The first Gothic church of Saint Sigismund in Częstochowa was built as a parish church, probably in the first half of the fifteenth century. It served as a parish church only until the end of the nineteenth century. Its today's look is the result of an eighteenth-century reconstruction. At that time, it was rebuilt in the Baroque style. It is a three-nave church with two towers at the front. In the adjacent seventeenthcentury monastery building, there is now a parsonage.
The brewery in Częstochowa is probably the oldest industrial facility in the city. Admittedly, beer has been brewed at Jasna Góra from the sixteenth century onwards, but the first industrial brewery was opened in 1840. This brewery boomed in the early decades of the last century, when it was owned by Karol Szwede. We can see historic buildings from that time, including an old malt house and a water tower at Ogrodowa Street, next to the Cathedral of Częstochowa.
The Archcathedral Basilica of the Holy Family - from 1992 on, the seat of the archbishop of Częstochowa - is one of the churches in Poland, which were built for the longest time. The first earthwork started in 1901 and the towers were consecrated in 1997. The size of the neo-Gothic church is impressive. The towers rise to more than 80 meters! Inside, among others, there are a beautiful altar, stained glass windows and a nice sounding organ.
