Bugojno is a town and municipality of the same name in central Bosnia and Herzegovina on the river Vrbas. It is located in the Central Bosnia Canton of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina entity. The town is 130 km (81 mi) to the northwest from Sarajevo, with an estimated population of 50,000 (as of July 2007).

To the west towards Kupres is a region called Koprivica. This enormous forest was once one of Tito's (the president of former Yugoslavia) favorite hunting spots. The dense forest and lack of any human settlements have created a sanctuary for bears, wolves, deer, boar and a plethora of other wild animals. Hunting associations are very active in this region and there are many mountain and hunting lodges dotting the forest. Duboka Valley (deep valley) is a designated hunting area covered by thick spruce. Kalin Mountain is a popular weekend area for hikers and nature lovers.

Economy[edit]

In 1981, Bugujno's GDP per capita was 98% of the Yugoslav average.[2] However, hardships caused by the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina took a toll on the industry of Bugojno. Forestry has always been an important contributor to the local economy. Winter tourism has emerged in recent years.
