Medjugorje became famous in 1981 after six teenagers claimed they saw the Virgin Mary on top of a hill. Since then, it has been regarded as an unofficial Catholic pilgrimage town, attracting large numbers of visitors each year. Expect Italian coffee shops and gelaterias on every corner and crowds bustling for a seat at mass in St James Church. Climb Apparition Hill for the best view of Bosnia’s famous Catholic pilgrimage site, then book yourself into one of these quality hotels in Medjugorje.
