Croatia & Medjugorje Anniversary 2021

Croatia & Medjugorje Anniversary Pilgrimage Tour

This tour is designed to get to know Croatia and the Catholic history of the country before we get to Medjugorje to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the apparition of Our Lady!

It is 2021, and since 1981 people have been coming to the little village of Medjugorje in the mountainous region of Herzegovina. Since 4o years ago, it has been a place of prayer and devotions to Our Lady, to Gospa as Croatians call her! We will join thousands of pilgrims who pray every day on the Apparition Hill, at the St. James church, or on the Cross Mountain. Medjugorje is an inspirational place of prayer, spiritual well!

This time we will also enjoy a visit to the Croatian National Marian Shrine of Marija Bistrica from 1684.

Tour will start in the capital of Croatia – Zagreb, then on to the beautiful God’s work, National Park Plitvice, numerous lakes, and waterfalls in the heart of Croatia!

The highlight of this tour will be Zagreb, National Park Plitvice, Zadar, Split & Medjugorje & the Queen Of Peace Shrine!
