Aljmaš is a village in the Erdut municipality in eastern Croatia. Aljmaš lies on the right bank of the Danube.

Marian church[edit]

During the 1991 Croatian War of Independence, the Catholic church of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Aljmaš was destroyed, and had to be built almost completely anew in 2006.[2] Tens of thousands of pilgrims visit the site yearly on August 15, the Catholic holiday of the Assumption of Mary.[3]

The rebuilt Marian church in Aljmaš has an unusual shape and facade.
