Nis Fortress, Nis

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.
