Gradačac (Gradacac) description

This person, Husein-kapetan Gradaščević, gave a story of the Dragon of Bosnia, one of the most remarkable tales about the history of Bosnia.

Born in 1802 in the noble family, Husein-Captain Gradaščević spent his childhood and youth during the turbulent Ottoman times. When he was only 18 years old, he inherited the captain's chair of his brother, who was poisoned because he dared to disobey the orders of Dželal-Pasha. This tragic event permanently shaped his character and developed the rebellious Dragon of Bosnia, as he was called. He was a fearless warrior and leader who stood up against the Sultan requesting more autonomy and rights for his country and his people.

When he decided to confront the Ottomans in 1831, he fought until Kosovo with his army, where he eventually defeated them. His spirit inspired other rebellions as well. All this is the reason why his name is written with golden letters in the history of Bosnia & Herzegovina. He was not only a Bosnian hero but also a wise and tolerant ruler who constructed many buildings in the town Gradačac, all named after him.

Gradačac castle was built on the strategic hill that dominates the amazing landscape. The impressive fortress with 18 meters-high walls was constructed between 1756 and 1821, on the old Roman foundations, while the watchtower called Gradina 22 meters-high was built in 1824.

The tower served as a military complex, but also city administration premises. Below the castle there is a hidden underground system of tunnels, that were used for defense purposes while ago and only recently got rediscovered.

Gradačac castle is a national monument of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
