      Hello!
      Does anybody have or can get any historical information about the settlement
      Litva near Banovici in Bosnia? When was it founded or first mentioned? If
      you have access to any encyclopaedia or other resource that can help
      answering this question, please, reply!

      I found information on the Internet, that Banovici were also called Litva
      earlier and is called so by the old people even now (if I understand it
      correctly, because language is difficult for me): "Banovici su imali i
      raniji naziv Litva koji je grad dobio po istoimenoj rijeci koja protice kroz
      grad. Tako da i danasnji dan neki starosjedioci u okolnim selima i zaseocima
      Banovica grad Banovici zovu Litva."
      (http://www.pinkland.f2s.com/banovici.htm)

      And here, as I understand, the is said that the ancient name of Banovici -
      Litva - originates from the River Litva, but its etymology is not clear:
      "Raniji naziv Litva, sto ga je grad dobio po istoimenoj rijeci koja kroz
      njega protice, etimoloski je nedefiniran." "Opcina je obuhvacena slivnim
      podrucjima Krivaje i Sprece, a orijentirana dolinama rijeka Litve i Turije.
      Ponivka, Hodzin potok, Jablanica, Bukovac, Turija, Litva, Radina, Brestica,
      Brloznik, draganja, Ostruznica, Begov potok, pripadaju sjevernom podrucju
      opcine i slivu Sprece, a u zapadnom dijelu, juznog, brdsko-planinskog
      podrucja razvijeno je nekoliko manjih slivova koji pripadaju glavnom toku
      rijeke Krivaje." And one more fact (this is quite understandable): "Banovici
      imaju i dva hotela: hotel Litva, smjesten u strogom centru grada..."
      (http://www.75290.com/o_gradu.htm).

      However, on the map of Bosnia I saw that Litva is a neighbouring town to
      Banovici. So do you have any additional information, any historical dates
      about Banovici, river and town Litva?
