We will see the dearest places to Karol Wojtyla during his childhood and adolescence, including the parish church where he was baptised and the house where he was born. Our journey to and from Wadowice also gives you a chance to view the peaks of the Popes beloved Beskidy mountain range where he used to hike. On return to Cracow we stop at the Sanctuary of Divine Mercy in Lagiewniki. In this developing place of pilgrimage you can pay homage to the holy relics of St. Maria Faustyna Kowalska, who was canonised as the first saint of the Third Millennium by John Paul II, and admire the impressive modern basilica consecrated by the Pope in 2002. Then we travel to the foot of the Royal Castle to visit the Archdiocese Museum located in the most picturesque street of Cracow. In the museum you can see the flat where Karol Wojtyla lived while working as a lecturer of theology. Finally, we visit the Archbishop's Palace which is Wojtyla's last residence before leaving for the Vatican in 1978. There one can see the famous ''papal window'', where John Paul II used to show up to chat and chant with the youth of Cracow during all his visits and where thousands of people lit candles and prayed during his last days.
