The sanctuary is located in the Pauline monastery on Jasna Góra, which has been a major goal of pilgrimages for centuries. The monastery was founded in 1382. The icon of St Mary with the Child, as the legend has it, was painted by St Luke 13 years after the death of Christ. Very soon it was ascribed miraculous powers. Its strength was also reputedly proven by the fact that monks and Polish soldiers successfully withheld the Swedish 40 day siege in the 17th century. Since that time the monastery on Jasna Góra with the icon of Black Madonna has become the country’s principal religious symbol. The first buildings appeared here in the 15th century. The monastery derives its contemporary shape predominantly from the 17th century.

At the height of summer, Poland’s fourth largest city throngs with tour groups, all manner of tourist tack and countless pavement cafés that seem to occupy every cobble of the main square.

This magical city, situated in the southeast of the country, between the Jura uplands and the Tatra Mountains, on the banks of the Wisla (Vistula) River, has one of the best-preserved medieval city centres in Europe. Dozens of churches cover almost every architectural period and are surrounded by monasteries and abbeys – walking through the Old Town streets is like drifting back through the musty pages of a historical novel.

A highlanders’ raft is made of five wooden dugouts joined together. This is how tourists travel down the rapids of the Dunajec River, admiring the most picturesque sights of the Pieniny Mountains. Every now and then the river traverses sections of breathtaking beauty. The lime peaks looming overhead soar up to 300 metres. The Dunajec meanders and it often becomes difficult to follow the direction of the watercourse. Fortunately, the highlander helmsmen know how to manage their fragile rafts, taking them safely to the final destination. The landing stage is reached after three hours of a great, unforgettable adventure.
