Jasna Gora, Czestochowa

#1 of 125 in Things to do in Silesia Province
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • Very impressive. Watching the Black Madonna not in the book but live is really an emotion. The chapels are also very well decorated, so it is a pleasure also just staying there staring at such beautiful pieces of art.
  • Viewing the painting brought tears to my eyes - a truly unparalelled spiritual moment in my life!
  • If visiting, you must attend the 6am mass where they unveil the painting. Surreal experience.
  • The fabled Pauline Monastery that has an impressive sight
  • One of the most beautiful church's..toured the entire grounds...it was amazing.
