Summary – “Czestochowa is one of the most religous places in Poland”
Poland is 98% Catholic and so it would only be natural for religion to play an important role in Polish life and culture. One of the most important national shrines in Poland is in the city of Czestochowa, which is seen as a very symbolic place and over the centuries it has been final destination for many religious pilgrimages.
The “Black Madona” – a gothic painting of our Lay, is housed in the Jasna Gora Monastery, and it is one of the mysterious images that have helped Czestochowa become one of the most important destinations alongside Rome, Lordes and Fatima. The tour to the Monastery also includes the Miraculous Picture Chapel and the Basilica.
The return leg of this tour runs along the Eagles Nests’ Trail, which is an historical system of towers, castles and watch towers that once protected Poland’s southern frontiers. Today it is mainly in ruins but some parts have survived. Pieskowa Skala – the former 14th century fortress, is one example, today it houses the Museum of the National Wawel Art Collections. Not too far away is the Club of Hercules, an amazing nature 25-meter high rock formation, characteristic of the Ojcow National Park.
