Depicted in one of the windows of the bishop's palace, Karol Wojtyla looks at the street. The palace was the residence of the recently declared saint for 20 years. During visits to Krakow during his papacy, Wojtyla used to address his followers from this window. I was told he would start his talk with (ironically) saying "Go away" as the authorities did not allow non-scheduled meetings. Of course his flock did not go away, but stayed on to listen. During his student years in Krakow, Wojtyla developed a talent for acting, which came in handy during his papacy. Perhaps this explains his popularity. As archbishop and later as pope he did not call for militant action against the authorities, as this was and is not in line with Catholic doctrine (teaching enduring of suffering).

This window mosiac can easily be missed when walking about Krakow old town. Stop by and observe the place where Pope John Paul 2 addressed the people of his birth place. A free attraction worthy of stopping by.

Pope John Paul addressed his flocks many times from building's window. Now, there's a nice mosaic of him there.

This is the window from there Johannes Paul II made a speech and discussion with the crowd of people when he went to Kraków for the first time as a pope. Now you can see his face in the window.
Otherwise it is not very interesting, you will simple get near it. It is interesting if you have a travel guide you can tell stories about pope's visits.

We found this when walking around Krakow. The window when he waved to the crowds is now a mural.
It is opposite St Francis of Assisi Church.
Also nice statue here of John Paul 2nd.
This was the residence of John Paul.
Certainly well worth a visit in Krakow.

While strolling the streets of Old Town Krakow , you may find a lot of interesting attractions . This nice statue of John Paul II , is located right in front of the Archibishop's Palace (Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Krakow) , right across the street from the beautiful church of St, Francis of Assisi .

The pope, John Paul the second, used to visit Kraków often as he lived there for forty years prior. He went to the university of Kraków even. The window he used to converse with crowds out of has been turned into a lovely mural. If you’re religious, particularly catholic - this is a must see.
