The rich history of the Vareš region is evidenced by the fact that today there are eight registered national monuments on the territory of the municipality of Vareš, among which the medieval royal town of Bobovac
and the forges (maidans) in the village of Oćevija are especially attractive for visitors. The old church in Vares, also known as the "Little Church" among the people of Vares, is also the oldest Catholic church in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Just a few hundred meters from it there is another national monument - the Orthodox Church of the Shroud of the Holy Virgin. It is also worth visiting many other cultural and historical monuments in the city of Vareš and its surroundings, such as the single-arched old stone bridge on the river Stavnja and the famous wooden mosque in the village of Karići.
