Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic on Sunday ended her visit to the Marian shrine of Medjugorje in southern Bosnia and Herzegovina, spending the last day of her stay rafting along the river Neretva, the Bosnian edition of the Vecernji List daily reported.

During their five-day stay in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Grabar-Kitarovic and her friends attended masses in Medjugorje and visited the Podbrdo Hill, where reportedly in 1981 the Virgin Mary appeared to six local children.

During her stay, the Croatian president held a working lunch with the Croat member of Bosnia and Herzegovina's collective Presidency, Dragan Covic.

She also toured the Franciscan monastery in Siroki Brijeg and the Franciscan monastery in Mostar.

She visited Ljubuski, Kupres, Tomislavgrad and Rama. During those visits she met with a number of religious dignitaries, business people, political officials, public figures and citizens, the daily said.
