“Unfortunately we went to Czestochowa on Sunday and it wasn’t good idea. Church was extremely crowded and we had to wait in a long queue to see Black Madonna. Thankfully our guide was very knowledgeable so waiting wasn't so boring. If you provide such great guides for every tour I would recommend you to anyone! We really enjoyed Wadowice, it's very peaceful and relaxing place”
