Easter in Nature
We would like to invite you to Poland to get a taste of the beautiful blooming of spring.
We welcome you to the Tatry mountains, where one finds blooming krokusy - the most known flower of the Polish mountains. The spring scenery becomes phenomenal when a sudden abundance of the krokus flowers appear. Thousands of purple flowers growing side by side, often with snow covered peaks in the background - this is an unforgettable sight.
Spirit of Easter
Easter is a religious and spiritual holiday. For this reason, this is a great time to visit Polish churches and pilgrimage sites.
Kalwaria Zebrzydowska is a one of the oldest, 400 year old, cavalry sanctuary in Poland and one of the most often visited places of the cult. This is a unique cultural experience, with which the beautiful, natural scenery is used as a symbol to introduce and implement the 12 steps of Christ’s suffering where visitors find chapels along the trail showing the 12 Stations of Jesus Christ. During the holy week before Easter, one finds colourful and spectacular showings of Christ’s Suffering. Kalwaria Zebrzydowska was Pope John Paul II’s favourite place.
Another known pilgrimage area during Easter time is Licheń. Here, one finds a mountain by the name of Golgota, with stations of Christ’s Path as well as figures and statues of the Mother of Christ and St. John. Every year over 100 actors participate in the spectacle of Christ’s Sufferings.
