When you think of huge beautiful religious places to visit, specially if you're not a very religious person, Jasna Gora is probably not even on your list. Maybe Vatican City, Santiago de Compostela, Lourdes, ... but this is definitely a place to add to the said list. We happened to go there on the 2nd of November, and due to... More

This is a holy place that everyone should visit while visiting Poland. It does have a real significance for all the polish people. People often goes there on pilgrimage and is accessible to everyone.

I recommend staying PAST a weekend, so one has the experience of quiet and solitude at Jasna Gora. I arrived on Sunday morning; spent a very crowded, busy day there, doubting whether I would ever get a glimpse of the holy icon. The Monastery opens at 5 a.m., of which I highly recommend profiting. I went there at 6 a.m.... More

I really can't fully express in words what visiting Jasna Gora Monastery, where the miraculous image of Our Lady of Czestochowa, meant to me. It had been a dream of mine for a number of years to make a pilgrimage out to visit her. The monastery is just breathtaking and not because of the physical building in itself, but because... More

I am not one of the most religious people in the world but still it was quite touching visiting to Jasna Góra with its hundreds of believers. We booked a private tour with one of the sisters since we only had a little over one hour there, and it was fundamental having her explanations of the meaning of symbols to... More

quite amazing to see how many people this place attracts off season. That said the visit is very enjoyable, the place feels very spiritual indeed and general atmosphere is great

If you are there is nice to visit. In my opinion ita not worth a detour. But if you are regligious and like fortified churches/cathedral is a nice place

We had a private guide, Father Roman, who has lived at the monastery for the last 38 years. He provided all sorts of historical information and literally got us a birds-eye view of the Black Madonna unveiling, which takes place at 1:30 p.m. daily.

I like to try to experience things that are popular with locals wherever I go, and Jasna Gora is certainly popular. We were there just before one of the main festivals and the church and chapel were all but overrun. It was all a bit chaotic, but hard not to be impressed by the scale and beauty of the place...
