History

The town probably began life as an informal trading enclave which had spilled out from the nearby medieval capital of the Serbian Kingdom, Ras (now Stari Ras). Ras was less ideally placed for catching onto the passing trade from the trade routes and major roads through the Balkans, and the establishment of a trading community a few miles away at Novi Pazar would have improved matters (and hence the name of the city). Ras city was one of the first capitals of the medieval Serbian state of Raska, and the most important one for a long period of time. ...

Novi Pazar was formally founded as a city in its own right in 1459-1461 by Isa-beg Ishaković, who was also the founder of the city of Sarajevo.
