Our trip to Jasna Gora Monastery was wonderful! Maciej of Poland-Active picked us up at our hotel promptly at 9am. He drove by way of Eagle's Nest Drive to show us a number of castles and ruins. He was very accommodating, stopping and letting us take pictures, offering to take our pictures. Told us a lot of information about Poland as well as the area we were driving through. Pointed out things that we would have never caught on our own. His English was very good and we were able to have a pleasant conversation on our drive. Our tour at the monastery was at 12:30p and that was done by on of the English speaking monk. That was wonderful too. Gave us so much information and history. He was very personable. We felt very privileged to be able to see Our Lady of Jasna Gora Icon and be able to witness the services going on. Afterwards,Maciej suggested we stay and see the unveiling of Icon for the afternoon session so we were able to see that too. Pointed our a few things that that Father didn't too. Very beautiful place. History is so rich. Took a different route back to see a couple more castles. Suggested stopping for lunch at a very good restaurant--authentic Polish food. Unfortunately can't remember the name of the restaurant. Got back to Krakow early evening. Just a wonderful day!!!!
