John Paul II visited Switzerland three times during his 26 years as head of the Catholic Church. In 1982, on an unofficial trip to Geneva, he visited some of the international organisations based in the city. In June 1984, he spent six days touring Switzerland, during which he visited 14 towns and cities. And in June 2004, he spent two days in the "Protestant" capital, Bern, where he attended a youth gathering of 13,000, and was present at a Mass which drew an estimated 70,000 of the faithful.
