History

Tombs dating to the Early Iron Age have been discovered on a number of sites in the municipality.[2] Mokronog was first mentioned in 1137, and acquired market rights in 1279. In around 1340, a wall was built around the town, of which only a tower now remains. The town suffered severely from Ottoman raids in the 16th and 17th century and it lost most of its population. It regained some of its former importance only in early 19th century when it became a center of leather industry. The leather factory was completely destroyed in 1943 by a Nazi air strike.
