Jasna Gora Monastery is the most important pilgrimage place in the whole Poland. The sanctury with defensive walls was built in 14th century. Black Madonna’s ikon in Czestochowa is together with us for last 600 years. It is consider to be as one of the main symbols of Poland, Polish faith, history and values.
For those people who believes, the Icon of Black Madonne has been the cause of many miracles in the centuries. The Black Madonna is named Queen of Poland. This place has a special meaning in the polish history. Swedish attacked Poland in 1655 they conquered almost all country for 5 years, except the monastery in Czestochowa and it was the turning point.
Every year millions of pilgrims come here to see the famous “Black Madonna “, a shrine of the Virgin Mary. The Miraculous Icon is open for pilgrims from the early morning till the noon time and then once in the afternoon.
