There is archaeological evidence about fortress existence at the 13th century. Doboj Castle was first mentioned in 1415.

In 1449, a historic document was signed in the Doboj citadel: an agreement between the King of Bosnia Stepan Tomas and Hungary on joint protection from the Ottoman army.

On the defense of the upper level there is a tower crowned with a wooden structure – “čardak “, which gives the fortress its characteristic appearance. Another tower with a čardak protects the southern corner of the Doboj citadel. In cross-section, this tower resembles an irregular hexagon. At the very top of the hill during the Middle Ages was the main tower of the fortress and outbuildings. Later, the Turks installed a bastion instead of the tower.
