Our tour begins with a visit to Wadowice, "the place where it all began" - that is what the Pope said about his hometown in 1999, during his last visit to Poland. We will visit the places Karol Wojtyla held dearest in his childhood and youth, including the parish church where he was baptized, and the house where he was born, which is now a museum. Our trip to and back from Wadowice will also allow you to see the peaks of the Pope's favourite Beskidy Range. After returning to Kraków we will visit the Divine Mercy Sanctuary in Łagiewniki. In this growing centre of pilgrimage you can pay homage to the relics of St. Faustina Kowalska, canonized as the first saint of the Third Millennium by Pope John Paul II, and admire the impressive modern basilica, consecrated by the Pope in 2002. There you can also find the "Have No Fear!" John Paul II Centre - a centre in Kraków dedicated to the life and work of Pope John Paul II. The Centre is to serve the functions of the nation's votive offering for the pontificate of Karol Wojtyla. The Centre's name refers to the memorable words said by the Pope in 1978 during the inauguration of his pontificate: ‘Have no fear! Open wide the doors for Jesus Christ and His saving power.' The lower chapel of the sanctuary was houses a relic of St. John Paul II: an ampoule with blood, placed in the altar top. We will end our journey at the Archbishop's Palace - Karol Wojtyla's last place of residence before he went to the Vatican in 1978. There you can see 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.
