He'll be very close to Krakow while in Slovakia, can't imagine that he wouldn't want to make the short trip to visit. There has been some kind of death threat issued but not many details there.

From News 8 Austin | 24 Hour Local News | HEADLINES | Death threat made on Pope:

"There's been a death threat made against Pope John Paul as he prepares to go to Slovakia later this week.

The threat was reported Tuesday by a Slovak newspaper. Authorities are confirming the threat but won't elaborate on its nature. They say they don't want to say anything that could help any would-be attackers.

The pope arrives in Slovakia Thursday. Thousands of police officers and guards will be on duty during the four-day visit."
