Croatia and Medjugorje Pilgrimage
The nation of Poland has a rich Catholic history, but also one of tremendous persecution. Throughout these periods of strife, the people have remained devoutly Catholic. It can arguably be said that is is the most Catholic of all European countries, as the others have drifted far from their Christian roots. Of course, no one can dispute the effect that one Polish priest had on the world: Saint (Pope) John Paul II. His Pontificate helped launch what was certainly one of the most significant events of the 20th Century.

What Should I Know Before I Go to Croatia and Medjugorje?
Like most places in the world today, cellular communication is available throughout much of Croatia as well as Bosnia and Herzegovina. Please be sure to check with your provider to understand the fees and options available for your phone. Free WiFi is available in most hotels and many restaurants.
The electrical current in is 220 volts, 50 cycles alternating current (AC); wall outlets take plugs with two round prongs.
Consider making a small investment in a universal adapter, which has several types of plugs in one lightweight, compact unit. Most laptops and mobile phone chargers are dual voltage (i.e., they operate equally well on 110 and 220 volts), so require only an adapter. These days the same is true of small appliances such as hair dryers. Always check labels and manufacturer instructions to be sure. Don’t use 110-volt outlets marked “for shavers only” for high-wattage appliances such as hair-dryers.
Even though Croatia is a part of the European Union, they still use their own currency: the Kuna. Likewise, Bosnia and Herzegovina uses the Bosnian Mark
