Property Description

Municipality Banovici is a mining town located in the northeast Bosnia, on Konjuh mountain slopes with urban part located on Litva river bank. Development of the town and municipality derived from the coal exploitation, making Banovici the coal center of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Expansion comes after World War II, after construction of the famous railroad Brcko-Banovici when the first tons of „dark gold“ went to Belgrade. Historical facts found here witness human life and activity from the earliest history. The oldest known settlement was found on Gradina hill slopes and according to the material culture dates from prehistoric times. Blacksmith coins from the Roman Empire were also located in this area. The town used to be named Litva, named by the river with the same name, and current name comes from tombstone of Bozicak Banovic, medieval headstone nearby. Thanks to the breathtaking nature, Banovici represents a pleasant place to live and to visit.
