To truly understand Polish people you must visit and understand how special is Jasna Gora. So much history is there one day won't be enough. For English speakers only I recommend Fr. Szymon Stefanowicz as your guide.

Before visiting this place I recommend everybody to read a little what this place means for Polish. Why it has special place in most Polish hearts. Especially fragment about 17th-century Swedish invasion. It is amazing place with its architecture and atmosphere. Do not miss to see important icon of the Virgin Mary. When you enter main church is on the... More

I came here as a pilgrim on a side trip when I visited Krakow for World Youth Day. I took a cab from my hotel in Main Square and only paid $60 round trip! Otherwise I would have had to walk to the train station, jump on a couple of trains, then cab it to the actual church. The cab... More

I was blessed to travel here on a Pilgrimage with Catholic priests and a Polish tour guide. Please plan ahead to be sure you can see the Black Madonna and attend Mass here. This is an important historical and religious site.

When you think of huge beautiful religious places to visit, specially if you're not a very religious person, Jasna Gora is probably not even on your list. Maybe Vatican City, Santiago de Compostela, Lourdes, ... but this is definitely a place to add to the said list. We happened to go there on the 2nd of November, and due to... More

This is a holy place that everyone should visit while visiting Poland. It does have a real significance for all the polish people. People often goes there on pilgrimage and is accessible to everyone.

I recommend staying PAST a weekend, so one has the experience of quiet and solitude at Jasna Gora. I arrived on Sunday morning; spent a very crowded, busy day there, doubting whether I would ever get a glimpse of the holy icon. The Monastery opens at 5 a.m., of which I highly recommend profiting. I went there at 6 a.m.... More

I really can't fully express in words what visiting Jasna Gora Monastery, where the miraculous image of Our Lady of Czestochowa, meant to me. It had been a dream of mine for a number of years to make a pilgrimage out to visit her. The monastery is just breathtaking and not because of the physical building in itself, but because... More

I am not one of the most religious people in the world but still it was quite touching visiting to Jasna Góra with its hundreds of believers. We booked a private tour with one of the sisters since we only had a little over one hour there, and it was fundamental having her explanations of the meaning of symbols to... More
