Busovača is a small town and municipality in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is 60 km (37 mi) from Sarajevo, 21 km (13 mi) from Zenica, and 30 km (19 mi) from Travnik.

History[edit]

During the Croat–Bosniak War, the city saw heavy fighting between the Army of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Croatian Defence Council. Busovača, with its small economy and infrastructure, is becoming an important crossroad between bigger cities.[citation needed][clarification needed]
