The church of Saint Joseph in Raków, a district of Częstochowa, was built in the years 1926-1928. It was designed by Stefan Szyller and Wiesław Stefan Kononowicz. In 2002, the church was raised to the dignity of the Shrine of St Joseph. Noteworthy is an eclectic body of the church, referring mainly to the Baroque. Inside we find the image of the seventeenthcentury St Joseph, and in the side altar the baroque painting of St. Barbara.
Częstochowa
In Częstochowa, at Krakowska Street, there is an eclectic small palace, built in 1909. It is the former palace of Jean Motte, co-owner of a French textile factory. The usual practice of nineteenth-century entrepreneurs was to erect their residences near the company, which was from their own, but more frequently from borrowed funds. Before the First World War, the Polish Kingdom, including Częstochowa, actively participated in the development of the Russian economy. In Częstochowa, they assigned pieces of land for the houses of the French residing in Częstochowa.
Częstochowa
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.

Inside, among others, there are a beautiful altar, stained glass windows and a nice sounding organ.
