  • The main part of Dalmatinska runs from south to north, stretching uphill from Maršala Tita to Mejtaš. At Buka St. one small part breaks off to form a cul-de-sac that runs east to west.

    Up until the time of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia it was not yet an actual street, but a small pathway that ran along the Buka stream bed. The process of regulating it was carried out in 1928 and 1929, and in 1931 it was given its first official name – Dalmatinska – after the coastal region of Croatia, a country in former Yugoslavia.

    This name remained until June 10, 1966, when it was renamed Mahmuta Bušatlije, after the revolutionary and national hero who was born in Bugojno in 1914. He helped organize antifascist resistance in BiH at the onset of WWII.

    In October 1941, Bušatlija was wounded, captured and thrown into prison in Tuzla while fighting Ustaše in Gornja Tuzla, where he later died after being severely tortured.

    The name, Dalmatinska, was reinstated on May 19, 1994 and a little street in Boljakov Potok now bears the name, Mahmuta Bušatlije.
