Jasna Gora is a monestary and cathedral. It is where the (miraculous?) painting of the Black Madonna is - and that is what Cestochowa is about.

God, it is the worst place on earth. I know the town very well indeed. Nothing could ever improve the God forsaken place. My favorite place there is the railway station with a train going out over the boarder!

Ask me, I can tell you everything you want to know. I know the town almost like the back of my hand. A dreadful place, sorry for telling you that but it is so gray and sad. Could you not change and go to the Czech Republic instead?

Do you mean your spelling of the word, huj by any chance? Very bad mistake in Polish. Still, you can not expect me to get everything right in every language all of the time. Polish, English and Russian what more do you want from me!

No doubt he'll have some reply to this!

How good is your spelling in all these languages

Any way, Czestochowa is still a dump all the same and I thank God that I am a thousand miles from the bloody town-I prefer dreadful spelling than a dose of that place!

Michal,

To add balance to what you say. When was the last time you were in Czestochowa ?

and do you know something about the university?

I would say that it must definatelly be true. I was unaware that there was a university in Czestochowa, though there was the Polytechnic of Czestochowa, I presume that it is the same thing under a new name? Czestochowa was never anything special but it is even more of a less important sort of a place now as it has lost its province capital status-it is now just a part of Slask. They do say that the petrol is now the most expensive in all of Poland now. There are, or were two railway stations, so when you buy train tickets to Warsaw, make sue that you go to the right one! The main university, returning to the subject of study was always Wroclaw but it costs money to stay away from home, hence people would agree to study close to home. The state swimming pool was quite nice from what I remember-in fact there may be more than one of course now. The main thorough fair, A.S.M, I think it is called for short is nice in summer and you can walk up to the Black Madona of Czestochowa though God only knows how many times you would want to repeat the experience. If you are young and like a little night life you can try a night club called Rura (the Tube), I know the people who run it. It is located just off the main thorough fair on the right as you walk up towards the Madona-just ask. You can register for a state dentist but the fillings just keep falling out. I got so sick of going back I just left the hole in the end and waited to get back to England. England's dentistry costs twice the price of Poland but what is the point of buying cheap rubbish!?

As a P.S., and without a car, I do not know how to get there but there is a little place called Olsztyn-not much there except the ruins of an old castle but it would certainly be fresh air after Czestochowa!

All what languages? You only typed in English.

And my spelling is very good, thank you.

I do not know but I think it has something to do with an exchange programme within the E.U. It gives students at British Universities an opportunity to spend some of their study period at an authorized overseas university and vise versa, students from Poland and other countries can count credit points from study in the United Kingdom towards their degree programes when back home. I think it is a little bit like trying to copy the American credit system.

If you are ever in Czestochowa in early June there is always a nice open air music festival that takes place in Mstow, not far from Czestochowa. I have not been for many years and have heard that it has not been very good over the last few years but I thought that it was great fun. A talent show, live music, a clothes show and comedy acts, it is really well worth checking it out should you be there at that time in the year.

Yeah, cool place. There is a path called "Orli Szlak" that runs through it and yearly scout get-togethers camping in front the ruins.

Actually, as I remember it it was not a very nice day, cold with a nasty wind but probably in the summer and a little luck...who knows? I do remember the place, though and walked all over the hills there. As far as I remember, there is not really that much to do there but it might make a nice day out from the hell hole of Czestochowa. He should try out the time table of the P.K.P. bus services.

The whole Jura Krakowso-częstochowska region could be very interesting for people that like to spend their free time in an active way like bike and horse riding or rock-climbing... Yeah there are some incredible rocks to climb in that region, plus a lot of medieval festivals take place in the remainings of the castles there, but I guess it always depends on what individuals like to do...

I was only there once very briefly. My brother in law took me there in his car. I can remember walking down to the road where there were a few shops if I remember rightly. I think that we went for about an hour or so-not very long at all. I remember that I liked the little castle in Czluchow and I also was taken to a nice castle of a sort (in very good condition) near to Bochnia, there were even the old canons still there, which impressed me, on another occasion but I can not remember what it was called now. One year soon, I must try and improve on my rusty Polish and come again and see how things have changed.

nightlife is ok, there is a disco called Don Kichot which plays mainly latin dance stuff. it's free to get in for ladies and about 10zl for guys.

Some nice countryside a short drive away but I'd have to agree the place is a bit grey.

I have just returned last night from a 10 day stay in Czestochowa. I visit there nearly every year !

Personally, I love the place but then again I don't live there.

Merged: Hostels/Hotels in Czestochowa?

Hello everyone,

I am planning on visiting Czestochowa in the near future. Could any of you recommend me some places to stay at? Preferably somewhere cheap, as I am not Bill Gates.

Thanks in advance for your replies.

If you want really cheap then try the Polonia hotel but I warn you the place is a bit of a dump.

Type in "noclegi Czestochowa" into google.pl and see what comes up.
