We will be inspired by his life as we pray at the church where he was baptized and explore the Museum of St John Paul and his house. We continue to Kalwaria Zebrzydowska, to visit a monastery, a popular pilgrimage place for Pope John Paul II as youth and end our day with holistic view of the saint’s life.

Later we will explore the Market Square and visit St Mary’s Cathedral where you may pray before the extraordinary Wit Stwosz altar and see the Coronation Chapel (Wawel Cathedral) and the Royal Chambers (Wawel Castle) where a superb collection of Arras tapestries is on view.
