Częstochowa is a city in the northern part of the Silesian Voivodship on the Warta River but historically, culturally and ethnically, it is still located in the Lesser Poland voivodeship.
Over the centuries, numerous buildings have been constructed in the city. Currently, they usually have the character of monuments and tourist attractions. The most important are: historic tenement houses and the urban layout of the historical centers of the Old and New Częstochowa and the Avenue of the Blessed Virgin Mary that connects them. The largest and most visited of the Częstochowa monuments is th Paulite monastic complex of Jasna Góra, and the tourism associated with it is primarily religious. In the city there is the Basilica of the Birth of the Virgin Mary and Jasna Góra Monastery with the miraculous image of Our Lady of Częstochowa – the main Marian place of worship and pilgrimage in Poland.Visiting the city should start with the foundations, also in the literally, because some of the attractions are located underground. Częstochowa is not only limestone, but also iron ore. At the end of the 1960s – thousands of people were working underground. You will learn about the underground work and why it was stopped in the Museum of Iron Ore Mining.
Museum of Match Manufacturing in which you can move to the world of many years ago to see how popular Black Cat matches were made. This is one of those museums in which you certainly will not be bored.
The Miniature Park of Sacral Monuments also has something magical about it. The miniatures are made on a scale of 1:25 and during the walk through the park on a distance of 1.5 kilometers you will see 17 of the most important for Christians objects. There is also the world’s largest statue of Pope John Paul II.Its miniature is 14 m high.
But Częstochowa is not only about the biggest things. In the city center, it is worth to see the narrowest tenement house at the Avenue of the Blessed Virgin Mary 71. There is the “Bajer” bar, whose storefront and door are almost the entire width of the building. For those who prefer physical activity over peaceful walks, a network of cycle paths will certainly be an alternative.
The most representative promenade in Częstochowa encourages you to take a stroll along the Avenue of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Here, you will find benches of well-known and liked people.
For art lovers, the Beksiński Museum is recommended, in which you can see the works not shown in Poland so far. The history enthusiasts will be able to visit, for example, the Archaeological Reserve of the Lusatian culture.
The Jewish cemetery is also a climatic and worth seeing place. It is located on the 9th place of the largest facilities of this type in Poland. It covers almost 9 hectares.
