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.
We are pleased to announce the 2nd International Congress of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimages "Following the Footsteps of the St Faustina Kowalska" will take place in Krakow, from November 7th through 11th, 2018.
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.
