Visoko is a city in central Bosnia and Herzegovina with approximately 17,000 residents. It is located on the road between Zenica and Sarajevo. Visoko lies on the Bosna river, where the Fojnička river merges into it. It is administratively part of the Zenica-Doboj Canton of the Federation.
The Visoko area was once the center of the medieval Bosnian state. During the Ottoman period, Visoko city was founded by Ajas-beg. After Austro-Hungary's annexation of Bosnia, Visoko was given a new but still old style, which is reflected in the oriental style of Visoko that was common throughout the Ottoman rule. In first Yugoslavia Visoko didn't develop much, and in Second World War town itself wasn't especially damaged. Real expanding town would experience in era of communist Yugoslavia. Bosnian war didn't avoid Visoko, which stays in control of Army BiH all four years of war. Today Visoko is a town of rich culture and history, but its economy has lost much of the capacity which it had before the Bosnian war
