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.
