Czestochowa Black Madonna
Tour no. 12
In the city of Czestochowa is Poland's national shrine and the icon which has drawn pilgrims from across the globe for centuries. The monastery of Jasna Gora is home to the miraculous "Black Madonna", a Gothic painting of Our Lady, which after Rome, Lourdes and Mecca makes Czestochowa one of the most important pilgrimage destinations in the world today. Our visit to the monastery includes the Miraculous Picture Chapel and the Basilica. Also, you can visit the 600th-Anniversary Museum, the Arsenal and the Treasury on your own, if you wish, while others on the tour have a break for lunch and buying souvenirs. Then, our journey back to Cracow takes you along the Eagles Nests' Trail, a historic strategic system of watchtowers and castles. Today most of these are in ruins. However, not all of them have been completely destroyed and you will see some that have managed to endure the rigours of time. Short visit to Pieskowa Skala - a well-preserved Renaissance Castle.
