Novi Travnik is a town and municipality in central Bosnia and Herzegovina, located south of Travnik on the road to Bugojno. It is under the administration of the Central Bosnia Canton and the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Name[edit]

The municipality was called Novi Travnik (meaning: The New Travnik) until 1980, when it was styled Pucarevo after Đuro Pucar. In 1992 the former, original name was restored.

History[edit]

Novi Travnik was founded in 1949 to provide residence for the employees of the newly founded MMK Bratstvo factory, and so it is one of the youngest settlements in the region.
