Discovering Szczawnica

I hadn’t heard of Szczawica until I used BlaBla Car (a car sharing website) from Wroclaw back to Krakow.

Our Lady of Czestochowa: The Black Madonna

Since I wrote about Częstochowa earlier in the week, it seemed appropriate to complete it with a Foto Friday of the Icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa* (the Black Madonna), which is the main reason so many people, pilgrims and tourists alike, flock to the city. As always, I like to give you a brief …
