Summary/Abstract: The monastery in Guča Gora was built from 1857 to 1859, when it was legalized to exist in full juridical sense. In the building of the monastery the bishop fra Marijan Šunjić especially was engaged. Although 2009 celebrated the 100-year anniversary of the monastery, its history is much longer and reaches back deep into the middle age history of Lašva’s monastery and Lašna-Travnik parish. The goal of the article From the Lašva to the Guča Gora Monastery is to shed more light upon its stormy history. The article is composed of two parts. In the first part the monastery in Lašva and Lašva-Travnik parish are presented according to the reports of the provincials and apostolic vicars in Bosnia and concludes with the moving of the parish residence to Guča Gora. In the second part the division of Lašva parish, Guča Gora as curacy office of the parish Dolac, the parish Guča Gora as an independent parish, and finally the erection of the church and the monastery and their legalization are described.
