Wadowice is a city located south of Krakow where Karol Wojtyla the future Pope John Paul II was born. Visitors to Wadowice can visit his family home which is filled with photographs and pope's personal belongings. Just a short walk from the home is a church in which young Karol Wojtyla was baptized and received first communion.
During a recent visit to the Polish city of Wroclaw, I fell in love with the magical world of the gnomes. The miniature dwarf statues can be discovered in all corners of the city and offer the tourists a fun activity combined with a deep sense of satisfaction every time one appears in sight. Get to know them, find out more about why they're there and how you can find them.
Foreign tourists in Kraków, Poland, must see nearby Wieliczka Salt Mines as well. This world-class attraction, which features amazing geological structures, treasures of Polish history and art, made it to the World Cultural and Natural Heritage List, maintained by UNESCO.
