Visit the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp and one of the most important European places of worship of Our Lady – the sanctuary of the Black Madonna of Czestochowa. It is possible to see both sites on one day, without compromise on time spent at each venue.
This tour – which is rather a pilgrimage in fact – starts with a visit of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp (ca. 1h 15 min drive from Krakow). Our English speaking driver will take a very good care of you for all the time during the tour. You will enter through a fast track entrance at Auschwitz so you avoid regular crowds in the ticket hall. A driver will stay with you until you meet your local guide at the Museum and join your tour. After about two hours guided tour at Auschwitz I and a short break you will be taken to Auschwitz II-Birkenau where you will continue your guided visit for about an hour (a guided tour in English at Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum is not included in the total price, entrance tickets are paid additionally).
After visiting a lunch break is possible (optional, the price of lunch is not included in the total cost of the tour).
The next item of that whole day tour is a visit to one of the most important sacred sites in Poland and Europe – the Sanctuary of the Black Madonna of Czestochowa – Queen of Poland. The sanctuary is one of the most important places of worship of Our Lady and has always been the main centre of pilgrimage in Poland. The site is also very well known under the name of Jasna Gora – where the sanctuary together with Pauline Monastery is located. There is a famous, miraculous Icon of the Black Madonna of Czestochowa and there is a special book kept in the monastery of Jasna Gora, where many miracles that have occurred before the Miraculous Icon have been listed. During visiting the sanctuary you will see the main basilica, the chapel where the Holy Icon of Our Lady is placed, the Way of the Cross of Jasna Gora, the treasury and the 600th Anniversary of Jasna Gora Museum. You will also have time for prayer and/or for lunch at ‘the pilgrim-house’. The Sanctuary of Jasna Gora was among the favourite destinations of John Paul II. Every year it is visited by a few millions of pilgrims and tourists from Poland, Europe and from all over the world – be one of them.
