CATHOLIC schools

Catholic schools can be found in most countries around the world and in each - due to political, cultural, religious and other differences unique to each nation - they look different and serve a slightly different purpose.

In Bosnia and Herzegovina, Catholic schools exist in every major city and additionally in most towns and villages with a Catholic population large enough to support such a facility.

Their main focus is not on faith, since the Catholic faith in Bosnia and Herzegovina is taught mainly through family traditions and special classes held at Roman Catholic churches every Sunday. The main focus of Catholic schools in Bosnia and Herzegovina is simply giving students the same lessons they would receive at public schools but from a Roman Catholic perspective.

For example, history classes at Bosnian public schools tend to focus on the Illyrian, Roman, Ottoman, Austro-Hungarian, and modern eras. At Catholic schools, the same eras are taught but there is much more focus on the Roman era and all other eras are taught with a particular focus on the events significant to Roman Catholics, as well as their culture and lifestyle.

Catholic schools tend to be among the most beautiful schools in Bosnia and Herzegovina because most of those still in operation today were built during the Austro-Hungarian era in styles inspired by every corner of the Roman Catholic world.

My favorite Catholic school in Bosnia and Herzegovina is the Franciscan Academy in Visoko, a town just a few minutes northwest of Sarajevo. The school is run by an administration that truly represents the values of Christianity in a way that would be honorable and impressive everywhere, and especially so in a predominantly Muslim town in the middle of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

It is also one of the most beautiful Catholic schools in the Sarajevo area.

Thanks.

Another beautiful one is the Petar Barbaric School in Travnik.



Travnik is famous for something else entirely - it's women. And it would appear the stereotypes extend to the Croats in town as well:
