Široki Brijeg gains a Town Status
A small place in Herzegovina called Široki Brijeg has always been the economic, administrative and cultural centre of the West Herzegovina Canton, but now it's got official recognition - Federation Government declared it a town! This makes it the only town in this county.
 
Besides the residents of this new town, the mayor Miro Kraljević is also very pleased about this whole situation. He said that Široki Brijeg would now be equipped and organized in a better way. "I congratulate all the residents of Široki Brijeg and recommend them to live in their town and to work on its well-being in order to become even better place to live," said the mayor. Territory of the town extends to all places that are located within the municipality of Široki Brijeg and it overtakes all the responsibilities, rights, obligations and assets.
