Tuesday

We will meet at the airport at 3.30pm for our Air Malta flight departing at 5.30pm and arriving in Krakow airport at 7.55pm. On arrival we are transferred to our central 3 star hotel. After dinner one can join the tour leader for a short walk to Main Market square to enjoy Krakow night scene.

Wednesday

We will start the day by going on a half-day optional city walking tour accompanied by our guide starting with the Bishop’s Palace, Wawel Hill, Wawel Castle and Cathedral. The castle was home to many Polish kings and queens. A walk up Grodzka Street leads us to the heart of Krakow, the Rynek Gówny or Main Market Square. There, the large Gothic Cloth Hall is the perfect place for souvenir shopping. We visit also the Royal Tombs and Sigismond’s Bell. The afternoon is free to stroll around the city centre or visit Poland’s largest shopping Mall Galeria Krakowska, walking distance from our hotel.

 

Thursday

On today’s optional excursion we will go to Czestochowa, a town of special importance to St. John Paul II. He stayed there six times as Pope and chose it as the place for the 6th World Youth Day. Jasna Góra “Bright Mount” is the most important Marian shrine in Poland and a destination for hundreds of pilgrimages every year. Its focal point is the Chapel of the Blessed Virgin and its miraculous icon of the Black Madonna. When the Pope came to Jasna Góra, he always made his way to the Chapel of the Miraculous Image where he would pray and entrust the Church and the World to the hands of the Mother of God.

Friday

Today we will go on a half-day optional excursion to the Wieliczka Salt Mines, one of the oldest in all of Europe. Over the centuries, devout and superstitious miners have carved fabulous figures, monuments and altarpieces out of its salt walls. These amazing works have earned the Wieliczka Salt Mine a place on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage list. Our route through the mine leads us through galleries and chambers on three levels. We walk down and a lift carries us back to the surface.

Saturday

We board our coach and on our half-day optional excursion we head to Lagiewniki Hill to visit the Sanctuary of the Divine Mercy which St John Paul II consecrated in 2001, and the tomb of Suor Faustina. En route to our hotel we drive through and stop in the former Jewish District of Kazimierz. The afternoon is free to enjoy Krakow centre.

Sunday

The morning is free and one can attend mass. We will later go on an optional excursion with a difference taking us to Auschwitz and Birkenau. Here we witness one of the most memorable lessons of modern European history. During our visit we’ll see the flower strewn Death Wall, the national memorials, the rail line and remains of the hundreds of barracks, a testimony to the number of lost lives through Nazi activities across occupied Europe.

Monday

We will go on our full-day optional excursion to Zakopane, a town lying in the Tatra National Park in the heart of the magnificent Tatra Mountains. Your sightseeing tour of the town will include a funicular train ride to the top of Mount Gubaówka where you will enjoy a panoramic view of the Tatras, as well as a visit to the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fatima, built as a votive offering of thanks to her for saving the Pope’s life after the assassination attempt of 13 May 1981. Karol Wojtya’s love of the Tatras and Podhale region was fostered in his youth when he used to trek through the mountains with his father and brother.

Tuesday

This morning we will go on an optional excursion to Wadowice, the birthplace of Pope Wojtyla. The visit will include the entrance to new multimedia Museum of St. John Paul II in His house of birth. While there we see the Pope’s monument erected in front of the gothic Parish Church and also visit this church where the Vicar of Christ was baptized, served as an altar boy and prayed daily in front of the picture of Our Lady of Perpetual Help. En route to Krakow we will visit Kalwaria Zebrzydowska with its Basilica dedicated to Our Lady of the Angels and an important place of devotion in Poland. We return back to our hotel and later proceed to Krakow Airport for our Air Malta flight departing at 8.40pm and arriving in Malta at 11.10pm.
