Slovakia: John Paul II’s “Mobile Museum” visiting Kosice

(Bratislava) A “multimedia” concert dedicated to the commemoration of St. John Paul II, the first Slavonic pope, will take place on 18 December at the Steel Arena in Kosice. The coordinators of the project have decided to prepare the “European Capital of Culture 2013” in a special way for the event – by placing a Mobile Museum dedicated to John Paul II (www.janpawel2.pl) in front of the stadium. The exhibition features unique pictures, the personal belongings and the relics of the saint pope. They are situated in a vehicle, 18 meters long and 4 meters high, painted in the “Vatican” colours, and covering a surface of 62 square meters. Visitors can see various items associated with the life and the pontificate of Karol Wojtyla coming from the Archdiocesan Museum in Cracow or belonging to Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz, metropolitan archbishop of Cracow. The list of exhibits includes John Paul II’s breviary, his pen, rosary, ski, and a clock from the pontifical residence in Castel Gandolfo. Slovakia has always enjoyed the special affection of St. John Paul II who visited the country three times during his pontificate – in 1990, 1995, and 2003.
