Doboj istok Municipality


The present-day municipality of Doboj Istok was separated from the pre-1992 municipality of Doboj as a result of the 1995 Dayton Accords, being established as a municipality in 1998. Today it lies in Tuzla Canton, in the Federation of Bosnia & Herzegovina entity.

As part of Doboj municipality, the NOB heritage of present-day Doboj Istok municipality was the subject of the 1986 book Od ustanka do pobjede - zbornik sjećanja iz NOR-a u dobojskom kraju (pp.467-542). Within the boundaries of present-day Doboj Istok municipality, a total of 2 monuments were documented as having existed at this time. In the process of research, no currently valid documentation produced by municipal authorities could be found that mentions either of these monuments or memorials, or any additional memorials to the People’s Liberation War created after 1986. It must be noted that although one monument - the fountain to commemorate members of the Gavrić family in Stanić Rijeka - appears to lie upon the territory of the neighbouring Doboj municipality, local residents stated that the location is, in fact, under the administration of Doboj Istok municipality.
