Embark on the pilgrimage route to Częstochowa, the religious and spiritual center of Poland, home to the Black Madonna, the most cherished relic of the country.
Częstochowa Black Madonna Half Day Trip Itinerary
Depart from the city center of Kraków first thing in the morning on a comfortable minibus and relax while you are driven 140km (87 miles) to the Silesia Province, where Częstochowa is located.
Częstochowa is an industrial town in southern Poland renowned for its magnificent abbey, the Jasna Góra Monastery, established by the Pauline monks in 1382. Jasna Góra has become a world-known site of pilgrimage because it houses a magnificent painting of the Virgin Mary and the Christ Child.
The monastery became famous in the seventeenth century when three hundred men managed to protect it from a siege of 12,000 Swedish armed men. This was considered the first miracle of the Black Madonna.
Nowadays, the relic of the Virgin Mary is the most revered relic in Poland and one of its national symbols.
The coach will drop you off in Krakow at around 3pm.
The journey to Częstochowa does not include a guide, but once you get to the destination the guided tour is exclusively in English.
