This was a lovely place to see. St Faustina's remains are located here, although the queue to see her was quite large at the time of my visit. Plenty of shops to buy souvenirs.

Besides being a place for relaxing and contemplating, it has also a gorgeous architecture. It even reminded of some constructions by Niemeyer, a brazilian architect.

We took a taxi from a city centre hotel for a quick visit on the way home from Czestochowa. I'd advise booking your return taxi in advance as we had a bit of a job ordering one from reception. The Shrine is a little oasis of peace a relatively short distance from the city centre. There is opportunity to see... More

I was surprised how much I like the modern architecture of this split level basilica. This is a devotional hub for St. Faustina and the Divine Mercy Devotion. There are a few sights on the grounds.

I have visited the sanctuary many times and always experience a sense of peace and tranquillity here. The New Basillica is modern and very beautiful. There is a viewing tower which provides excellent views of Krakow. The old convent church which holds the relics of Sister Faustina is simple and beautiful. Here you will find the magnificent painting of the... More

I had a lovely and blessed time in the Sanctuary of the Divine Mercy. It was about a 20-minute tram ride from my hotel (no transfers required) and it is a short hike up the hill from the tram stop. There is always a lingering sense of peace in holy places such as this, and I am really humbled that... More
