Its something out of the ordinary, the art and decor are one of a kind pieces. Highly recommend it.Of course stay quiet and no cameras because its a place of worship.

I am not a big fan of churches but this one is amazing. Really like how spacious it is and the tower with John Paul II is superb.

We took tram no 8 to visit this well renowned sight. The journey only takes about twenty minutes for a few zlotys .stop at Sanctorium,and once up the hill , you are there. Peaceful and holy surroundings where one can visit and pray serenely.

Take a Papa bus for 5 euros, from the Pope's window in Krakow. A little van will take you there. Very nice visit!

I loved this experience in the Divine Mercy Sanctuary. The Church was beautiful & I got to see Saint Fautinas coffin & relics which are here. Amazing & so unexpected.

As the Sanctuary was not on the groups itinerary we left the group, caught the taxi it cost as 25 Polish Sloty. The Basilica is beautiful, big modern and spaces, loved the simple alter, went up the lift to see the view. We made our way to the Chapel Of The Miraculous Image Of Merciful Jesus and St. Faustina's Tomb.... More
