Ladies and gentlemen, dear friends, thousand of pilgrims from all over the world, will soon be arriving in Krakow for the
World Youth Day. I will also be honored to welcome Pope Francis for the first time on Polish soil.
We are looking forward to a festival of youth, joy and prayer. It will be a special event
in a special place. Christians from all continents will come to Krakow, a city which was so dear
to our beloved Saint John Paul II. I strongly believe that all pilgrims who will visit Poland
at the end of July, will establish new, long-lasting friendships and fall in love with my country. We are waiting for you with open arms and open hearts. See you in Krakow!
