pickup at your Krakow accommodations or another location of your choice. Chat with your driver and relax in the comfort of a private vehicle on the drive to Czestochowa, located about 68 miles (110 km) from Krakow.
When you arrive at the Jasna Góra monastery, learn about the history of the popular pilgrimage site on a private guided tour in the language of your choice. Founded by Pauline monks who emigrated from Hungary in the 14th century, the monastery has been recognized by three different popes thanks to its resilient story and sacred Black Madonna painting. See the venerated work and hear about the miracles attributed to it in the Chapel of The Virgin of Jasna Góra. You’ll also see the Church of the Holy Cross and defensive walls and gates, which withstood a 17th-century siege by the Swedish army against all odds.
Relax and reflect on the ride back to Kraków in the afternoon, where the 8-hour tour concludes with drop-off back at your original departure point.
