In this thesis paper, the author examines the characteristics of the urban development of Požega using methods from the field of urban history. The work is going to determine the aspects of continuity and discontinuity in the pre-Ottoman and during the Ottoman times, until the establishment of Požega County in 1745. The aim is to show the main features of the urban development of Požega from the 16th to 18th century. In the Middle Ages, Požega is primarily a church and county center. Dominicans and Franciscans play an important role in the city development, and the shape and appearance of the city are determined by its burgus and suburb. During Ottoman times Požega stays an important center, but it transforms into an oriental town which is a sign of discontinuity. After the liberation of Požega in 1691. the city slowly recovered from difficult circumstances. The centrality of Požega and it geostrategic location stimulated the recovery, also helped by the Jesuits who improved culture, print, and medicine and restored urban life. Nevertheless, Požega showed signs of oriental town with its „Turkish“ houses and special architectonic features until the establishment of Požega county which marked the start of new recovery and prosperity.
