Jasna Gora, Czestochowa
(4.6/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
Make a pilgrimage to one of the spiritual capitals of the Polish people, Jasna Gora. The church is home to the Black Madonna of Częstochowa, said to have special powers and thought to perform miracles. The monastery's spires and romantic architecture make an impressive sight on the open land where it stands. Thousands of pilgrims travel to the site in groups every year to honor the sacred objects, some crossing 350 km (217 mi) in 11 days to reach the monastery; you may catch a view of the procession. Even when visitors are in the thousands, the interior of the complex remains quiet. Pilgrims often fall on their knees in reverence as part of the tradition of honoring the Madonna.

  • While the delegation had the opportunity to visit the many famous places like the Jasna Góra and although Częstochowa and Poland has a very meager advertising in Europe, I must say, that places such as Lourdes are 70% less interesting. Definitely noteworthy is the fact that in you can visit the Sanctuary the thematic few Częstochowa exhibitions/museums and it's totally free. In the period from March to December you can admire the panorama from the Tower of the shrine. Surely a point of residence is a prayer before the Black Madonna but that's probably all know. The only pity is that in Lourdes which is a small city are dozens of hotels in 3 or 4 star-filled by the pilgrims, who also do not save money at local stores and restaurants. Polish Pilgrim this is together sandwiches and arrives by train and hotel accommodation can dream. So do not listen, it's embarrassing to see the City in the world is a little more charming places of this type.

  • It was a spiritual journey to the shrine. Long queue for confession, then a wonderful conversation with a monk. You can go to mass, Novena, rosary or in silence meditate.
