Format: Paperback
I couldn't believe it when I found this book. I had no idea it existed! It has all the great shrines and places of pilgrimage in central & eastern Europe, and talks about their histories (I love the way the stories are written), as well as provides really important travel information such as contact info, places to stay, how to get there, etc. Now after getting this great guidebook, I sure hope I can find a way to make a trip out there. But if not, it's just an awesome book to have at home anyways!

Format: Paperback
What a great Catholic travel guidebook! My friends & I used it to plan a trip to pilgrimage sites in Eastern & Central Europe. This book was extremely user-friendly, and provided everything we needed....information on the shrines, contact information, places to stay, website/email addresses, things to see/do, info on how to get there, as well as great tips and hints. Because of this book, we were able to visit such holy sites as The Shrine of Divine Mercy, Infant Child of Prague, the Blessed Virgin Mary's House in Turkey, the famous Hill of Crosses in Lithuania, and much more! In short - without this book, our (awesome!) pilgrimage trip could not have been done.

The detail in the information is great. Since I have been to several of the Polish shrines I was impressed with information included and background pieces I didn't. I had hoped for some color pictures of the interior of some places, but you can't have everything.

This book helps all to realize the magnificence of our Lord. The wonders that are given to us from heaven for all to see. This is a wonderful book for those who can travel and also for those who cannot. We all can experience the graces given to us.
