A short yet memorable visit in Cracow, Poland at the beautiful sanctuary. The peacefulness of the surroundings was wonderful.

I think I was a bit shocked that the Sanctuary was quite modern, but it is lovely inside and there is an elevator that allows for a magnificent view of the countryside.

Was overwhelmed and touched by the faith of the pilgrims praying quietly in front of the Blessed Sacrament, St. Faustina's tomb, and the Miraculous Image of Merciful Jesus. Was very happy and content to have venerated the relic of St. Faustina.

I have never seen something like this before. It is worth the visit. The tower provides really nice view all around the city.

We took the number 8 tram from the square In front of the tourist information booth in old town. It took us within a 10 minute walk to the Sanctuary of Divine Mercy.

Hi. I think you will need to walk up the road to the entrance. I don't remember using steps. The road is fairly steep uphill.
