Total Croatia News

If you plan on going to Medjugorje by car from the west, your safest bet would be taking the Croatian motorway which continues some 10 km into Bosnia and Herzegovina (the toll is fixed at 1.20 KM, or 0.61 EUR). After that, you will have to drive on a somewhat bumpy road for 10 minutes until you get to the town. Bear in mind that you’re crossing a border, so you’ll need your passport or ID.

Here are some examples of routes:

Split – Medjugorje – ViaMichelin
It takes less than 2 hours to cover the 142 km between the two cities, including 115 km of motorway, and it costs €22.

Dubrovnik – Medjugorje – ViaMichelin
The motorway connecting Dubrovnik and Medjugorje starts at Ploče and covers only 26 of the 137 km in total, so the journey will take around 3 hours. The cost is €20.

Zagreb – Medjugorje – ViaMichelin
It’s a long journey (514 km), so expect a five-hour drive and €80.

Ljubljana – Medjugorje – ViaMichelin
It takes 6 and a half hours to cover the 556 km and at least €100 for gas and tolls.

Trieste – Medjugorje – ViaMichelin
It takes 6 and a half hours and €106 to cover the 590 km between Trieste in Italy and Medjugorje.

Vienna – Medjugorje – ViaMichelin
The eight-hour and 868 km drive costs €144.

Budapest – Medjugorje – ViaMichelin
Similar to Vienna, it’s an eight-hour drive, 839 km, and it costs €125.
