The Black Madonna Poland

We are senior citizens and will be going to Krakow May 2014, and would love to see the Black Madonna. We cannot stand in lineups for too long because of some health issues. Is there any suggestions on how we could get in quicker?

theres alot of footwork involved here but really no line per se to get in...if you go with a tour i'm sure the guide can get you in and out with a minimum of trouble....its on a hill and a mile or so from the train station......go during the weekday when the crowds are less....the whole scene ,its much more than just the picture.....

It is an incredible place, but do expect some crowds - I have been to Częstochowa a couple of times and on both occasions there was quite a bit of scrabbling and jostling in order to see the Madonna herself, but you never know, your health issues may be miraculously cured (which is, after all, the quest of most visitors there :) )

Be aware that it is not in Krakow itself, but in Częstochowa, which is about 120 km away by train or bus.
