    Pauline Monastery
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Millions of pilgrims from all over the world come to Częstochowa to see it. Czestochowa is a City of over 760 years of history, located in the heart of southern Poland, on the borderland of two geographical regions: Silesian Upland and Krakowsko – Czestochowska Upland. The city of Czestochowa is an important religious sanctuary connected with the cult of icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa, better known as the Black Madonna. There have been reports for centuries of miraculous events occurring to those who made a pilgrimage to the unique portrait. While the portrait is what the pilgrims mostly focus on, also the votive offerings collected in the monastery given to the Black Madonna over the centuries are worth seeing. Gifts range from swords and sceptres to rosaries made of dried bread in concentration camp.

Krakow Shuttle Tours
Jun. 2019 • Friends
I have to say without a doubt this company is excellent but special word of thanks goes to Thomas & especially Simon. We booked various tours Aushwitz, John paul 2 & also the memorial museum tour. Both our drivers were both curtious. Nothing was any bother did everything to help. Cant fault the 2 guys in any way. All our tours were special to us and can only say a big thanks to the guys. The final tour which was the Black Madonna was exceptional. I think both guys should get the recognition they deserve.
