Fortress ‘Gradina’

The most famous tourist attraction is Fortress of Doboj, named ‘Gradina’ by Doboj citizens.

The proof that building of the fortress begun in the 13th century are numerous archaeological excavations, findings of jewellery in the Usora cemetery and ceramics from the bottom of the south tower of Doboj Fortress, Austrian engravings from 1697, old Turkish registers and notebooks. These findings are a testimony of the beginning of Doboj Fortress construction in 13th century and are a very valuable source of data on penetration of different enemy armies in this area, as well as on periods of upgrading, repairing and rebuilding of the fortress after catapult battles.

Nowadays the fortress is a valuable cultural and historical monument, the symbol of the town.
