EVERY DAY EXCEPT: LAST TUESDAYS OF EVERY MONTH, 1ST AND 6TH JANUARY, EASTER SUNDAY, 1ST AND 11TH NOVEMBER, 24TH AND 25TH DECEMBER.
In this six hour long trip, we will explore Kalwaria Zebrzydowska and Wadowice, located 40 km and 55 km from Cracow respectively. Both places are related with Karol Wojtyła - Holy Father John Paul II. Kalwaria is an impressive complex, located on the top of a hill. It consists of a church, a monastery and trails with chapels dedicated to the Passion of Jesus and Virgin Mary. There are more than 40 chapels, along with a six kilometre trail, in an area with topography similar to Jerusalem. During the Holy Week, spectacles of the Mistery of Passion of Jesus are organised here. Furthermore, alongside the spectacles, pilgrimages and a procession dedicated to Virgin Mary take place.
The site was appreciated by UNESCO, which included the impressive mannerist complex, and the surrounding landscape with a park for pilgrims in the 1999 World Heritage List. Thus, Kalwaria became the only Calvary in Europe and the world to be included in that list.
We will continue in direction of Wadowice, one of the oldest Polish cities (founded in late 10th or early 11th century). The city was an important administrative center during the Austrian occupation of Southern Poland (Galicia/Galicja) in the 19th century. It is the birthplace of Karol Wojtyła. In Wadowice, we will see the Main Market Square, with the main church in the city, where we can find the font in which Karol Wojtyła was baptised, and we will also see the Chapel of Our Lady of Perpetual Help. We will see the House - Museum with a new exposition, opened in April of 2014. Lunch in a local restaurant, where we will also eat the Pope's favourite cake - the kremówka. Return to Cracow.
