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.

  • A great place of peace and réflexion. Very prayerful and calm

  • ...You can feel Jan Pawel Wojtyla's presence.. ...The Sanctuary in Krakow is a Holly Place for All Polish Roman-Catholics...

  • Huge Sanktarium for Šv. Jonui Pauliui II. Here are you can find the clothes that he wore when he was shot.

  • Beautiful sanctuary built in honor of JPII. More modern looking than many of the other churches inside Kraków. Inside is displayed the casset JPII was wearing when he was shot. The bullet hole and blood can still be seen on the casset.

  • A sanctuary dedicated to The great John Paul II.
