Mar­ija Bistrica


The Mother of God Shrine in Mar­ija Bistrica located in Hrvatsko Zagorje has a long centuries-​old his­tory and is one of the most pop­u­lar and vis­ited Mar­ian shrines in Croa­tia. The located Bistrica itself is men­tioned back in 1209. as a feu­dal prop­erty belong­ing to the county mayor Vratislav, while in 1334. it was recorded as the Parish Church of Sts. Peter and Paul. Dur­ing con­struc­tion on the eve of the Assump­tion of Mary, a fire broke out dam­ag­ing the com­plete inter­nal sec­tion of the church, and besides the large altar, the mirac­u­lous statue of the Mother of God. The new altar was con­se­crated in 1883. The most solemn day was 3 Octo­ber 1998. when Pope John Paul II vis­ited Mar­ija Bistrica on occa­sion of the beau­ti­fi­ca­tion of the mar­tyr, the Zagreb Arch­bishop Alo­jz­ije Stepinac.
