Abstract

Sisak is a city that has experienced continuous inhabitation for over two thousand years. Because of this, the city of Sisak falls under one of the oldest settlements in central Croatia. The development of the city is driven by two main factors (economic and military), the two factors alternating depending on its importance at what time in history. The period of the Ottoman conquest was a period of hardship and the hardest time for Sisak, however at the same time the most glorious time in the development of history. It was a period of great human and territorial losses for Croatia at the time, and it was, at this time that Sisak emerged as a shield to defend the rest of Croatia. The great Christian victory against the largely numbered Ottoman force saw Sisak not only defend the rest of the national territory, but also the area of Central Europe. Hence, Sisak because of the great victory, found itself in the spotlight of the whole of the then Christian Europe.
