HistoryEdit

In the 7th century, Slavic tribes settled permanently in the area of the town of Živinice. The medieval territory of Živinice was part of the Bosnian state, the areas of Gostilj, Dramešin and Soli as independent political units that lost those attributes until the arrival of the Ottomans in Bosnia. The settlement of Živinice as an urban location probably originated in the 18th century.

The origin of the name Živinice is still not established. According to historian Muhamed Hadžijahić Živinice was mentioned in a Turkish document of 1764 as "Živinice called Uskopči, probably (Oskovci) in nahiya Tuzla".[1]
