Visited on Thursday 5th October. We made a special visit to Czestochowa so we could visit the Monastery and in particular the Black Madonna, well worth doing it.

Best Italian food in Czestochowa, always at good quality level but also offers a nice selection of typical local food at good quality level. Good and friendly service.

I was a real experience for me. I had heard of the Black Madonna but after visiting the Church, I was amazed. I got to experience the opening ceremony as well as the closing ceremony of the veiling and unveiling of the Black Madonna.

There are various unveiling and veiling times during the day. For our visit it was unveiled at 6 am, veiled at noon, unveiled at 1pm and veiled at 9 pm. It is not a quick process each time. Prayers involved so actual times... More

It was pre-arranged by my guide. I would suggest this if you want to avoid the crowds and get personal attention.
