    Day 5  Czestochowa – Wadowice – Zakopane

    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 the 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 the 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 Albertine 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. Upon arrival in Krakow, settled in, then perhaps a short stroll in the old city before or after your dinner.

    Day 7 Krakow – Auschwitz – Krakow

    After breakfast explore Market Square and hear the silver trumpet of the bugler from St Mary’s Tower. Within the Cathedral, you may pray before the extraordinary Wit Stwosz altar. The surroundings of the square have remained unchanged for almost 700 years and contain buildings of historic value such as St. Mary’s Church with the famous wooden altar, the Town Hall Tower, the Cloth Hall, and the burgher’s houses. 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. You will see the cell that imprisoned St. Maximillian Kolbe and the Martyrdom Museum recalling the horrors of the Holocaust. Return to Krakow for dinner and overnight.

    Day 8  Krakow – Full Day Visit to Lagiewniki
