Doboj like this metthe end of the VVorld VVar II. After the construction of normal - gauge rail netvvork Samac - Sarajevo, Doboj railway station becomes first class railway knot. Construction of a bridge across Bosna river was inevitable. Presented solution was a right angled street connecting the new bridge and the railway station .Hovvthisfourth centre of the tovvn of Doboj was going to look like depended on the vvill or the talent of the then urban planner. Governing concepts of the 20th century prefered solutions that had bigger parks. Sociorealistic needs won, so huge space for meetings was created and the green part vvas named 'Park of the heroes'.
