Very nice memorial, really makes you feel like you are in the town back in the days. There are few little houses that you can take a look and each has a little history I would highly recommend giving a quick stop by perhaps after visiting Museu Oscar which is very close by

This a mixture between a park, in which you can rest, walk or jog, with Polish style country houses. If you have never seen this kind of scenery, it is worth seeing, but if you are familiar with it, you can skip this place.

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.
