HISTORY

 

The history-geographic position of the municipality indicates to the population of this area even in the older stone age, which is evidenced by archaeological finds at the foot of the hills, beside rivers. The Romans ruled these parts from the 9th year of our era, when many military camps and facilities of economic interest were built. At the beginning of the XII century, this area became part of the kingdom of Hungary, and then the Turks ruled it for 350 years, since the beginning of the 16th century. During this period mass migration of the population occurred. From the hilly areas of east Herzegovina, Montenegro and Lika the Serb population in Lijevce polje and Potkozarje was violently repopulated. The character of the Austro-Hungarian reign that followed was the settling of the area with the Italians, Germans, the Ukrainians and the Poles.

Then this area became the most developed part of Bosnia and Herzegovina because of the use of modern agrotechnical measures. One of today’s strongest trade and craft centers was current Aleksandrovac, who got Post office in 1889, and there was also a production facility for the famous cheese from the Trapist Monastery. With the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy in 1918 and the entry into the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes or later the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, during and after the Second World War, the Laktaši municipality was in a very difficult position. The second half of the eighties of the last century is the beginning of the so-called ˝Laktaši Economic Wonders˝. This municipality is turning its attention to a large investments, thus opening the door to private entrepreneurship. This trend has been retained to date. The natural-geographic position of the municipality can be characterized as very favorable because it is located in the area of ​​the typical flat field Lijevče polje. In the central part, the Vrbas river divides Laktaši into the Župa part (right bank) and the Potkozarje- Lijevče part(the left bank of the Vrbas) as a natural border.
