This small town in the south of Poland is a place you musn´t miss if you are visiting Poland, catholic or not. We decided to go to this village cause on the streets of Krakow everyone knows where it is Wadowice. This small town of only 20,000 inhabitants is like many other villages of Poland but the difference is that right here, on May 18th, 1920, born Karol Wojtyla, the Pope who came from the cold. Our friendly guide told us that Wadowice has changed a lot, now many pilgrims come from all countries of the world and almost all bakeries are selling the favourite cake of the Pope, the famous Kremowka... and it was delicious! We had a few days in our holidays there, so we decided to hire Krakow Tours services. We enjoyed a nice day with a detailed explanation about all the places we visited. In our case, being a big family (6), to plan our travels is difficult, but hiring these company everything became much easier.
