Here you can find: the Divine Mercy Sanctuary and the "Have No Fear!" John Paul II Centre - a centre in Kraków dedicated to the life and work of Pope John Paul II, which also houses his relic: an ampoule with his blood. On the way to Wadowice we will visit the Sanctuary in Kalwaria Zebrzydowska, included on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1999. In Wadowice - "the place where it all began" as the Pope referred to his hometown in 1999 during his visit here, we will see the places dearest to Karol Wojtyla during his childhood and adolescence, including the parish church where he was baptised and the house where he was born, which is now a museum. Our journey to and from Wadowice also gives you a chance to view the peaks of the Pope's beloved Beskidy mountain range where he used to hike. We will end our tour at the famous "papal window", in which John Paul II used to appear to talk and sing with the youth during all his visits, and where thousands of people were praying, holding candles, in his last days.
