They do respect Pope John Paul II a lot in Tychy. There is his picture not only in each church including St. Maria Magdalena church as on my picture (with Kathy, Kodi01 on the bottom) but in private homes as well. Even non-catholic minority of Tychy respect the pope as a human being and real world leader not only catholic pope.

The pope was born in Wadowice and he was a bishop of Krakow before he wa chosen a pope. He never visited Tychy as a pope but nearby Katowice, Oswiecim (Auschwitz), Kalwaria Zebrzydowska, Wadowice and surely Krakow. A lot of citizens of Tychy went to meet him during his visits.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
