Međugorje, a town located in western Bosnia and Herzegovina, about 25 km southwest of Mostar and close to the border of Croatia, is now best known due to claims of apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary to six Croats since 24 June 1981, and is now visited by thousands of pilgrims from around the world as a Marian shrine.
