Experience

Highlights
  • Enjoy a day trip to Pieskowa Skala Castle and Czestochowa from Krakow
  • See the famous 'Black Madonna' painting at Jasna Gora in Czestochowa
  • Stop in Pieskowa Skala to admire a 16th-century castle

Full description
Our tour takes you to a place which receives around 5 million visitors a year (including over 150,000 pilgrims on foot).

After arriving at the monastery, we will visit the chapel of the miraculous painting of the Black Madonna, which is the embodiment of the attachment to the Cult of Mary so typical of the Catholic faith in Poland. Next we visit the Basilica, which is the main church of the monastery.

You can also visit the 600th-Anniversary Museum and the Treasury on your own, if you wish, or attend Mass while others on the tour have a break for lunch and a visit to a souvenir shop.

On the way back we alter our route slightly to admire the most spectacular limestone rock formations typical of the Kraków-Częstochowa Uplands. This allows us to visit the only remaining castle of the so called Eagle Nest Trail at Pieskowa Skała.
