The annals of Patriarchate of Peć (Pećka Patrijarsija) mentioned Nevesinje in 1219, which is the earliest appearance of the municipality of Nevesinje in preserved historical sources.

The Nevesinje region was under the rule of different medieval lords until the end of the 15th century. The most significant ruler of Nevesinje from this period was Stjepan Vukčić Kosača, known as Herceg Stjepan. The whole land Hercegovina was named after him. Stjepan's lands were under the constant treat from advancing Turkish forces in the 15th century. Hercegovina, and thus Nevesinje were gradually incorporated into the Turkish Empire by the first quarter of the 15th century (1422).

During the period of Turkish rule Nevesinje was mostly part of Bosnian Pashaluk and was a seat of a qadi. It was at Nevesinje that the Great Eastern Crisis was ignited, with the outbreak of the Herzegovinian rebellion of 1875-1878 when peasants of the region rebelled against Turkish tax collectors. The rebellion soon spread to the rest of Herzegovina and to Bosnia and other parts of the Ottoman Empire. Neighbouring states, Serbia, Montenegro and Bulgaria got involved in the conflict which in turn pulled in great powers of the time. The conflict ended with Congress of Berlin in 1878 and the province of Bosnia and Herzegovina was placed under the administration of Austria-Hungary. At the same time Romania, Serbia, and Montenegro were declared independent principalities.

People of Nevesinje continued their struggle against foreign rule with an uprising against Austria-Hungary in 1882. This uprising is interesting because it was the first time that Orthodox Serbs and Muslim Bosniaks fought on the same side under the slogan: "For the holy cross and the faith of Muhammad" (Za krst časni i vjeru Muhamedovu).

○   Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.


Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
