Description

Szymanów (Polish pronunciation: [ʂɨˈmanuf]) is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Teresin, within Sochaczew County, Masovian Voivodeship, in east-central Poland. It lies approximately 13 kilometres (8 mi) south-east of Sochaczew and 43 km (27 mi) west of Warsaw.

Marian shrine

The original marble sculpture of Our Lady of Jazłowiec was brought there in 1946, by the Immaculate Conception Sisters, fleeing Soviet occupation of Yazlovets, where the shrine had evolved since 1883 in the original "Mother House", and is now in Ukraine. A faithful copy was installed in Yazlovets in the 1990s. The current headquarters of the order has been in Szymanów since 1933.
