Modern center filled with mosaics. Great walkway to travel from the Sanctuary of Divine Mercy. The museum had many interesting pieces but only bits of it were translated to English. We were able to translate as needed on our phones.

This church is very new and build to remember pope John Paul II of Poland. It's modern and hence very different than other churches, but still has the spirit of a church. Especially the inside is very beautiful. It's well worth a visit. The tower...More
