Catholic faith is one of the major factors that define the character of Poland. No wonder that for centuries it has been called the Rampart of Christianity. Polish culture and history have always been strongly connected with the Church, and our tradition largely stems from religion. Poland is still considered one of the most religious countries of Europe. To understand this phenomenon, it is necessary to examine the matter a bit further. Cracow Planet team can help you to get some knowledge about the origins of Catholicism in Poland, the Polish saints, and tell you how the State and the Church have influenced each other for ages. In the past, Krakow was known as the Rome of northern Europe. Visiting this city and exploring its religious heritage you can learn about the symbolic meaning of the sacral art, the history of the Catholic Church and its tradition – the cult of the relics, coronation of holy icons, great pilgrimage centres… Such a visit presents the unique opportunity of understanding the essence of catholic religion.

The role of the Polish Pope in history seems to be a rare phenomenon. Here in Poland you can follow the Route of John Paul II, retracing his life and mission. Cracow Planet will show you the places, and tell you about the people who had an impact on young Wojtyla’s life and calling. This will help you to understand his work and his influence on Polish history.

The countries of Central, and Eastern Europe, had lost their independence as the Soviet Union forcibly installed the communist regime there. Yet, in spite of the terror and genocide, the Poles never resigned themselves to the loss of independence.
