There is a commerating plate on the wall of pope John Paul II house. The inscription is in Polish. My translation:
In this house Karol Jozef Wojtyla was born on 18th May 1920 and he lived there, pope John Paul II.
It's the most popular place of taking pictures in Wadowice, I am sure. Even at night :-).
I am not crazy about any religion but... it was great and moving for me to see a house when pope John Paul II (Karol Wojtyla) was born. He was elected the head of the Roman Catholic Church on 16th October 1978 and took the name of John Paul II. He is the first non-Italian pope for over 300 years.
Fondest memory: To see the family house of pope John Paul II.
Looking at the house and courtyard of former papal house I thought about that day he was unexpectadly chosen a pope.
Haha, I remember that day: 16 Oct. 1978. All church bells started to ring in Krakow that day. Next day there were long queques to buy newspapers although the communist mass media put exclusively small official info on that event. Fortunately we could hear (although it was forbidden) the Voice of America and Radio Free Europe that time. All people around Poland were talking exclusively about it that time.
