12 Days of Summer in the Austro-Hungarian Empire – Part III

We made a quick stop, about 30 minutes, in Wadowice, the birthplace of Pope John Paul II. There we visited the 'Minor Basilica of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary', where the former pope was baptized and served many masses. Just outside the Basilica in the main square you can see the countries visited by John Paul II engraved on the ground — he was quite a traveler! This nice little town was filled with statues and followers of the former pope. A nice stop between Auschwitz and the Salt Mine if you're traveling by car.

Profile photo of Paula Stefanini

My name is Paula Stefanini, I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and currently live in Los Angeles, U.S. I am a writer and exploring the world is my ultimate passion in life. Getting to see incredible places and learn about different cultures and their history has always been fascinating to me. Traveling gives me the thrill of experiencing the unknown and the sensation of motion, which fulfills my soul in a way that nothing else does. Also, the knowledge acquired on trips are in itself another purpose to keep on doing it. So far I have visited 25 counties, and my goal is to see them all! I currently write for Unite4:Good Magazine, a publication which targets people and organizations working towards making the world a better place (http://unite4.org/magazine#magazine-content).
