The old town of Doboj is located in northern Bosnia, in an area with wide geographical foothills. The significant geostrategic position around the mouths of the rivers Usora and Spreča was a decisive factor in the formation of the fortress from which today’s Doboj developed.

Throughout this region’s conflict-riddled history, the fortress has been ransacked no fewer than 18 times. It also suffered substantial damage during the Bosnian War.

 

Know Before You Go

The panoramic view from the fortress is very much worth the trek.
