STONE THRONE OF BOSNIAN KINGS - BOBOVAC

Stone throne of Bosnian kings, Bobovac


With primarily defensive and strategic significance, Bobovac was providing an efficient protection to the Bosnian monarchs, from Banus Stjepan II (1322-1353) and king Tvrtko I Kotromanic (1353-1391) up to Stjepan Tomaševic (1461-1463). It was built, as many other towns throughout Europe, in few phases, more than one century (early the 14th century – the first decade of the 15th century), Bobovac had 1100 metre of a defensive wall 100-150 cm thick, the Bosnian-royal court and four palaces, out of which three were part of the court, town gates, church buildings, capitals, finds of a fresco painting and diversity of the handicrafts, church bells, royal mausoleum that stress the sacral and cultural character of the entire ensemble , with its striking eleven towers that witnessed about its eminent european identity and quality of life.

By its primary purpose, way of architectural realization, and especially by its prominent political significance that crossed the borders of the Bosnian medieval state, Bobovac reached the same role and function that Stolni Biograd (Szekesfehervár) and Višegrad had for the then Hungary. The common archetype was Aachen of Charlemagne with cathedral and palace that was used as a model of the capital that expanded throughout the medieval Europe. Political function of Bobovac reflects in the fact that inside its walls was guarded the Bosnian crown due to which, in the early 15th century, in attempt to get hold of the crown, Sigismund Lexembourgian, at that period the most powerful European monarch, payed a visit to this fortress.

Bobovac was occupied by Ottoman in May 1463, what characterized the end of its political glory as the capital of the Bosnian Kingdom. On 6.11.2002. Ancient Monuments Bord of BiH proclaimed the historical area of "Mediaeval Town Bobovac" in the national monument of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
