Poland 5: Zakopane to Wadowice to Kalwaria to Krakow
by Steve Ray on August 26, 2019
It’s sad to leave the pine-covered mountains of Zakopane. The hotel here has been very comfortable and it will be hard to get people on the bus to leave 🙂 But this morning we head to Wadowice which is the birthplace of St. Pope John Paul II, known then as Karl Józef Wojtyła. Here we’ll discuss his early life and have lunch including cabbage gołabki and his favorite cake.
Then on to the Polish Jerusalem which I’m not even going to try to describe, you can see it in the movie. We celebrated Mass here in the remarkable chapel (homily here). From there we settle in at our beautiful hotel and Krakow and prepare for our last three days in Poland.
