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.
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.

namely the Museum of Zdzislaw Beksiński in the City Art
Gallery. The works presented here come from the
collection of the artist’s friends - Anna and Piotr
