John Paul II route

Krakow is the city that remembers almost all stages of the life of Karol Wojtyła. He was a student here, an amatour actor, then a young priest celebrating his first holy Masses, the bishop and Metropolite of Cracow and eventually the Pope John Paul II.


Our tour starts at the place which is very special to all Polish people - the Palace of Cracow Bishops (3 Franciszkanska Street). It is here that he lived as an archbishop of Krakow and stayed each time he visited Krakow as the Pope. It is here that he prayed together with thousands of young people, standing at the window above the main entrance - today commonly called "The Papal Window". Nearby there is St Francis of Assisi Basilica, in which Karol Wojtyła ofter prayed and had his favourite bench. We also visit Major Seminary of Krakow Archdioces, The Dean's House in Kanonicza Street, where he lived as a bishop between 1957-67 and where there is now a museum housing many memorabilia connected with John Paul II. The tour also includes: the Cathedral on Wawel Hill, St Florian's Church, St Mary's Basilica, the Church of St. Michael the Archangel and St. Stanislaus - because all the churches, one way or the other, relate to The Pope.
