Mystical places in Poland

In Bulgaria we have new age publications claiming of special places with spiritual power or having specific energy here. Most of it is woo woo and new age folk tales but I'm interested are there Polish analogues? I just read about the Wawel Chakra. Are there other similar places, considered special?

Strange, but I only know about Chakra you mentioned. Probably there are such places but I have never been interested so we need to use Uncle Google now. .

Yes, however the Wawel one is special.

There are many mystical places. Drohiczyn, Mężenin and Grabarka are among them. Jasna Góra and Swięta Lipka are centres of pilgrimage.

Komorów outside Warsaw is also interesting to some.

Of course, I skipped all holy/sacred springs/wells which are numerous here. Are you interested in them?

Yes, they're also important to me. Things like wells or churches granting wishes. I know only about the importance of the Black Madonna of Częstóchowa but I haven't read it performs miracles. Brw I read the Wawel Chakra could have spared the town destruction and that the hard times for Poland started after moving the capital to Wawa.

Wow, I didn`t think of that. Funny suggestion.

Things like wells or churches granting wishes.

This article on 3 pages enumerates sacred springs and wells in Poland.

There are also some 'magnetic spots' where things, cars etc seem to roll uphill like góra Żar or Karpacz.
I'm not a physicist to explain it.

That is usually an optical illusion; there are a couple of places in Poland where it happens.

Ooops, it seems the link got deleted somehow and now when I want to bring it back, it says it doesn`t exist anymore. Strange. ?????

So, famous sacred springs one by one.
