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.
