Krakow Poland

Krakow is the only city in the world with sites connected with almost the whole life of John Paul II. It is this city that remembers him as a student of Polish Philology, a workman, an actor, a poet, a seminarian, a young priest saying his first masses, a university instructor, a priest in charge of the pastoral care of students and families, a bishop, the Archbishop of Krakow and finally as the Head of the Catholic Church.

Although Karol Wojtyla (John Paul II) no longer lived in Krakow from when he was called to the Holy See in 1978, each of his visits to the Royal Capital City left traces not only in the human hearts. In order to commemorate these meetings, the people of Krakow have raised monuments, hanged commemorative plaques and named important institutions after him.
