After breakfast, we meet with our guide at the hotel and we walk to the foot of Mount Krizevac (Cross Mountain), a kilometre away from the church and 520 metres above sea level. We have Stations of the Cross on the way to Cross mountain. Please note that to go up the mountain you must be reasonably fit and be very careful as the mountain has rough rocks and stones to tackle. The Gigantic Cross you see up here was erected by local people in 1933 to commemorate the 1900th anniversary of our Jesus’ Crucifixion. Enjoy the view at the summit and relax before the descent. You can choose to walk or take a taxi back to the hotel. Overnight at the hotel. (B)

There are many activities in and around the Sanctuary. Confessions are conducted throughout the day in many languages. You can revisit the Risen Christ and the Apparition Hill/Blue Cross where you can pray the Rosary and say the stations of the Cross – this is immensely popular. Also, not to be missed is the Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament in the evening at the open Altar located behind St James Church. Overnight at the hotel. (B)

Today we venture out of Medjugorje and visit the famous medieval city of Mostar. The Old Bridge is the main highlight, built in the 17th century and recently restored to its former glory after being destroyed during the Bosnian War of Independence between 1992 and 1995.
