Vranduk is a historical place located in the canyon of the Bosna river, about 10 km from Zenica and about 85 km northwest of Sarajevo (Geographical coordinates: 44º17'30.68''N, 17º54'15.31''E, elevation: 322). The place is located on the main traffic 'backbone' of Bosnia and Herzegovina, next to the current road M17 and the future headquarters of the Bosnia and Herzegovina highway 5C. Vranduk is mentioned for the first time (March 11, 1410) in a letter from the people of Dubrovnik to the Hungarian king Sigismund, where they complain about the actions of his army (commanded by Pavle Besenji) towards their merchants. The Bosnian king Tvrtko II Tvrtkovic (reigned 1404–1409 and 1420–1443) stayed in the suburb of Vranduk (Varosiste) on two occasions (1430). In Vranduk (1449), the Bosnian king Stjepan Tomas (1411-1461) formed a trading company for silver trading with Nikola Testa from Trogir. The Ottomans occupied Vranduk (1463) when it was developing into a kasaba. During the penetration of the Austrian army towards Sarajevo (1697) led by Eugene of Savoy, Vranduk was an impassable obstacle that diverted the direction of the penetration of Savoy bypass roads towards Sarajevo. As a strategic place, Vranduk has been well historically researched. The aim of this work is to show the 'continuity of life in Vranduk' with an emphasis on the present day and its perspectives. In this sense, it is a good basis for a study on sustainable living
