The city of Krakow, Poland, will host international World Youth Day (WYD) celebrations in 2016, Pope Francis has announced.

As WYD concluded in Rio de Janeiro on July 28, the Holy Father made the announcement that the next international gathering will take place in Krakow, where Blessed John Paul II, who established the WYD tradition, once served as archbishop. Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz, the current Archbishop of Krakow, was personal secretary to the beloved Polish Pope.
