More and more Polish travelers go for religious tours. France and Spain are among the most popular destinations, has revealed.

“Although not the cheapest, religious and spiritual tours are growing in popularity among Polish travelers. Religious traditions are deeply rooted in the lives of Poles and thus traveling to destinations connected to their faith is high in demand.”

Today, tourists from various social groups want to travel to Rome, Lourdes and Fatima, the most popular faith tourism destination.
