1st International Congress of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimages
"We think there is time and need for a new event in Krakow: meeting of travel advisors who focus on religious tourism, including pilgrimages" - Ernest Mirosław owner of Ernesto Travel and Congress organizer.
On behalf of Mr. Jacek Majchrowski, Mayor of the City of Krakow and the official partner of the Congress, we would like to invite you to the 1st International Congress of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimages "Following the Footsteps of the Saint Pope John Paul II" which will take place in Krakow, from November 8th through 12th, 2017. The event received a gracious support and honorary patronage from the Marshal of the Malopolskie Province, Mr. Jacek Krupa. His Eminence Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz is confirmed to attend the Congress.
Krakow and Malopolska Province is visited annually by millions of pilgrims and religious travelers. Arriving as part of organized tours or individual travel, they seek the unique experience of earthly and spiritual that only faith tourism provides. It is only fitting that they find their haven amidst Krakow's majestic cathedrals and region's sites inspired by lives of St. Pope John Paul II and St. Faustina.
According to Ernesto Travel, the congress organizer, there is no such event organized in Central and Eastern Europe. The idea behind the International Congress of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimages is to serve as a leading prelude to the UNWTO Congress on Ethics and Tourism also held in Krakow in 2018. The organizers hope for the Congress to be a meeting place for tour and travel industry providers, travel media representatives and clergy with local tourism suppliers, and to promote Krakow and Malopolska Province, as an important international religious tourism and pilgrimage destination.
