Full description
Pope John Paul II, one of the most significant men in Poland’s history, was born in the small, charming town of Wadowice. Enjoy a 5-hour trip to this modest place where he spent his childhood. This is a trip worth taking not only for those who loved John Paul II, but for anyone who would like to know more about the background of Karol Wojtyla. You’ll discover the story of an average, shy boy who became the head of the Vatican and led Catholics worldwide. During the tour, conducted by a professional guide, you’ll see the church where he was baptized, his family house, and a museum devoted to his life. You’ll also see many other places important both in his life and in the history of Poland during the difficult years of the Communist regime.
