This is the ultimate pilgrimage site in Poland, and of serious importance. We stayed one night and visited the site in the morning. Start early to avoid crowds, and pay particular attention to the showing of the black madonna (veiling and unveiling times). If you...More

Our Lady of Czestochowa, also known as the “Black Madonna,” is an awe inspiring place to visit. It was a favorite of Pope John Paul II. This is a must visit for Roman Catholic devotees.
