Blagovac is town in Vogošća municipality, near Sarajevo, Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is divided into five sub parts which are: Blagovac 1 (factory area), Blagovac 2 (international dog training center in Miro Dukic's house), Blagovac 3 (local mosque that was built after the Bosnian War), shopping center and Blagovac 4 and 5. Before the Bosnian conflicts Blagovac was entirely populated by a Serbian population. After the war, and with the forming of Republika Srpska, most of the Serbs sold their houses and moved to Pale or other places with a Serbian majority. Now Blagovac is mainly populated by Muslims however there are still few houses with Serbian families left. (Srdjan Peric house)

History[edit]

First settlers to Blagovac were the Todoroviċ family. After the World War 2 most of the land that was owned by the Todorovic family was stolen (confiscated) by, at that time, the "new communist" government. On one of the big sites close to the highway Unis-Pretis was built. The Todorovic family was never compensated for any of the lost parts of the land by even the new Bosnian Government.
