About
Częstochowa is a town in Silesia, famous for its magnificent Pauline monastery at Jasna Góra with the miraculous painting of Black Madonna, a shrine of the Virgin Mary. In the 17th century, it was under a month-long siege by Swedish forces. A small group of monks fought off the numerous Swedes and managed to save their sacred icon.

What to expect
  • Meet your guide at either your Kraków Hotel or a centrally located meeting point. Then, travel by bus to reach the city of Częstochowa. Located on the banks of the Warta River, this town in the Silesian voivodeship, or province, has a long history that dates back to the 11th century. Enter the beautiful monastic complex of Jasna Góra with included admission, and learn about the medieval site’s history from your guide. Founded in 1382 by an order of Pauline monks who emigrated from Hungary at the bequest of Duke Władysław, Jasna Góra is today one of Poland’s most important pilgrimage sites. Hear how the monastery has survived throughout the centuries, even triumphing over a month-long Swedish invasion against all odds in the 17th century. See the famous Black Madonna painting and shrine, whose origins are shrouded in mystery and legends. Listen to accounts of miracles attributed to the icon, leading to its widespread veneration and recognition by three different popes. Relax on the ride back to Kraków in the afternoon, where your tour concludes with drop-off back at your original departure point.
