A few months before the Second World War, the
Częstochowa region became one of the places where
fortifications were being constructed fairly quickly. In
fact, their plans date back as early as 1934. They were
developed by Major Jan Wańkowicz. The fortifications,
erected by September 1939, played a certain role in
the defensive war. There are 12 such objects, which
have been preserved in good condition to this day.
The Museum of Coins and Medals Commemorating John
Paul II in Częstochowa was established at the initiative of
Krzysztof Witkowski, chairman of President Electronics
Poland. The museum is a kind of a votive offering for the
recovery after a stroke. It is also an homage paid to John
Paul II. There are 5500 exhibits in the collections.
"The Museum of Railway History in Częstochowa was founded in 2001, and it was originally housed in a room located on the first floor of the Stradom Częstochowa railroad station. The museum will be taken on a journey into the past and see, for example, an old ticket office with urnishings, old railroad uniforms, documents and photographs, lamps, rails, maps or plates of steam engines and other machinery. The museum is located on the Industrial Monuments Route of the Silesian Voivodeship."
Residents of Częstochowa and visitors to the city can
admire images of the sky and astronomical phenomena
at the most modern planetary in Poland, operating at the
Institute of Physics of the Jan Długosz Academy. The
building itself was erected in the years 1990-2000, but a
digital projector was brought to Częstochowa not until
2005. Science lovers can see here fascinating shows, as
well as participate in an unusual physics lesson.
The church of Saints Barbara and Andrew the Apostle is
located in the vicinity of the monastery of Jasna Góra,
with which its history is closely associated. According to
tradition, in the fifteenth century, the picture of the
Black Madonna was stolen, and the damaged picture
was abandoned south of the walls of the monastery. It
was at this site that a small church was erected in the
seventeenth century. Its distinguishing feature is the
cylindrical tower. The church is also known as the
Sanctuary of the Hurt Icon of the Lady of Częstochowa.
