Tvrđa is the oldest part of the city of Osijekmarker in Croatiamarker. Construction started in 1687 when the Habsburg armies drove the Ottomans out of the city. Over the subsequent 35 years, Austrianmarker engineers built barracks, staff headquarters, churches and monasteries, surrounded by system of moats, bastions and gun positions. While most of the fortifications have been demolished, the centre of the Tvrđa remains intact. It also has a large church that was built in 1778.

The building of the general headquarters, dating from 1726, and the ground plan of the fortress are depicted on the reverse of the Croatian 200 kuna banknote, issued in 1993 and 2002.
