Livno and Surroundings

Map of Livno and Surroundings

The western part of BiH around the town of Livno is geographically located where the rocky Mediterranean terrain of Dalmatia to the south intersects with the continental and forested area of central Bosnia to the north. Illyrian Dalmatae tribes originally inhabited the area around Livno. Romanization of the area occurred after the Romans defeated the Illyrians. During the Middle Ages, Livno was under the control of Croatian rulers until 1326. The area was then overtaken by the Bosnian Ban Stjepan Kotromanić and became part of the Bosnian state. Livno and its surroundings were incorporated into the Ottoman Empire in 1469. The town of Livno (1) experienced its most significant period of development in the 16th and beginning of the 17th c. You can learn more about the rich history of this area at the museum in the Gorica Franciscan Monastery (2).

Other attractions in this region are the Livanjsko Field (3), which is very suitable for raising livestock and gliding, the opportunity to see herds of wild horses (4) on the Krug Plateau, and admiring the winding Šuica River and Buško Lake.
