Dear Friends!

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 are 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.

The 2017 edition was attended by approximately 200 travel industry representatives from 30 countries and has already become one the key events for religious tourism, a part of Central and Eastern Europe Religious conference. We were honored to host the guests from all over the world, with the biggest representations from Spain and Italy, followed by many other countries, including Japan, Malaysia, Paraguay, Argentina, Mexico, USA, Canada, Israel. We welcomed every single guest and we made all the efforts to make their stay memorable experience.
