This morning you will have Mass and Visit Jasna Gora Monastery with the Black Madonna picture. One of the most important places of religious worship in the Christian world, with tradition of pilgrimages that goes back to the 14th century. Our Holy Father has frequently visited Jasna Gorna Monastery, known as the Shrine of the Black Madonna. The group will celebrate Mass at the Pauline Monastery and venerate the priceless treasures contained within, including the Miraculous Icon.  Next travel to Zakopane, with a stop along the way in Wadowice, the birthplace of Karol Wojtyla. Visit the house where the Pope, John Paul II, was born. It has since been turned into a shrine-like museum. You will also visit the church he was attended and was baptized as a child. Next continue on to Zakopane, a resort village nestled in the splendor of the Tatras region. This afternoon we  take a cable car ride to the nearby mountaintop for extraordinary views. Dinner and overnight.


Day 6 - Zakopane - Krakow  

Before leaving the beautiful Zakopane,  for the great city of Krakow, you will follow a short distance on one of John Paul II's walking trails of the Zakopane region, a beautifully situated place within Tatras Mountains in the valley between Gubalowka and Giewont.  Zakopane and its vicinity is something of a mountain folklore reserve, with many pearls of typical wooden architecture. Horse-drawn carriages will take you to Kalatowki (optional). Admire picturesque landscapes of Polish highest mountains and visits the Hermitage of St. Brother Albert, founder of the Albertines Order. A short walk along colorful Krupowki Street for some last minute shopping in the local bazaar.  On route to Krakow there will be a stop at the Tieliczka Salt Mines.

Tour the Cathedral, Coronation Chapel and the Royal Chambers where a superb collection of Arras tapestries is on view.  In the afternoon you will visit Auschwitz, the notorious Nazi concentration camp.
