Get thee to a nunnery! August 12, 2006

Posted by Amanda in Travel Diary.

Poland, and Krakow in particular, is full of nuns! You see a few priests, but mostly nuns of all shapes and sizes and in habits of all colours and creeds.

There are some very young novices as well, some looked only about 17.

It always makes me wonder why so many more young people in countries like Poland and Italy are willing to go into the church. These countries aren’t particularly poor but I suppose it is just that the church features so much more heavily in every day life.

I have put some pictures on Flickr
