Czestochowa
Every year, millions of pilgrims flock to the riverside city of Częstochowa to pay their respects to the Black Madonna, a medieval icon credited with miraculous victories and held in the Jasna Góra Monastery. But there's more to the city; visit its museums, historic market square, and a memorial to its murdered Jewish citizens.

The Basics
When in Częstochowa, you won't want to miss the sprawling Jasna Góra Monastery, where the Black Madonna is unveiled twice daily. While locals might make the pilgrimage on foot, international travellers tend to arrive from Krakow, a 2-hour drive to the south. Join a tour that pairs Częstochowa with other pilgrimage sites in the Krakow area, particularly those associated with St. John Paul II, the first Polish pope.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Częstochowa is a must for Roman Catholics and history buffs alike.
  • Częstochowa is stroller-friendly, provided families visit at times when the crowds are not too intense.
  • The most important parts of Jasna Góra Monastery are wheelchair accessible, including the chapel with the Black Madonna.
How to Get There
Częstochowa is about an 85-mile (137-kilometer) drive north of Krakow in southern Poland. There are regular train connections to cities including Krakow (1.5 hours) and Warsaw (2.5 hour).

When to Get There
The Częstochowa pilgrimage season peaks on 15 August, the festival of the Assumption, when Catholics believe Mary was received into heaven. It’s a colorful time but most travelers will find the crowds intense. Visit midweek for a more relaxed experience, and time your trip to see the icon unveiled—either very early in the morning or around lunch.

Christian Sights Around Krakow
A deeply religious nation, Poland draws Catholics from around the world. Highlights in the Krakow area include Krakow’s Archdiocesan Museum, dedicated to St. John Paul II, the John Paul II Center in the suburb of Lagiewniki, and the Family Home of John Paul II, where the saint was born in Wadowice. The Wieliczka Salt Mine, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, houses some spectacular chapels, with salt sculptures and chandeliers.
