Krakow – When you’re short of time… The Royal Route
Price: from 30€ (per group)
Are you fascinated with life of Karol Wojtyla? Visit the places that Polish pope was so much connected with while studying and serving as a priest and bishop in Krakow.
We invite you on a unique journey through time during which you will visit particularly close to John Paul II places in Krakow. The Wawel Cathedral, the Franciscan Church and Collegium Maius are just some of the points of this tour. Following in the footsteps of John Paul II you will become familiar with his youth, the time of his studies and his ministry of the seminary until the moment he was elected the Head of the Catholic Church. Next we will drive to the Sanctuary of the Divine Mercy in Łagiewniki where – on August 17th 2002 – he entrusted the plight of mankind to the Divine Mercy. At the end we will drop in to Nowa Huta (New Steelwork). This district was built during the communist era serving the enormous metallurgical complex created by Stalin’s decree. Karol Wojtyla supported workers of the still mill in their efforts to build a church in the district. And they succeeded. Nowadays you can admire “Ark of the Lord”. This is a very unusual church with an interesting architectural design and interior. The testimony of faith and perseverance of thousands of workers.
