Zakopane is a famous skiing resort with people gathering both in winter and summer in its centre which is lined with cafes, restaurants and boutiques. A tour of Zakopane includes a funicular train ride to the top of Mount Gubaówka to enjoy a panoramic view of the Tatras, as well as a visit to the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fatima, built as a votive offering of thanks to her for saving the Pope John Paul’s life after the assassination attempt of 13 May 1981.

Buffet breakfast and free time to roam in Krakow. In the afternoon we go on an optional excursion with a difference taking us to the concentration camp of Auschwitz and Birkenau to witness the horrors of World War II.
During our visit to this place of great significance to both the Polish and Jewish communities, we will see the flower-strewn Death Wall, the national memorials, the rail line and remains of the hundreds of barracks, a testimony to the number of lost lives through Nazi atrocities. In the evening dinner (optional) at hotel.

After buffet breakfast we will go on a half-day optional excursion to the Wieliczka Salt Mines, one of the oldest and most spectacular in all of Europe. Over the centuries, devout and superstitious miners have carved fabulous figures, monuments and altarpieces out of its salt walls. These amazing works have earned the Wieliczka Salt Mine a place on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage list. 
Our route through the mine leads us through galleries and chambers on three levels. Back in Krakow, we will have a free afternoon for some shopping at Krakowska Shopping Mall. In the evening dinner (optional) at hotel.

While there we see the Pope’s monument erected in front of the gothic Parish Church and also visit this church where the Vicar of Christ was baptized, served as an altar boy and prayed daily in front of the picture of Our Lady of Perpetual Help. 
En route to Krakow we will visit Kalwaria Zebrzydowska with its Basilica dedicated to Our Lady of the Angels and an important place of devotion in Poland. In the evening dinner (optional) at hotel.

After buffet breakfast today’s optional excursion we will take us to Czestochowa, a town of special importance to St. John Paul II. He stayed there six times as Pope and chose it as the place for the 6th World Youth Day. 
Jasna Góra “Bright Mount” is the most important Marian shrine in Poland and a destination for hundreds of pilgrimages every year. 
Its focal point is the Chapel of the Blessed Virgin and its miraculous icon of the Black Madonna. When the Pope went to Jasna Góra, he always made his way to the Chapel of the Miraculous Image where he would pray there. We will visit the church and the monastery, both built in baroque style.
