Nova Gradiška

Commanding Post of Old Croatian Military Frontier

In it's relatively short but rich history Nova Gradiška has from the beginning had the characteristics of a typical border town, always fighting and struggling for national identity and independence. The founding of Nova Gradiška in the middle of the 18th century is connected with a decision made by the Austrian empress Mary Theresa to set up a region called "Vojna Krajina" (The Croatian Military Border) in order to strengthen the Empire's southern border, after the Turks had been forced back across the river Sava. Nova Gradiška was founded on May 1 in 1748 as a future commanding post of the Gradiska border regiment.
