We continue heading south today as we travel to the beautiful medieval city of Split. Upon arrival, enjoy a leisurely walk through the maze of the palace and savor the lifestyle, converse with the locals and bargain for souvenirs to take home or try the fresh fruits and olive oil found at the local marketplace. Dinner and overnight in Split.
|Day 5:||Enjoy a city tour of Split which includes UNESCO’s heritage, Diocletian Palace and the Cathedral of St. Doimus, the town’s patron saint. Split is a city that has drawn both tourist and pilgrim since ancient times. The Roman Emperor Diocletian was born in nearby Salona in the mid-third century, and his seaside palace at Split is among the region’s most noteworthy sights. After Diocletian’s death in 313 AD, the palace became a residence for exiled Roman emperors and their families. The vast walled complex, covering more than seven acres, forms the city’s core. Nearby is the Venetian piazza, dating from the years of rule by Venice (1420-1797). In the afternoon, we travel three hours as we cross borders to Bosnia-Herzegovina to the village of Medjugorje. Dinner and overnight in Medjugorje.|
The name Medjugorje is Slavic meaning "area between two mountains".
It was here that Our Lady first appeared to six children on June 24, 1981 and is still appearing to this day. Our morning begins with
a celebration of Mass at St. James Church. Then spend some private time walking around the village and get acquainted with the lifestyle
of the local people.
Our Lady had promised to give 10 secrets each to the visionaries and she has been imparting them over the past 25 years. The three visionaries have received all 10, the other three have each received 9. The secrets pertain to the visionaries themselves, to the Church, to the sign, to all humanity, and to everyone, and to the whole world and to Medjugorje. Contemplate on Our Blessed Mother’s message of PEACE, FAITH, CONVERSION, PRAYER and FASTING. An evil which threatened the world, according to the seventh secret, had been eliminated through prayer and fasting according to Mirjana. Talks with one of the visionaries will be arranged, usually done in the back of the church. Dinner and overnight in Medjugorje.
Health permitting, we may want to climb Apparition Hill (Podbrdo Hill) with its bronze plaques depicting the mysteries of the rosary. Upon reaching the top, pray before the cross which commemorates the spot where Our Blessed Mother appeared on June 24, 1981 to the visionaries. Then climb Cross Mountain (Krizevac Mountain) where the villagers have built a 30 ft. cross on the anniversary of Jesus' crucifixion. In the evening, join the villagers once again and other pilgrims from around the world for the Croatian Mass at St. James Church. Dinner and overnight in Medjugorje.

Dinner and overnight in Medjugorje.|
