Krakow: Tour to Czestochowa

Czestochowa is the most important place on the map of Poland for Catholics since 15th century when impressive Pauline Monastery of Jasna Gora was raised on the hill and became shrine of Virgin Mary with Miraculous Painting of Black Madonna. This sacred icon was saved during the Siege of Jasna Gora in 1655 when during war with Sweden small group of monks with help of local volunteers managed to fought off the much larger army of invaders. Today millions of pilgrims from Poland and from all over the world come here to visit this important Sanctuary.
