Jasna Gora, Czestochowa

(4.6/5 based on 480+ 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.

  • Very accessible by train from Krakow. About 20 minute walk from the train station to the sanctuary. The architecture is beautiful and the sanctuary is so big that it is totally taken by this unique place. Open from 5: 00 to 9:30 pm opening of the miraculous icon from 6 h to 12 h. The masses at the feet of the icon of the Virgin are exceptional (possibility of mass in french). The Chapel is full of ex voto in all kind: crutches hanging on the wall for healings, rosaries, jewelry. Possibility to dine in front of the sanctuary, gardens of the Zamkowa Staszica just next door Park to find some shade and tranquility.

  • To truly understand Polish people you must visit and understand how special is Jasna Gora. So much history is there one day won't be enough. For English speakers only I recommend Fr. Szymon Stefanowic...  more »
  • Jasna Góra, the most important Sanctuary in Poland, as for me. Many have heard about it, but I have visited only at the age of tight mature. For me has an extra sentiment, because my daughter's name is Paulina. Definitely worth a visit not once and not two. You can recharge your batteries, feel better on the soul, the same positive energy, many historic and beautiful decor, memorials. John Paul II, Cardinal. Stefan Wyszyński, ks. Jerzy Popieluszko.
