What people are saying about Kalwaria Zebrzydowska

Suggestive and out of the ordinary experience, I'm really happy I did it! My friends agree too (we were a group of 7 people). Our driver (his name is Dalek) was very kind and thorough in giving us many explanations about the various places visited, we were really lucky!

Great experience, worth it!

Immersing in the life of Pope John Paul II, seeing his birth place, the actual room where he lived and rested, the town were he spent his first 18 years of his life was a wonderful experience. It was very moving and touching.

Impressive, Impressive, Impressive

Loved the fact that we could actually tour his private residence where he grew up and the church he attended as a boy.
