The Camino de Vistula, the first aquatic pilgrim’s way to Santiago de Compostela, was inaugurated on 20 August in Dobrzyń, on the Vistula River, where a new chapel houses the wood carving of the apostle, which was consecrated in Santiago de Compostela.
The Vistula River’s “blue trail” for pilgrims in Poland.
The celebration included the launching of the first official boat journey on the Camino de Vistula and the annual pilgrimage of the wood carving of Saint James. The carving travelled down the river from Krakow to the city of A Coruña, in Spain. Then, on land, it was taken to the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, where it was consecrated. Finally, it ended its journey in Dobrzyń, on the Vistula River, which is already considered to be the Vistula River’s “blue trail” for pilgrims in Poland.
