In the Footsteps of John Paul II Tour leads along the route which is situated south of Krakow at the foot of Carpathians. This route is important not only for believers but also for all who want to understand history of life of this unusual man and environment in which he was growing to become pope. But in the same time it is also story about Poland, culture and spirit of Polish and about beauty of its southern part.
We start tour from the place chosen by You in or near Krakow. We will stop for the moment by the house near the Vistula river in Krakow to where he and his father moved when Karol Wojtyla was 18 years old. Then we will drive 50 km south to Wadowice where he was born and lived that first 18 years. There is House-Museum of John Paul II with plenty of his personal belongings and church where he was baptised.
10 km from there we will stop in Kalwaria Zebrzydowska where beautifully situated monastery important all life for Wojtyla is situated between hills and woods. This monastery is inscribed on UNESCO heritage list due to its beauty, importance and mysteries of Christ's Passion that are played there by amateurs every year in the Holy Week for thousands of visitors.
At the end of our visit we will see old and modern part of Sanctuary of Divine Mercy consecrated by John Paul II in 2002 where world famous image of Merciful Jesus and tomb of St Faustina are situated. We may finish in the centre of Krakow by famous Papal's Window in Archbishop Palace where he lived 14 years before being pope and used to be accomodated during his pilgrimages to Poland.
