Welcome to City of Medugorje

The town of Medugorje in Bosnia and Herzegovina is located between two mountains near the border of Croatia. There are nearly 4,000 people that make up the population of the town, which is almost entirely Roman Catholic. The city of Medugorje has been in existence since before the Middle Ages, and there are still structures that survive to this day. Visitors to the area will also find plenty of architectural examples of other eras of history, with specific emphasis on Roman. Though many structures were damaged during the wars, there has been loving restoration of many throughout recent years.

Some of the most popular tourist attractions in Medugorje are religious in nature, with St. James Church being the first and Apparition Hill as the second. Apparition Hill has been a site of great importance since 1981, when six teenagers claimed that the Virgin Mary appeared to them. Visitors have since flocked to the area from all over the world to see visions for themselves. Nature is another popular attraction, with thousands of people visiting to hike the mountains that surround Medugorje or to visit the Kravice Waterfall for hiking, fishing, and swimming activities.
