Tuzla is the economic, scientific, cultural, education, health and tourist centre of northeast Bosnia. The settlement of Tuzla has always been closely tied to its salt resources. The oldest written records, left behind by Greek, prove that even they were aware of the regions' salts. Tuzla received its name much later. The present-day name is derived from the Turkish word Tuz, meaning salt. The first Ottoman document recording the exploitation of Tuzla's saltwater springs dates from 1548.
Tuzla has long been known as a waterless city. Therefor, a big fountain (česma) was installed sometimes during Turkish rule on what used to be the main square.
