Warsaw: Czestochowa Tour

If you would like to see the religious and spiritual centre of Poland, you should definitely book our tour to Czestochowa and visit Pauline Monastery – Jasna Gora. This Sanctuary of the Blessed Virgin Mary is the most famous Polish Marian shrine and is the third-largest Catholic pilgrimage site in the world – visited by 5 million pilgrims each year. Home to the beloved miraculous icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa, the most important icon for the Catholics in Poland, depicting Madonna and Child, was probably painted in 1434 on the older Byzantine icon. Monastery itself was built in 1382 and witnessed great historical events, such as victorious defense against the Swedes in 1655.
