Alan Rogers Review

Czestochowa’s main claim to fame is the famous Jasna Góra monastery, one of Europe’s most important pilgrimage centres. Camp 76 is located right behind the huge monastery car and coach park, on a slight slope with level pitches of grass and sand and some hardstandings. Pitches on one field are laid out in a circle, in the other along tarmac roads. Pitch size depends on the amount of visitors. Electricity boxes determine pitches which are otherwise not marked or numbered. There is room for about 400 units with the many mature trees, which enhance the site, giving shade in some parts.

The icon of the Black Madonna, displayed in the monastery, has attracted thousands of pilgrims for 600 years and still does today because it is said to have healing powers. This site could make a useful night stop when passing through or for a day or two if visiting the monastery but it may be better not be here around 14/15, 25/26 August or 7/8 September – the site will be crowded with over 2,000 pilgrim visitors who come mostly on foot from all over the country.
