  • Odiseya's Profile Photo

    by Odiseya Updated Apr 16, 2014

    Period of winter holidays in Doboj are festive days but here it start about middle December till middle of January following year. Why? Since most of Doboj inhabitants are Christian Orthodox and the Serbian Orthodox Church follow old Julian calendar. That means that all official holidays are 13 days later then official international Gregorian calendar.

    In fact, New Year fest here is 13th January and Christmas is on 7th January. Official international New Year celebration on 31th December is still a great celebration. But maybe even better is on 13th January. Center of Doboj is illunimated by holidays decoration and on very end of New Year (both times) are a big musical manifestation and fireworks.

    Doboj is still one of rare towns besides Banja Luka that still have a two New Year celebration in January. For that purpose local government close upper part of Saint Sava street (main street) in level with National Heroes Park and on plateau in front of Konzum shopping mall it was building big concert stage for that time. There was rich musical program for both of celebrations.
    So, if you passing trough North of Bosnia in January visit Doboj.

    Happy New Year Doboj 2011
