    Map of the complex and the pilgrims path

    by yumyum Written Jun 11, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    1 more image

    Favorite thing: There is a 8 km long pilgrim's path that takes you around the 40 chapels which are said to resemble the one in Jerusalem. You can view a map on the second photo.

    On the first photo you see the main complex of the Benedictine church and its surroundings.

    Fondest memory: In the front of the church there is a biggish square and on one side you will find souvenir shops which sell souvenirs, refreshments and religious artifacts. Unfortunately at none of the stalls I have seen any single postcards but there is another shop behind the church where the postbox is there is probably a good chance to find some there when the shop is open.

    POST-BOX

    Favorite thing: It's always a great pleasure to receive a postcard from far, mysterious place. You can buy postcards in Kiosk z dewocjonaliami opened daily: 7.00 am - 12.15 pm and 1.15 pm - 5.00 pm.
    Then look for a red post-box as on my picture to send them.

    Public phones

    PUBLIC  PHONES

    Favorite thing: There are public phones available just outside House of Pilgrim (Dom Pielgrzyma) - look at my picture.
    Warning: international calls are still very expensive in Poland - it should change in a few years. Usually it's a few times more expensive to call abroad from Poland than from abroad to Poland (7 times reffering to New Zealand for example - CRAZY!).

    AUDIO-VISUAL  TOURIST  INFORMATION  UNIT

    Favorite thing: There is an audio-visual tourist information unit located by the entrance to the basilica.
    It costs 2.00 zl (coins 2.00, 1.00 and 0.5 zl acceptable).
    Languages available:
    - English,
    - French,
    - German,
    - Polish.
    There are info tables with information (history) on Calvarian Basilica in English located just by the unit.

    I recommend you to buy a guide-book in a Kiosk z dewocjonaliami before you start your trip around.
