Tešanj (Tesanj) description

The foundation of Tešanj castle was started even before the Romans conquered the region. Initially, in this place the Illyrians (group of Indo-European tribes in antiquity, who inhabited part of the western Balkans) had their own fortress, which was demolished by the Romans and built their refugium.

After, fortress was enhanced by the Romans, Slavs and the Ottoman forces. Tešanj castle has been primarily a defensive fortification. The first mentioned was on March 23, 1461, in a letter from Pope Pius II to the Vatican Archives.

The Hungarian army, after the Ottoman invasion of Srebrenik in 1520, fled and destroyed the city Tešanj on the run. At the end of the 17th century it again played a very important role and was then renovated and modernly established. At the beginning of the 18th century, a new, lower part of the city was built. The place was abandoned in 1840. In World War II, the Germans used the fort as a bunker.

Tešanj castle is a national monument of Bosnia & Herzegovina.
