Name[edit] During the 14th century under the old Serbian fortress of Stari Ras, an important market-place named Trgovište
started to develop. By the middle of the 15th century, in the time of the final Ottoman Empire conquest of Old Serbia, another market-place was developing some 11 km to the east. The older place became known as Staro Trgovište
(Old Trgovište, Turkish: Eski Pazar) and the younger as Novo Trgovište
Novo Trgovište
(New Trgovište, Turkish: Yeni Pazar). The latter developed into the modern city of Novi Pazar. The name of Novi Pazar
Novi Pazar
(meaning "new marketplace") was thus derived from the Serbian name Novo Trgovište, via the Turkish name Yeni Pazar, which is itself derived from bazaar (from Persian بازار (bāzār), meaning 'market'; from Middle Persian بهاچار (bahā-chār), meaning 'place of prices').[5] It is still known as Yeni Pazar in modern-day Turkey.

Church of the Apostles Peter and Paul from the 9th century

One of the oldest monuments of the area is the Church of the Apostles Peter and Paul first built in the Roman era. The capital city of the Principality of Serbia, Ras, which was ruled by the Vlastimirović dynasty from 768 to 980, was near the modern city and has been designated a UNESCO
World Heritage Site. In the next centuries, the region of modern Novi Pazar
Novi Pazar
served as the principal province of the Serbian realm. It was an administrative division, usually under the direct rule of the monarch and sometimes as an appanage. It was the crownland, seat or appanage of various Serbian states throughout the Middle Ages, including the Serbian Kingdom (1217-1345) and the Serbian Empire (1345-1371). In 1427, the region and the remnant of Ras, as part of the Serbian Despotate, was ruled by Serbian despot Đurađ Branković. One of the markets was called "despotov trg" (Despot's square).[7] In 1439, the region was captured by the Ottoman Empire, but was reconquered by the Serbian Despotate
Serbian Despotate
in 1444. In the summer of 1455, the Ottomans conquered the region again, and named the settlement of Trgovište
Eski Bazar (Old Market). Novi Pazar
Novi Pazar
was formally founded as a city in its own right in 1461 by Ottoman general Isa-Beg Ishaković, the Bosnian governor of the district (sanjak) who also founded Sarajevo.[8] Ishaković decided to establish a new town on the area of Trgovište
as an urban center between Raška and Jošanica, where at first he built a mosque, a public bath, a marketplace, a hostel, and a compound. It was the chief town of the Ras province (vilayet) until its disestablishment in 1463, when it became part of the Jeleč Vilayet. The first written document which mentions Novi Pazar
Novi Pazar
dates from the 15th century, and describes the decision of the Republic of Ragusa
Republic of Ragusa
to appoint a consul there. The town was well developed by this time, being at the intersection of important routes leading to Dubrovnik, Niš, Sofia, Constantinople, Salonica, Sarajevo, Belgrade
and Budapest. The town also remained the capital of the Sanjak of Novi Pazar, which continued until the 20th century as a constitutive unit of Bosnia Eyalet. The sanjak was occupied and administered by Austria-Hungary
from 1878. In 1908 it was returned to the Ottoman Empire as part of the Kosovo
Vilayet, but taken over by the Kingdom of Serbia
in 1912, during the First Balkan War. The area has traditionally had a large number of Albanians
and Muslim Slavs with a different culture from the Orthodox Serbs.[9] A contemporary report stated that when the Serb forces entered the Sandjak of Novi Pazar, they "pacified" the Albanians.[10] In 1913, Novi Pazar
Novi Pazar
officially became part of the Kingdom of Serbia, and as such, became part of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia
Kingdom of Yugoslavia
in 1918. From 1929 to 1941, Novi Pazar
Novi Pazar
was part of the Zeta Banovina
Zeta Banovina
of the Yugoslavia. In the Battle for Novi Pazar, fought at the end of 1941 during the Second World War, the Chetniks, initially supported by the Partisans, tried to capture Novi Pazar
Novi Pazar
but eventually failed. After the overthrow of Slobodan Milošević on 5 October 2000, newly elected Prime Minister of Serbia
Zoran Đinđić
Zoran Đinđić
made considerable efforts to help economically the whole area of Novi Pazar. Also, with the help of Đinđić, the International University of Novi Pazar
International University of Novi Pazar
was founded in 2002. He made close relations with the leaders of Bosniaks, as part of his wider plan to reform Serbia.[11] Twelve years following his assassination, the Novi Pazar
Novi Pazar
Assembly decided to rename one street in his name.[12] Today, Novi Pazar
Novi Pazar
is one of the largest cities in southwestern Serbia, and the main economic and cultural center of Bosniaks of Serbia
and the historical region of Sandžak. Demographics[edit]
