Among the Tatra forests, near Rusinowa Clearing and the peak of Gęsia Szyja Mountain in 1860 Our Lady appeared in the spruce branches to a young shepherdess from Groń, Marysia Murzańska.
In the course of time, a roadside shrine with a figurine of Our Lady was placed there. The later Pope often came here during his mountain hikes – his skied to Wiktorówki Clearing for the last time in the winter of 1978. Pope John Paul II wished to visit Our Lady, the so-called Queen of the Tatra Mountains in 1997, but the helicopter carrying him to Morskie Oko Lake only flew over Wiktorówki and Rusinowa Clearing. Today, a beautiful wooden chapel in the Zakopane style is located on Wiktorówki Clearing and masses of pilgrims continue to reach it by hiking trails (the only way to get here).
