Cazin is a town and municipality in northwest Bosnia and Herzegovina in the Bosanska Krajina region, near the border with Croatia. It is located in the Una-Sana Canton of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The municipality is often also called Cazinska Krajina. The town of Cazin is located on the main road which connects Bihać and Velika Kladuša.

History and features[edit]

Cazin has several historic places, some dating back to the 14th century. Ostrožac castle and Radetina Tower are located in Cazin.

From 1929 to 1941, Cazin was part of the Vrbas Banovina of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia.

The Cazin uprising of 1950, an armed anti-state rebellion of peasants, occurred in Cazin and neighboring Velika Kladuša and Slunj, which were all part of Communist Yugoslavia at the time.[2] The peasants revolted against the forced collectivization and collective farms by the Yugoslav government on the farmers of its country. Following a drought in 1949, the peasants of Yugoslavia were unable to meet unrealistic quotas set by their government and were punished. The revolt that followed the drought resulted in the killings and persecution of those who organized the uprising, but also many innocent civilians.[3][4] It was the only peasant rebellion in the history of Cold War Europe.[5]

The city was successfully defended by the Bosnian Army during the War in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
