Know More about this tour

The place gained special importance for the Poles after the “Lwów Oath” of king John II Casimir on the 1st of April 1657. It was on that day that the king proclaimed the Blessed Virgin Mary the Queen of Poland and in his prayers entrusted Poland under her protection against the invasion of the Swedish and Hungarian troops.
The monastery played an important role during the “Deluge” in 1655 when it withstood the siege of the Swedish army. The monastery’s prior at the time was Father Augustyn Kordecki. The defense of Jasna Góra was a triumph of religious and symbolic significance.
During the times of the People’s Republic of Poland, on the 26th of August 1956, the Jasna Góra Oaths of the Polish Nation (written by Primate Stefan Wyszyński) were taken in the presence of about 1 million pilgrims.
The icon of the Blessed Mary also had a special meaning for John Paul II, who, already as the Pope, visited Jasna Góra six times. After the fateful attempt on his life in 1981, John Paul II offered his belt, with blood stains and bullet marks, as a gift to the Virgin Mary. In 1983 he prayed in here thanking the Queen of Poland for saving his life. In 2006 also Pope Benedict visited Jasna Góra.
During your tour of the monastery, you will have a chance to see: the Treasury, the Knights Chamber, the Nation’s Remembrance Chapel, the Refectory, the Tower, the Golgotha and the Stations of the Cross.

  • Our trip to Jasna Gora Monastery was wonderful! Maciej of Poland-Active picked us up at our hotel promptly at 9am. He drove by way of Eagle's Nest Drive to show us a number of castles and ruins. He was very accommodating, stopping and letting us take pictures, offering to take our pictures. Told us a lot of information about Poland as well as the area we were driving through. Pointed out things that we would have never caught on our own. His English was very good and we were able to have a pleasant conversation on our drive. Our tour at the monastery was at 12:30p and that was done by on of the English speaking monk. That was wonderful too. Gave us so much information and history. He was very personable. We felt very privileged to be able to see Our Lady of Jasna Gora Icon and be able to witness the services going on. Afterwards,Maciej suggested we stay and see the unveiling of Icon for the afternoon session so we were able to see that too. Pointed our a few things that that Father didn't too. Very beautiful place. History is so rich. Took a different route back to see a couple more castles. Suggested stopping for lunch at a very good restaurant--authentic Polish food. Unfortunately can't remember the name of the restaurant. Got back to Krakow early evening. Just a wonderful day!!!!
