Sanktuarium Swietego Jana Pawla Ii - Review
It is worth heading out of the center of Krakow and down south to this church. Consecrated in 2013, it is a striking and regal looking building with two distinct halves - the lower relic church and the upper church. Inside the octagonal hall of the relic church is the altar containing a glass vase filled with papyrus blood, the papal cross of John Paul II, a plate from the tomb of John Paul II, and a reliquary. The Upper Church contains the presbytery, and bronze doors depicting the life the Pope. Next to the church is an observation and bell tower. To fully appreciate to the church, you should take the guided tours that I held on weekdays. However, the observation tower is only open on weekends.

Sanktuarium Swietego Jana Pawla II, Krakow Reviews
Amazing experience visiting the Sanctuary. It's located right across (walking distance) from the Divine Mercy Sanctuary. Here, they have preserved a number of things that were used by St. John Paul II including items from his personal room, gifts from different countries and also they've preserved the robe that he had worn when he was shot in Rome. There's a church inside with beautiful sculptures and paintings of the Pope and other Saints. Must visit if you're in Krakow.
Holy place, definitely You need to go to. GOD BLESS YOU
Definitely worth it! !!
...You can feel Jan Pawel Wojtyla's presence.. ...The Sanctuary in Krakow is a Holly Place for All Polish Roman-Catholics...
