"While in Częstochowa, it is worth visiting the Prof.
Wacław Sakwa Gallery of Art Casting. Here, we will see
a collection of antique and contemporary art castings
made in various techniques. The most precious exhibit
in the collection is a fifteenth-century bell. Prof.
Wacław Sakwa, the patron of the gallery, served,
among others, as rector of the Silesian University of
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 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.
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 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.
