    Wawolnica is the important Marian Sanctuary for the catholics. It's the place of a cult of the figure of the Mother of God of Kebelow (Madonna from a lime tree) which stands in the main altar of the parish church.
    It's said that pilgrimage to Wawolnica gives good health and cures diseases.
    .
    There is annual walking pilgrimage to Wawolnica from the Lublin dioceses and there are religious celebrations during the night and day of the church fair in the sanctuary.
    .
    The pic is from the internet (sorry, I don't have mine).

    There is the old narrow-gauge railway track (750mm instead of 1435mm "normal" railway) and the station in Wawolnica. The railway connects Naleczow with Rozalin and is 28 km long. It's not used in any schedule now.
    If you want to ride it (rather for groups, I suppose) you must applicate in a local tourist office.

    After WWII Wawolnica has become a victim of soviet crimes.
    It was completely burned out on 2 May 1946 by people from security police (UB) ruled by soviet communist occupants. Two people were burned alive and many injured. UB didn't allow the fire brigades to enter the village to put out the fire.
    .
    The ivestigations of the Institute of National Memory revealed that soviet ocupants murdered in Lublin region twice more people in 1944-1947 then Germans during the whole WWII.

    The only remaing of the castle built in Wawalnica in 14th century by Polish king Casimir III the Great is the chapel.

    Wawalnica was from 1364 to 19th century a city with a castle surrounded by city walls. The king's city (called Königsberg that time) was located on the commercial track from old Polish capitol Krakow to Lithuania.

    Favorite thing: There is the stone figure of St. John Nepomucen right to the parish church.
    There are more then 140 stone or wooden figures of St. John in Lublin region.

    Favorite thing: Driving from Naleczow to Kazimierz Dolny you can't miss neogothic in style the parish church by the right side of the road.
    .
    The parish is first mentioned in 1325. The present church is built of red brick in 1907-1914.
    There is Madonna from a lime tree (Mother of God of Walwolica) from 13/14 century in the main altar.
