Exploring Peaceful, Pleasant, Holy Pelplin

Exploring Peaceful, Pleasant, Holy Pelplin, Pelplin, Poland (B)

My oh my! When I continue to tell people about these places I have been, you can never quite believe it. Pelplin is gorgeous and has been one of the recent stops towards the end of my backpacking journey, here in Poland, I visited just before my time in Starogard Gdański and just after my visit to Tczew. It’s a gorgeous wee town, but it’s unforgettable.

I made the pleasant, lonely walk out of Pelplin this morning to climb to the Hill of Jan Pawel II on a Sunday morning as well as touring the sights of this tranquil place. This is a really spiritual and holy town. It was a nice place to find peace, to pray, to dream, to love and to admire the beauty of the fields and sky around me. Nobody else was here. I’m trying to be a better person every day, to myself and to others. I stayed in the only hotel in the village – the Hotel Nad Wierzycą, the Only Hotel in Pelplin. When touring Pelplin, here are my personal top things to check out.

Pelplin Abbey is predictably the main reason why people come here. It dates back to 1258 and was an Abbey. It is now a fully functioning cathedral church and I caught a poignant Sunday service here. Since 1824 the church, known as Pelpin Cathedral, has been the cathedral of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Pelplin. ......
