Medjugorje is a town in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
It’s been an unofficial place of Catholic pilgrimage since the Virgin Mary allegedly appeared on Apparition Hill in 1981. There is a ‘Queen of Peace’ statue marking the site and one in front of Saint James Church. Liquid has been said to drip from the ‘Risen Christ’ statue near the church.
If you are a practising catholic the experience is very much a personal one, each person will have a different take.
Ceremonies take place in and around the parish church, throughout the day and into the evening that you might find of interest and worthwhile, you can even attend a mass.
Medjugorje has been fairly commercialised with expected tourist shops, restaurants and hotels. A guided tour can also be taken.
A day trip here could be taken with a visit to Mostar, (a 40 min drive further North ) or Kravice waterfalls, a great way to cool off (30 min drive south bound).
