Jasna Gora, Czestochowa

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.

  • Having gone here, I understood why this place is called the heart of Poland. this is the place of great historical importance as well as a spiritual strength for the country. The presence of the mother of God here is strong, I could feel her love as well as my heart growing. Most importantly I felt my polish pride increase as well.
  • Glad we went here last during our trip in Poland. It was the most lavish church we visited and we saw a lot. If you happen to pass through Czestochowa it's worth your time. Even if you aren't Catholic. I wish we had more time to see everything.
