Sažetak The settlement of Petrinja in Croatia was mentioned in documents in the first half of the thirteenth century. All trace of that Petrinja disappeared in the first half of the sixteenth century therefore the site of that, so-called "Old Petrinja" cannot be located today. The town known as Petrinja was born in 1592 when the Turkish troop commander Hasan-Pasha Predojević built a wooden fort near the confluenee of the Petrinjčica and the Kupa.
Jn Petrinja's 400-year long history we can differentiate five time periods of urban development:
1. Turkish fort (1592-1595)
2. Christian fort (1595-1703)
3. Town in the Military frontier (1703-1881)
4. Civil town in Croatia (1881-1945)
5. Modern town in Croatia (1945-1991)
ln the first period there was only the fort itself, with no civil houses inside or outside it. Civil and military houses began to spread outside the fort in the second period. In the third period began the real urban development of Petrinja. After the demolition of the remaining fort ruins the town began its "finger spreading" following the regional roads (Glina to the west; Kostajnica to the south; Sisak to the east). The forth period was characterized by sudden industrial development (the Gavrilović Meat Factory). The seventh decade of the present century brought the town its most intensive urban development (about 20 town plans were made).
Petrinjas development sank to zero level at the beginning of September 1991 when the aggression upon Croatia started. Plans of development were replaced by plans of destruction drawn up in the sick minds of some politicians and generals.
