Croatian holy shrine of Vepric is located 500 m past Kuk, in a harmoni¬ous natural setting, at the foot of the wooded hill. This place of pilgrimage was founded in 1908 by Bishop Dr. Juraj Carić who was also buried here. The natural cave and the surroundings, hills, plants and the spring easily remind one of the French Lourdes.
A chapel and the sacristy have been built in Vepric, as well as the al¬tar, confession booths, stations of the Cross, area for spiritual exercises, and paths for processions.
Because of its natural beauty and peace, this location is regularly visit¬ed throughout the year, and especially during the pilgrimage days on Febru¬ary 11th, March 25th, August 15th, and September 7th and 8th
