Međugorje

Medjugorje is one of the most famous Catholic sanctuaries in the world, located near Čitluk, in the southern part of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It has about 4300 inhabitants, and it has become famous through the apparitions of the Virgin Mary, which began to appear in 1981 as a phenomenon. Since then, this landmark, along with Sarajevo, is one of our most visited tourist centers, visited annually by around one million Catholics from all over the world. Unlike the Marian shrine in French Lourdes, which with six million tourist-believers became a true commercial paradise for domestic caterers, the Medjugorje Sanctuary has still retained its original charm in which pilgrims find peace in the faith. The center of the gathering at the Shrine of the Queen of Peace, as officially called the Medjugorje Sanctuary, is the church of St. Jakova in the center of town
