The city is known for the famous Pauline monastery of Jasna Góra, which is the home of the Black Madonna painting (Polish: Jasnogórski Cudowny obraz Najświętszej Maryi Panny Niepokalanie Poczętej), a shrine to the Virgin Mary.

Every year, millions of pilgrims from all over the world come to Częstochowa to see it.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.

    • Unfortunately, I don’t know, but one of the commentators here said it was close by them and they’d been there, so maybe a response will be forthcoming? I, too, would be curious.

  1. Hi
    This depot is not abandoned, it’s still functional. However those electric multiple units were withdrawn from service and scrapped long time ago.
