History

The first official mention of the settlement is from 1415, as it was written in the charter issued by Dubrovnik to Hungarian Emperor Sigismund, although there are numerous artefacts and objects that have been found (The National Museum of Bosnia/Herzegovina in Sarajevo & The Regional Museum in Doboj) and which confirm the fact that the area had been inhabited ever since the early stone age, and that the Roman Empire had an army camp (Castrum) and a settlement (Canabea) in the vicinity of the town dating from the 1st century AD.

The Doboj fortress, first built in the early 13th century and expanded in the early 15th century (1415), fell to the Ottoman Empire in 1476, only to be expanded yet again in 1490. It was a very important obstacle for the invaders coming from North, Hungarians, and later on, Austrians and Germans. It was built in the Gotho-Roman style with the gothic towers and romanic windows. Doboj was the site of a major battle between Hungarians and Bosnian/Turkish coalition in early August of 1415 in which Hungarians were heavily defeated. As an important border fortress (between Bosnian Kingdom and Hungary), it was also frequently attacked (officially recorded some 18 times) in the Austro-Ottoman Wars, and finally fell to the Habsburgs in 1878.

Geography

Before the war in Bosnia the municipality of the same name had a bigger area surface. A larger part of the pre-war municipality is part of the Republika Srpska, including the city itself, (the Doboj Region). The southern rural areas are part of the Zenica-Doboj Canton of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the eastern rural part of the municipality is part of the Tuzla Canton, also in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The parts of the pre-war Doboj Municipality that are in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina are the municipalities of Doboj South (Doboj Jug) and Doboj East (Doboj Istok) and the Municipality of Usora.

Economics

As a rail hub, before the Bosnian War, Doboj focused much of its industrial activities around it. Moreover, as a regional center, it was home to several factories, now mostly bankrupt from mismanagement or privatized, including "Bosanka Doboj", a fruit and vegetable product factory; "Trudbenik", a maker of electric equipment, etc. Nowadays, most of the economy, similar to the rest of the country and typical of poorly executed transition from state-controlled to market economy, bases around the service industry. High unemployment warrants a vibrant coffee shop and bar scene, crowded throughout most of the day and night(it is a general and common belief that Doboj is one of the three cities with greatest number of coffee bars within the city limits in Bosnia & Herzegovina).

Nightlife/Tourism

The city of Doboj is very colorful and contrasted to the extremes, there are top notch urban cafes/bars sharing the garbage containers with the old-school towney pubs and restaurants. The place to start is Doboj fortress then Zanatski Centar, bar/club-infested neighborhood, which is located in Naselje Stadion (Stadium Village) in downtown Doboj. There are numerous cafe bars, clubs, restaurants, arcade saloons, and sports-betting joints in this relatively small urban oasis. Mixed mediterranean and continental food, rock and metal concerts, turbo-folk rising stars, cevapcici & other oriental dishes, and all kinds of beer & other liquor(domestic and foreign) available. Orange bar, Corner Cafe, Time Out, City, Irish Pub, La Linea are just some of the must-see locales in this part of town.


Visit the bar "Rupa" ("The Hole") by the city park and try to attend one of the beer-promo nights in the crowded atmosphere and under the ground (location of a former city amateur theater). There is a large, stylish, discotheque/club "Dzungla" (The Jungle)located by the river Bosna for those who love Balkan-style ethno fury mixed with oriental and techno rhythms. Finally, end your night at the Club "Atlantic" in the old town and catch one of the worldwide-famous DJs spinning records almost every weekend there. Above the all, do not forget to visit the freshly-renovated medieval city castle (early 1200s) both during the day and at night before hitting the same bars once again, this time better prepared.
