After picking you up at the pre-arranged meeting point or at your hotel, we'll begin our journey with a drive through the border between the Dalmatian coast and the hinterland. We'll stop for a visit to enjoy its famous Blue and Red lakes on our way to the ancient Ottoman city of Mostar. Here our local tour guide introduces us to the great history of this city known as “the window to the Orient”. We'll visit the Old Bazaar, full of picturesque shops and craft workshops, and the Mosque. After this, we'll enjoy a walk along the famous Turkish bridge from the 16thC and you'll have lots of free time for exciting shopping and the opportunity to taste authentic Bosnian specialties like cevapi, pita or burek. Then it's off to experience the wild beauty of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the walled town of Pocitel, a UNESCO World Heritage site on our way to our final destination, one of the most-visited pilgrimage centers in all of Europe - Medjugorje. For believers and those who are looking for spiritual renewal, the most compelling site here is the Mount of Appearance where Virgin Mary is reported to have appeared to children in 1981 for the first time. Our tour guide will help you understand and appreciate why this place of peace and compassion has become such a world-wide destination for pilgrims. As an option, you may also enjoy some wonderful swimming in nearby Kravice waterfalls. After this beautiful experience we return home.
