Name[edit] The name was given to the city due to its position on elevated ground which prevented the city being flooded by the local swamp waters. Its name Osijek
Osijek
comes from the Croatian word "oseka" which means "ebb tide". Due to its history within the Habsburg Monarchy
Habsburg Monarchy
and briefly in the Ottoman Empire, as well as the presence of German and Hungarian minorities throughout its history, Osijek
Osijek
has (or had) its names in other languages, notably Hungarian: Eszék, German: Esseg or Essegg, Turkish: Ösek, Latin: Essec. It is also spelled Esgek.[2] Its ancient name was Mursa and is supposed to come from the Proto-Indo-European word *móri (sea, marshland). The same root is perhaps seen in the toponyms "Marsonia" and "Mariniana".[3][unreliable source?] History[edit] Origins[edit]

The origins of human habitation of Osijek
Osijek
dates back to Neolithic times, with the first known inhabitants belonging to the Illyrians
Illyrians
and later invading Celtic tribes. After the conquest of Pannonia, Osijek, known at the time as Mursa, was under the administration and protection of the Roman 7th legion which maintained a military castrum at the colony and a bridge over the river Drava. Roman emperor
Roman emperor
Hadrian raised the old settlement of Mursa to a colony with special privileges in 131. After that, Mursa had a turbulent history, with several decisive battles taking place at its immediate proximity, among which the most notable are the battle between Aureolus

and Ingenuus

in 260 and especially brutal and bloody Battle of Mursa Major in 351. These battles, especially the latter one, had long-term consequences for the colony and the region which was already under ever-increasing pressure from the invading Goths

and other invading tribes. The earliest recorded mention of Osijek
Osijek
dates back to 1196.[4] The town was a feudal property of Kórógyi family between 1353 and 1472. After the death of the last Kórógyi, King Mathias granted it to the Rozgonyi family. The city was almost completely destroyed by the Ottoman conquerors on 8 August 1526.[4] The Turks rebuilt it in Ottoman oriental style and it was mentioned in the Turkish census of 1579. In 1566, Suleiman the Magnificent

built a famous, 8 kilometer-long wooden bridge of boats in Osijek, considered at that time to be one of the wonders of the world.[5] In Ottoman Empire Osijek

was part of the Budin Eyalet. Following the Battle of Mohács in 1687, Osijek

was liberated by the Habsburg Monarchy

Empire[edit] Osijek

was restored to western rule on 29 September 1687 when the Turks were ousted and the city was occupied by the Habsburg
Habsburg
Empire.[7] Between 1712 and 1715, the Austrian authorities built a new fortress, outer walls and all five planned bastions (authored by the architect Maximilian de Gosseau) known as Tvrđa,[8] in the heart of the town. Holy Trinity Square is surrounded on the north by the building of the Military Command, on the west by the Main Guard building and on the east by the Magistrate building (presently Museum of Slavonia). In the middle of the square there is a monument to the plague which was erected in 1729 by general Maximilian Petras' widow.[9] The Gornji Grad (Upper Town) was founded in 1692 and Donji Grad (Lower Town) followed on 1698 settled mostly by the inhabitants from swampy area of Baranja. Tvrđa, Gornji, and Donji grad continued as separate municipalities until 1786 when they were united into a single entity.[10] In late 18th century it took over from Virovitica
Virovitica
as the centre of the Verőce county. The Habsburg

empire also facilitated the migration and settlement of German immigrants into the town and region during this period.[11] In 1809, Osijek

was granted the title of a Free Royal City

and during the early 19th century it was the largest city in Croatia.[12] The city developed along the lines of other central European cities, with cultural, architectural and socio-economic influences filtering down from Vienna

.[citation needed] During the 19th century, cultural life mostly revolved around the theatre, museums (the first museum, Museum of Slavonia, was opened in 1877 by private donations), collections, and printing houses (the Franciscans).[13] City society, whose development was accompanied by a prosperous economy and developed trade relations, was related to religious festivals, public events (fairs), entertainment and sports. The Novi Grad (New Town) section of the city was built in the 19th century, as well as Retfala
Retfala
to the west.[citation needed] Twentieth century[edit] The newest additions to the city include Sjenjak, Vijenac, Jug and Jug II, which were built in the twentieth century. The city's geographical riverside location, and noted cultural and historical heritage – particularly the baroque Tvrđa, one of the most immediately recognizable structures in the region – facilitated the development of tourism. The Osijek
Osijek
oil refinery was a strategic bombing target of the Oil Campaign of World War II.[14] Immediately after the war, the daily newspaper Glas Slavonije
Glas Slavonije
was relocated to Osijek
Osijek
and has printed there ever since. A history archive was established in the city in 1947 and GISKO (city library) in 1949. The Children's theatre

