Poland

CMM 2005 will take place in Czestochowa, a city in the South of Poland, on the Warta River, situated on a beatiful and unique region of the Cracow-Czestochowa Upland, also called Jura, which gives you various possibilities of spending time: hiking, cycling, riding, climbing and speleology. The most attractive things to see are the ruins of mighty castles. The majority of them was built in the XIV century.

Olsztyn

Czestochowa is an important railway and industrial center, known especially for its iron and steel plant and iron-smelting works. Other industries include food processing, sawmilling, and the manufacture of chemicals, glass and textiles.

Czestochowa is a celebrated religious center, and a world-famous place of pilgrimage. Its monastery stands on the Jasna Gora [mountain of light] and contains an image of Mary known as the Black Madonna, supposedly painted by St. Luke and brought to Czestochowa in the 14th cent. In 1655, when Charles X of Sweden overran Poland, the prior and a handful of soldiers defended the monastery and its relic for 40 days until the Swedes abandoned the siege. Fired by what they thought to be a miracle, the Polish people rose to successful resistance. The event figures prominently in Henryk Sienkiewicz's novel The Deluge. The monastery was again defended against the Swedes in 1702. Venerated as the "Queen of Poland," the image became the national symbol of Poland.

Brama Jasnogórska

CMM 2005 will take place in the Czestochowa University of Technology (in Polish Politechnika Czestochowska). The Czestochowa University of Technology was formed in 1949 as High Engineering School with one faculty. At present it is a big academic centre with 14 majors on 6 faculties. Graduates of most majors can apply for a title of European Engineer. The University possess modern laboratory and learning facilities, library and good social base: dorms, gastronomic, sport and leisure centres.
