At the beginning of the nineteenth century, there were two
towns – Częstochowa and Nowa Częstochowa, also called
Częstochówka, both situated at Jasna Góra. They merged
into one urban organism in 1826. The new, fourth most
populated city of Congress Poland needed a town hall. It was
erected between 1828 and 1836, according to the design of
Franciszek Reinstein. After the rebuilding in 1908, it features
the Eclectic style. Currently, it houses the Częstochowa
The Avenue of the Blessed Virgin Mary, also known
simply as "Aleje" – the Avenues, is the main and
elegant street of Częstochowa. Traditionally the entire
artery is divided into the First, Second and Third
Avenues. Between the two-lane roadways, there is a
promenade, along which numerous pilgrimages head
for the Jasna Góra monastery. Along the avenue we
will see a number of old houses built predominately in
the Classicist style.
"Matches in the box labeled with a black cat are probably known to every household in Poland. But few know where and how they are manufactured. You will the answers to these questions in the Museum of the Production of Matches in Częstochowa. It is situated in the oldest, operating Polish match factory, whose traditions date back to 1882. In the museum you can see the whole process of production, an exhibition of sculptures made from one match, and even a documentary film of 1913!"
The church of Saint James in Częstochowa has an interesting
history. Originally, there was a sixteenth-century chapel of
the same patron, and in its place, a brick church was built in
the following century. During the partitions, on the site of the
demolished chapel, tsarist authorities erected an Orthodox
church of Saints Cyril and Methodius, which was somewhat a
demonstration of power. After being returned to the parish
of Saint James, the building was rebuilt, but has retained the
characteristic features of the neo-Byzantine style.

Bardzo klimatyczne miejsce niedaleko alei NMP w Częstochowie. Ciekawe menu łączące elementy tradycyjnej kuchni francuskiej i polskiej - zarówno fois gras jak i gołąbki. Wszystko świeże i pyszne, z opowieści właściciela - pasjonaty kulinarnego - można dowiedzieć się, że feta właśnie przyjechała z targu we Francji, a szare wino z zaprzyjaźnionej winnicy.
