Doboj Fortress Feb 01, 2017
When you approaching to Doboj, no matter from which direction you go, one of the first things you notice is the old fortress on a small hill.

That strategic position of fortress (and whole wide region) has determine his destiny.

First written evidence of the fortress existence is from letter of Dubrovnik traders to the Hungarian king Sigismund. They wrote "... in Usora suptus castrum Doboy..." – "in Usora, on the foothills of the Doboj fortress".

That was the message that Hungarian army, that had been invading the Bosnia valley, lodged in a camp on 28 June 1415.

A long time fortress is been neglected. At one point few year back, their historical and cultural significant ware recognized. In that time it becomes one of the popular touristic places in Republika Srpska (and Bosnia and Herzegovina). The fortress was restore and design to provide visitors a comfort and active visit and some time it was like that. There was cafe, souvenir shop and reconstructed knight fight.

Also, many touristic festivals, cultural events and even weddings take his place on fortress in recent past. There was fee and many people thinking that is too high.

Currently it is open from 9 am till 5 pm via local touristic organization. Summer is popular time for visit. Outside of season it is closed.
