Zrínyi-Újvár – A Seventeenth-Century Border Defence System on the Edge of the Ottoman Empire

5.000 Ft

The Fortress of Zrínyi-Újvár was built by Miklós Zrínyi, poet and military leader, near the confluence of the Drava and the Mura, on the left bank of the Mura, opposite Kanizsa in 1661. It played an important role in international anti-Ottoman schemes and served as a casus belli for the outbreak of the great Ottoman– Habsburg War of 1663–1664. During the war, after a more than three-week long siege, the Ottoman forces seized the fortress on 30 June 1664. Subsequently, they razed it to the ground. The stronghold, which had existed for merely three years, disappeared from the face of the earth for good.
The history of the location, role, building and destruction of Zrínyi-Újvár came back to the forefront of international interest with the launch of cross-border, interdisciplinary research programs in the mid-1990s, which focused on the historical research of this special border region flanked by the Mura and Drava. Connected to these, researchers at the Faculty of Military Science and Officer Training at the National University of Public Service and its predecessor have been conducting systematic battlefield investigations at the site since 2005. The extensive, multi-perspective investigations “have enlisted” a number of new procedures and technologies. Our volume presents these methods and the diverse research results obtained with their help.
