City of Saints: A Pilgrimage to John Paul II’s Kraków by George Weigel, Carrie Gress, and Stephen Weigel is a travelogue that describes Kraków, Poland, while also talking about a great man who came from this city: John Paul II. Since I am not Catholic and have never been to Poland, I found this new wealth of information to be fascinating as I read about Kraków’s historical and cultural landmarks. I loved learning about various neighborhoods, churches, and key buildings in Kraków, and I especially enjoyed the section which discussed The Jagiellonian University, which was established in 1364. The photographs in the book (some of which are in color) bring these stunning landmarks to life, and my favorite photograph featured the majestic Basilica of St. Francis.
