Journey to Poland's spiritual heart in the town of Czestochowa. Retrace the footsteps of millions of pilgrims who have been coming here for hundreds of years to gaze upon what is considered a miraculous image of the "Black Madonna," housed in the town's Jasna Gora Monastery.

Enjoy the scenic drive from Krakow and arrive in one of the most important pilgrimage sites in the modern world. Wander through this spiritual town and into the monastery, perched high on a hill overlooking the picturesque town. Marvel at the painting while hearing about the stories and legends that surround it from your expert guide.

Next drive along the "Trail of the Eagle's Nests," a series of watchtowers and castles. After multiple wars and weathering, most of these are now in ruins, but some have stood the test of time and are remarkably intact. Stop at one of the best-preserved castles along the route, the Pieskowa Castle. Situated in a strategic location high above the trees, this former 14th-century fort was rebuilt 200 years later as an opulent Renaissance home.
