What You Can Expect
The legend says that in 1981 the Virgin Mary appeared to six children on a hillside in Medjugorje. Since then, the small, rural town has become one of the most important European pilgrimage sites. More than one million people from all over the world come here every year to pray.
Next, visit the Apparition Hill, where Our Lady is said to have appeared. The climb is a bit challenging, but you will be rewarded by reaching the impressive sky-high cross on the hilltop. You will also have the option to attend a service in the St. James church, or just relax and enjoy the peacefulness in the Garden of Contemplation.
Continue with free time to explore the city on your own and to grab a snack at a local cafe or restaurant, before you make your way back to Dubrovnik.
My family of 4 (2 teenagers) very much enjoyed our tour of Medjugorje. Our guide, Nicolina, was great. She narrated on the bus while we drove between Dubrovnik and Medjugorje. She was experienced and real, not canned and boring. We not only learned a lot about Medjugorje, but also about Croatia ... the history and culture. We recommend this tour!
I thoroughly enjoyed my day trip to Medugorie. The transport was punctual and the guide on the bus informative - pointing out significant landmarks and historical facts as the journey progressed. The guide at Medjugorje was excellent - very knowledgeable and willing to give each memeber of the trip time to ask personal questions. The only douwn-side was the ari-conditionaing on the minibus was not effective.
