10 H ISTORICAL O VERVIEW The history of Osijek goes back to Neolithic times In 331, the Roman emperor Hadrian raised the old settlement of Mursa to a colony with special privileges. After migrating, the Croats made a settlement near the ruins of Mursa, giving it its resent name, Osijek. Life was thriving here in the Middle Ages, but only traces of that life can be found today, because the Turks destroyed everything they found and built a town to suit their style. The Turks built Suleiman the Magnificents famous 8 km-long wooden bridge, considered to be one of the wonders of the world. After liberation from the Turks in 1687, Osijek was once again completely devastated. Between 1712 and 1721, the new Austrian authorities built a new fortress, today known as Tvr đ a. Osijek was heavily damaged during the Homeland War, /4 0
