Travel Tips from people who've been to Czestochowa
Częstochowa is the Poland's religious capital. You can visit the well-known monastery Jasna Góra and enjoy a stroll through the biggest street - NMP Avenue - with all the brand name shops and restaurants. There is also a very intersting but not very popular heritage park in Raków (eastern district).

We intended to go there just for one day and stayed 3 days. The prayerful atmosphere, the time you can spend in the cosy chapel, and the cheap accommodation made us stay. By cheap accommodation I meant, that it was save to sleep in the car (or if it is warm, even outdside) on the parking. There are bathrooms with showers.

Czestochowa is the most reverend place for the Polish. It is a place of legend, the first city where the Swedish invaders were routed ending the so called "flood" (potop in Polish). It is said that it was a miracle sent by the st. Mary.
