The Kuršumlija mosque in Kladanj - its name is derived from the Turkish word for lead (kurşun), due to the dome being covered with it

The first record of Kladanj in Turkish sources is from 1469, referring to the market place Cetvrtkoviste where on Thursdays big fairs were held. In the period of Ottoman rule, Kladanj was mentioned in 1557, as a settlement (kasaba) within the Sarajevo kadiluk (territorial unit) that would further on become a kadiluk itself with Olovo as its part.[1]
