The Monastery of Jasna Gora is home to the miraculous “Black Madonna”, a Gothic painting of Our Lady. The mysterious image helped to make Czestochowa one of the most important pilgrimage destinations in the world – right after Rome, Lourdes and Fatima. 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 by yourself.
You can either take part in an organized tour, which sets off from Krakow every Tuesday and Thursday and makes a very convenient way to visit both Czestochowa and the castles. The alternative is the private tour with an English-speaking personal driver. The private tour can be taken on virtually any day throughout the year.
