Blue Cross, is 25 minutes’ walk from Gloria Apartments.
This cross was set up in 1985 and the place is important for all those who, because of their weaker physical possibilities, cannot go on a trip to Podbrdo or go to Križevac. The place where the Blue Cross was raised is a regular encounter place of the prayer group and Ivan Dragičević (he had apparitions in this place in the first years). Also, it is interesting to note that at the very short distance of the Blue Cross, another identical cross was erected and decorated in the same way, with the Lady’s statue under the cross. This was done because the original place where Ivan Dragičević experienced the visions is quite crowded and cannot accommodate many interested believers, so the same ambiance was created in a more spacious place. Also, many pilgrims believe that at the site of the Blue Cross came the first Lady’s Appearance, but that is not true.
Apart from these important places, Medjugorje offers so much more. We believe that after one visit you will come here again and again because Medjugorje and Herzegovina conquer the heart and capture it forever!
