It's very close to the museum, a 5 minute walk. The park has little houses that were imported from Poland. And the Pope came to visit it, John Paul.

You don't have to be a Catholic to fall in love with this place that commemorates the Pope's visit. Curitiba is famous for its manicured nature and this place is proof of that.

Very nice little garden with some typical old Polish structures. Quite a few things there connected to the visit of John Paul II to Curitiba. Worth a stroll on a nice day.

It is funny to find such a place in the middle of the center of a big Brazilian City. I walked here with my friend and we visited the Polish Memorial. It was small but nice to see.

Although I was expecting a bigger place, it's a lovely wood to walk around. The memorial is absolutelly beautiful and you can learn a little about the story of the Polish migrants in Brazil. I strongly recommend you to try the sweets that are sold in the souvenir shop, they're really yummy.

Don't miss the Papa Joao Paulo II Park with its Polish village and wonderful greenery. A few meters from there, you have the Museum of Modern Art of Curitiba, also worth visiting.

This is one of the most interesting parks of Curitiba. There, you can stroll through the alleys and visit the huts Memorial. If you are lucky you may be surprised by the yellow butterfly (local) with the number 88 on the wings. Sign of good luck. In addition, you can visit the shop where are sold pysankas (eggs hand-painted according... More
