Create an itinerary including Nis Fortress
Tour the well-preserved Nis Fortress, built by the Ottoman forces in the early 18th century on foundations of former Roman and medieval structures. Stretching over a vast area of 22 hectares (54 acres), the site preserves remains of former gunpowder stores, a 16th-century mosque, and numerous military structures. In addition, a Turkish bath from the 15th century that sits within the fortress represents one of the oldest remaining non-religious Ottoman structures. The site also hosts a number of events and art expositions, as well as the city's official weather station. Wear comfortable shoes when visiting, as the roads can be uneven. Our Nis online attractions planner makes visiting Nis Fortress and other Nis attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Fortress in the centre of the town, nice for a short walk. There are schedules briefly explaining the historical context, worth visiting!

  • A nice well preserved fortress, but unfortunately not well maintained. Historical spots are great. However, it is not clean, the grass and flowers don't look very nice. There is much more space for improvement!
  • A place known also for great cultural manifestation, such as Nisville Jazz Festival and Movie Festival. It is lovely to be in Niš in August and visit these, feel the spirit and hospitality of citizens.
