When the first apparition happened, Medjugorje was a village in Yugoslavia, republic Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Despite communist party who was leasing the country at that time, message from Medjugorje was unstoppable, and has been spreed out all over the world.
The witnesses were tested by the best world psychologists and doctors and all of them have concluded that all six visionaries are completely healthy and are not lying. All of the visionaries has gotten a numerous messages from Blessed Virgin Mary and all of them were presented to the people. The citizens of Medjugorje believe that St. Mary has chosen that place for some reason to send the people words of peace and love and faith from her Son Jesus Christ. The presentation on the statue of St. Mary-Queen of Peace in St. James' Paris Church is exactly in the body size and descriptions of the witnesses.
Her simple dress is bluish-grey and falls freely all the way down to the little whitish cloud on which she is standing. Her veil is pure white and covers her head and shoulders. It also reaches down to the little cloud. She has a crown of twelve golden stars on her head. All presentation of St. Mary on souvenirs, statues and painting follow this description in Medjugorje.
The first witness Mirjana Dragićević Soldo says that every person who want to visit Medjugorje is invited by St. Mary-Queen of Peace directly. She wants us to open our hearts and be guided by her in the name of love. If you want to meet this holy place be our guest and take a look at our itinerary.

Over the tuff filled layer, from the top to the bottom of the waterfall,many plants such as grass,moss and ringworm grow. Along the waterfall hemp, figs and poplar have spring up. Next to the waterfall many mills and stoods for rolling cloth were once active.
