The Holy Virgin Mary Avenue (Aleje Najświętszej Maryi Panny)

One of the most representative streets of Częstochowa leading from St. Sigismund’s Church to the Parks near the Jasna Góra hill thus joining the Old and the New City of Częstochowa. It was here that from the mid-19th century the most valuable public buildings and residences of local factory owners were built, with façades richly decorated with bay windows, balconies and other architectural details. In the Avenue one can also see houses of the city middle class. Those historical buildings on both sides of the Avenue remind us what the city life looked like in the not so remote past.
