Franciskovići is a village in Boka Kotorska, Montenegro.

Located east of Krašići on the Luštica peninsula, the village was named after the Serbian family Francisković who built it in the 15th century. The members of Francisković family were interested in trade with central Balkans (Vranje, Niš etc.), so they became very rich and the family managed by village. About their power we know by the fact that the two daughters were married to descendants of German noble family Von Lahmm. However Franciskovici became part of Krašići because of its expansion. The only church in the Franciskovići is church of Holy Martyrs.