and the art gallery were open in 1950. As a continuation of the tradition of promoting national heritage, especially in music, society of culture and art "Pajo Kolarić" was established on 21 March 1954.[citation needed] Osijek
Osijek
has been connected with the Croatian republic's capital Zagreb and the previous federal capital Belgrade
Belgrade
by a modern paved road since 1958. The new Drava
Drava
bridge to the north was built in 1962. The first faculty opened in Osijek
Osijek
was Faculty of Economy (in 1959 as Centre for economic studies of the Faculty of Economy in Zagreb),[15] followed immediately by a high school of agriculture, later renamed as Faculty of Agriculture[16] and Faculty of Philosophy.[17] The Faculty of Law was established in 1975.[18] thus becoming the first new member of newly established University of Osijek. As part of further development as a regional food industry and agricultural centre, a major (working) collective for agriculture and industry was established in 1962. During the 1980s, a new pedestrian suspension bridge over the Drava
Drava
was built. A regional centre of National Television JRT was also opened.[citation needed] Croatian War of Independence[edit] Main articles: Osijek

were killed over the course of the war, including 1,327 soldiers and 397 civilians. [21]At least five Croatian officials were condemned for war crimes against Serb civilians in Osijek, including General Branimir Glavaš.[22] Geography[edit] Climate[edit]

Institutions and industries[edit]

Portanova Shopping Center

Major institutions in the city include the Josip Juraj Strossmayer University of Osijek
University of Osijek
(established in 1975), the Croatian National Theatre, the Museum of Slavonia
Slavonia
(established in 1877), and the printing house dating to 1735. The city also has several gymnasiums, the oldest of which dates to 1729, a drawing school from the 19th century, a zoological garden, a centre for the promotion of livestock breeding, and an institute for sugar beet farming.[citation needed] The Saponia chemical factory is the largest factory located in the Osijek
Osijek
area. It is a major producer of detergents, soap and cosmetics whose products are recognized throughout the region as being of quality.[31] It is by far the largest exporter in the city area. Other industries include a regional brewery, the Pivovara Osijek
Osijek
(first Croatian beer), a sugar processing plant, as well as a candy factory Kandit. The Niveta brush factory founded as Siva in 1922 still operates. The Osijek
Osijek
area used to be much more industrialised and a broad range of goods and products were being manufactured there. One of the earliest factories was the Drava
Drava
match factory, established in 1856, which no longer exists.[32] Other industries included production of synthetic materials, agricultural machinery, metal furniture, wood and timber, textiles, footwear, and silk, as well as metal processing and printing. However, the 1990s saw most of these industries decline and in some cases close completely. However, the city remains at the centre of an important agricultural region.[citation needed] Politics[edit] At the November 2007 elections, no party held a majority, which is not unusual for Croatia
Croatia
as local elections have proportional representation. However, the three mathematically possible coalitions had political problems that made coalition building unusually difficult. The November elections were early (izvanredne) elections caused by the breakdown of the coalition of the two main parties, the Croatian Party of Rights
Croatian Party of Rights
(HSP) and the Croatian Democratic Assembly of Slavonia
Slavonia
and Baranja
Baranja
(HDSSB). The cause of the breakdown was disagreement over the building of a new sports stadium.[33][34] At the elections held on 25 November 2007, the HSP and the HDSSB gained 7 seats each, the Social Democratic Party (SDP) 6 seats, the Croatian Democratic Union
Croatian Democratic Union
(HDZ) 4, and the Croatian People's Party – Liberal Democrats (HNS) 1.[35] A possible coalition between HDSSB and SDP provoked criticism of the Social Democrats for lack of principle such as from Damir Kajin, who called it a 'sellotape coalition', alluding to the charges of war crimes that the HDSSB leader Branimir Glavaš is facing.[36] After the parties failed to agree on a coalition, the Croatian government called new elections for the city.[34] These elections took place on 9 March 2008 and gave the HSP 9 councilors, the HDSSB 6, HDZ, 5, SDP, 3 and a coalition of HNS and two smaller parties 2. Anto Đapić has expressed his hope for a coalition with the HDZ.[37] Society and culture[edit]
