The Catholic traditions of Srebrena Bosna are best represented in Fojnica and Kraljeva Sutjeska. The Holy Spirit Franciscan Museum, part of a hilltop monastery, holds over 17,000 volumes of books, records and documents, and the second-largest collection of incunabula (books printed before 1500).



The museum also exhibits the Ahdnama. This document is one of the most important orders issued by Sultan Mehmed Fatiha to the Catholic communities of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The 16th century decree, signed at Milodraz to the northeast of Fojnica, allowed Christians to freely retain their religious life and to propagate their beliefs. Although there were random persecutions at a local level, it was the policy of the empire to grant religious freedom to its Christian citizens.



Cazim Musa Hadzimeljic
in the village of Zivcici is an Islamic sacral place where dervishes gather annually. It is also a small family museum, open daily from 8 to 4, that has some fascinating examples of dervish traditional dress from the Ottoman period, and a few paintings and other relics from Ottoman times.

In the vicinity of Fojnica, just off the main road from Kiseljak to Busovaèa, is the Naksibendi order tekija (old dervish house) in Zivcici village. The area is blessed with the many beautiful waterfalls of Kozica River.
