Full description
The John Paul II Trail Tour will take you to the places which are particularly associated with Karol Wojtyla who could become pope. Krakow is a special place to learn about the life of Pope John Paul II as he lived in Krakow for more than 30 years prior. During his years in Krakow, he was first a student, then a priest, and finally as bishop of Krakow. In Krakow, he has also experienced the unimaginable cruelty of World War II and then communism. Your guide will be a history teacher and PhD student who will lead you throughout Krakow showing you the places that shaped Pope John Paul II and tell you about his life in Krakow. After meeting your guide visit the Jagiellonian University. Then continue to the Wawel Cathedral, where Karol Wojtyla sought spiritual guidance and confession and where he celebrated his first Mass. After, go to his apartment on Kanonicza Street, the Franciscan Church, and the Bishop’s Palace.

    Een jonge vriendelijke historicus wandelde met mij in het spoor van Johannes Paulus 2. dankzij zij konden we de kapel van het aartsbisschoppelijk paleis bekijken, wat normaal gezien niet kan bezocht worden.
