The municipality was called Novi Travnik (meaning: The New Travnik) until 1980, when it was styled Pucarevo after Đuro Pucar. In 1992 the former, original name was restored.


Novi Travnik was founded in 1949 to provide residence for the employees of the newly founded MMK Bratstvo factory, and so it is one of the youngest settlements in the region. As of January 2015, the municipality contains nine National Monuments of Bosnia and Herzegovina,[1] amongst which are seven stećak necropolises, one mosque and the Necropolis for the victims of Fascism.
