HistoryEdit

Bosnia's best-preserved medieval castle, Srebrenik Fortress, dating from 1333 is located in the outskirts of Srebrenik. The castle was occupied by the Ban of Bosnia Stephen II Kotromanić until his death in 1353.

There are two historical versions related to the Ottoman conquest of Srebrenik. According to one, Srebrenik was taken in 1512, together with Teočak. The other version says that Srebrenik was taken together with Sokol and Tešanj in 1521 by the Bosnian sanjak bey Feriz. Although there is no precise data, it can be assumed that the Srebrenik old town and its fortress were built during the Hungarian rule over Bosnia, while some parts, such as a mosque were built during the Ottoman period.[1]
