During this tour you will visit all the most important places related to Saint John Paul II in Krakow for whom it was always the dearest among Polish cities.
We invite you to an unforgettable guided tour-pilgrimage in the footsteps of the Pope John Paul II in Krakow!
Kraków is a ‘papal city’ – the city of Saint John Paul II. Karol Wojtyła was born on 18th May 1920 in Wadowice – a small town located about 50 km from our city. In 1938 he arrived in Kraków together with his father. The will-be Pope was studying and working here. In 1946 he became a priest, then a great bishop and the Archbishop of Kraków. In 1978 he left Kraków for a memorable conclave to Rome…
The future Saint John Paul II lived in Kraków for forty years and always used to say about it ‘my Krakow’.
