This full-day tour of Czestochowa starts with a hotel pickup from Lodz a little before 9a.m. For this tour, you can choose your group size from one to eight people (prices vary). During the day, you’ll enjoy a basic lunch at a local restaurant.
Once you get into your vehicle, sit and relax on the hour-and-a-half drive over to the city. Your main visit is to the Jasna Góra Monastery, which is known to be quite busy daily. It’s one of the world’s largest Catholic pilgrimage sites. That might be because you can catch sight of some of Pope John Paul II’s votive items there, such as a golden rose he gave to Jasna Góra and part of one of his cassocks that’s stained with blood from an assassination attempt.
You can also see the Black Madonna painting of the Virgin Mary, which has been credited for several miracles, including the saving of the monastery during a 17th-century Swedish invasion. Your day ends with a car ride back to Lodz.
