the Divine Mercy of God, which he found in the holy visions of Sister Faustina Kowalska.
