Medjugorje Excursions - cultural and religious heritage

Medjugorje Excursions

 

....for a better understanding of the people and Medjugorje country!

 

The story of Medjugorje is much older than the story of the apparition of Our Lady in Medjugorje. What is the country's background where "Heaven came down to earth..." and who are the people who live there, what is their history, cultural and religious heritage, and why they hold on so firmly to their faith despite the horrible troubles it caused them?  

Medjugorje guides will give you a comprehensive presentation of the history of Medjugorje village & parish and the history of the apparitions of Gospa! To better understand the country, you will need to explore the surroundings and "meet" with the circumstances that played an important role in the lives of the people of Medjugorje.

Herzegovina as a southern part of country Bosnia and Herzegovina offers amazing natural attractions "a beautiful work of God," monasteries & churches, oriental old town and architectural masterpieces in Mostar, like the bridge form the 16th century, middle-age towers and fortresses all over the country that today witness devastating clashes between cultures of East and West!

We can offer various itineraries that will match your interests and curiosity. This can be an excellent restaurant & wine tasting to excellent local cuisine often inspired by the oriental influence. This can be a visit to the local natural attractions, rivers, and waterfalls, kayaking along the green & smooth rivers, visit the archeological museums or visit monasteries that are, for people of Herzegovina, of great religious and cultural importance.

Many pilgrims will be happy with our excursions to Croatia, especially those who come to Medjugorje directly from Dubrovnik, Split, or Sarajevo airports without the stops for a city tour of any of those three major airports.

 

We will be happy to offer day excursions to Dubrovnik or Split in Croatia, and both excursions are about 10 - 12 hours duration.

 

Please request in advance for proposals of the extension of your tour to Dubrovnik or Split. We will be pleased to assist you in your plans after Medjugorje!
