Međugorje is the most famous religious destination in this part of the world and it's visited by more then a million Christians every year. If you would like to visit Međugorje while staying in Dubrovnik, there are several tours that can take you there. We highly recommend taking one of the group tours that will take you to visit Međugorje but also to Mostar, a city of great historical significance and a place where east meets west - 2 different and opposing cultures coexisting in the same city.
Međugorje is situated about 2.5 hours of driving from Dubrovnik. It could take a bit more time because you have to pass the border and enter the state of Bosna and Hercegovina. Please do not forget to bring your travel documents when taking this tour. If you would like a more personalized visit and maybe skip Mostar altogether, there are several private tours in offer that can be tailored to your exact needs. You could for example stop only in Međugorje or make some other stops such as Ston, Kravice waterfalls or Počitelj. Unlike many other pilgrimage sites, Međugorje still retained the peaceful and holy atmosphere that other sites lost due to lots of tourist crowding the area. So if you are a religious person, we highly recommend visiting Međugorje. But even if you are not, it is still interesting to see and learn the facts about this city and learn about the Marian apparitions that occurred in 1981 which where reported by 6 children. The children who are now adults report to continuously receive messages from the Virgin Mary on a monthly basis. Many other reports of signs from the Virgin Mary occurred since then by locals but visiting tourists as well.
The Catholic Church sent a commission to study the Marian apparitions, and they expressed positive findings regarding the first apparitions but expressed doubt concerning the rest. In 2017 Pope Francis, in an Interview, stated that additional studies should be performed the apparitions but that the spirituality of Međugorje cannot be denied and it's an important spiritual place for the catholic church.
There is a lot of recent talk concerning this place, and it's a great opportunity to visit it while spending your vacation in Dubrovnik.
