History

The town of Rudo was established in 1555 by Sokollu Mustafa Pasha, a close relative of Ottoman Vizier Sokollu Mehmed Pasha.[1] A stone mosque, bridge over the Lim, hamam, inn, mekteb (school), tekke, some shops and houses were built.[1] It was mentioned by Evliya Çelebi (1611–1682).[1] It was flooded in 1896, and then expanded into an urban settlement.[2] The 1st Proletarian Brigade of the Yugoslav Partisans was established in Rudo on 22 December 1941.[2] A monument dedicated to the Brigade was erected in 1961,[2] with a museum subsequently being opened a decade later.
