AGLOW IN KRAKOW
Our journey to Krakow began in 2015 in preparation for the great event with Pope Francis known as World Youth Day.
Aglow were the official chosen tour operator for multiple dioceses throughout the UK including Leeds, Lancaster and Salford dioceses, successfully leading over 350 young people to Poland.
It was during these preliminary visits that we were introduced to excellent friendly local hotel managers, guides and transport providers who continue to work closely with us in serving all the needs of our pilgrims.
