              Gifts of Holy Father John Paul II.

 

Visitors, in the Museum, can see a personal memorabilia of the priest Karol Wojtyła and also the gifts for Pope John Paul II presented to him on numerous occasions. The most common are gifts from his apostolic journeys, audiences with statesmens, individuals and representatives of varius communities - not only Catholic. A considerable number of such gifts was given to the Archdiocesan Museum by Pope John Paul II himself. Particular attention should be paid to papal medals issued by the Vatican and also Polish papal medals issued to commemorate the papal visits to Poland. Medals are complemented with series of photographs portraying the pontificate of Pope John Paul II taken by the photographer Adam Bujak.

On the left are some examples of gifts of Holy Father John Paul II, divided into 8 cathegories.
