DOBOJ – THE PLACE WHERE THE KNIGHTS DEFENDED HONOR AND WROTE HISTORY

DOBOJ - THE PLACE WHERE THE KNIGHTS DEFENDED HONOR AND WROTE HISTORY

On the first sight the old and decrepit medieval states were wrapped in the veil of secret spells known to a very small number of people, and today even smaller. Yet what the inhabitants of these areas have borne is faith in God and a sacrifice for one and only Bosnia. No, medieval Bosnia was a supra-national creation, but a civilization process that enabled people to understand, understand their soil in which they lived, but this process also led to the mosaic of religion, thinking and creation of today’s multiculturalism. [umetnime] The Bosnian kings in their affairs included then a very important institution to the Church of Bosnia, which, regardless of differences, did not exclude either the Catholic or the Orthodox Church. Yes, then people cooperated and participated in all decisions together, they did not separate because they loved the country they live in, the country that feeds them. [umetnime] Imagine moving from Sarajevo to the weekend route where you know the wealth of your country. You go so lightly and you go through the passage of a cultural history, Visoko, King Sutjeska, Vranduk, Maglaj and finally you arrive there. Here the knights defended honor and wrote history, and attacked and tried to destroy one city, one state many, but failed. [umetnime] Strategic one of the most important cities of medieval Bosnia was Doboj. Our ancestors also known as the valley colors. Many blood flowed through the rivers Usorom, Sprečo and Bosnom, yet our ancestors were proud because they preserved the historical treasure for future generations. [umetnime] There is a lot of readers, catapults fired, swords broken and many times wounds on the fortress are overwhelmed. Gradina or Stari grad Doboj was built in the 13th century, and first mentioned in 1415 in the charter sent to the Hungarian Emperor. The stories of Doboj from knee to knee from centuries and memories have been broadcast, but they are well known to two versions of the story about how this city got its name. Some say that Sultan Mehmed II had once left his luggage in this city, and that Doboj originated from the Turkish word for luggage, and the other is that the name Doboj is inspired by the historical battles played on this ground. While the fighting was taking place around them, the inhabitants of this old city enjoyed themselves inside the walls. They had, and then, and the memory of that we have now an amphitheater where all the cultural events of the then vakta were going on. Positioned on the characteristic shape of the hill of volcanic origin and yet rich in underground tunnels that served to communicate the upper and lower parts of the population, the fortress is a true treasure of this region. Some dealers of this vault used exactly these tunnels as a shelter for the food and groceries they sold. While merchants sold their products at the entrance were knights, the guards of this fort were welcoming their visitors and offering them rakija medovačkom. It’s not an ordinary brandy of the honeybee. It was a brandy made according to an ancient recipe.   See more 360 degrees photos

[umetnime] Do you ask yourself each weekend where would you go to rest your soul? Somewhere under standards, or somewhere up to the Zenica – Doboj Canton. Want to get away from everyday life, and try to explore Bosnia and Herzegovina. It’s always best to get connected comfort and usefulness. Everyday life can always be bravely demolished in some fortresses, why would not be Maglaj’s fortress this time? [umetnime] “The fog disappeared,” and the beautiful Maglaj came from that fog. On the slopes of the Ozren Mountains and on the right bank of the river Bosna, one can see houses of the town of Maglaj in an impending order. The town is small and counts only some 3 428 inhabitants, maybe a little more or maybe even less. Who counts it? What matters in Maglaj is its history written out from the ancient charters. Maglaj’s fortress is mentioned in the Charter of Sigismund, the King of Hungary, for the first time. At the time of the Ottoman period,The Fortress served to defend the Bosnian kingdom, but only later gets its real form. I can write about it, but you could not feel it, until you touch the stone fortress, and you do not pass through its corridors, you can not even feel the weight of history. The fortress was built in the 13th century. It is the first medieval fortress, which the Ottomans had it undergone. The Maglaj Fort consists of five towers: Širbegova, Dizdareva, Boundary Tower, Captain’s Tower and Clock Tower. It is considered that the timekeeper sometimes had a bell. However, there are no reliable sources. In some legends, it is mentioned that the sound of the golden coin broke in the Maghaki Akash, in the early hours of the evening. [umetnime] The best view is the one from the top, when you climb this fortress. You can see Maglaj itself. By looking at the city and its magic, you see the river Bosna. The inhabitants of Maglaj town will welcome you the most with the legend of the city. Maglaj is a city of Bosnian life whose customs have been preserved to this day, the openness of the Maglaj Paradise, and the word of the magician is at every step. You will bring the beauty of the Maglaj’s fort as soldiers that carry the most beautiful medals from the greatest wars.   For more 360 photos click here
