Medjugorje – the town between the mountains

Stock Photography By Lars-Olof Nilsson

More than a million pilgrims visit this little town in Hercegovina in former Yugoslavia. It is best known for the apparitions when the Virgin Mary reportedly showed herself to six young people in 1981, a phenomenon not officially approved by the Catholic Church but under investigation by a church commission. Large crowds attend mass at the Church of St James the Apostle, and many walk up Krizevac, the Cross Mountain, a rocky path with the Stations of the Cross, up to a crucifix erected in 1933.
