Czestochowa The Essential
Interesting
Czestochowa is at the heart of a rugged landscape dotted with ruined castles - impressive eagles' nest raised up by Casimir the Great in the 14C. Among the most outstanding castles are Olsztyn and Ogrodzienec. This is a pilgrimage town and has been an important centre of Polish Catholic spirituality since Ladislas, Duke of Opole, founded the monasteries of d'Olsztyn and Ogrodzienec, fortified in the 17C and celebrated for the Icon of the Virgin, venerated by many worshippers.
