I visit Czestochowa regularly several times a year because this is where my husband comes from and where his family live. There is one more thing, apart from Jasna Gora, that makes this town special to me. It is beautifully situated at the edge of what is one of my favourite parts of Poland: Krakowsko- Czestochowska Upland. It takes just twenty minutes and you are away from the city's hustle in a completely different world of rocks, old castles and wonderful sights. Jura ( this is what it is commonly called) offers everybody something to suit their tastes. It's a great place for cyclists, rock-climbers, horse riders and all those who love walking.
