Nis Fortress - Review

This is a huge fortress situated right in the middle of the city. It covers an area of 22 hectares and is located at the serene banks of the Nisava River. It is one of the most significant and well-preserved monuments in the Balkans. The walls are about 8m high. The blocks are evenly shaped. A large moat encircles the structure. In the past, it was filled by river water, whenever the need arose. The Turkish architecture is prominent. Throughout its history, the fortress has been brought down and rebuilt several times. But its essence has not been lost.

Highlights include:

  • The four Large Gates
  • Bali-Beg mosque from the 16th century
  • A Turkish Bath that was built in the 15th century
  • Restaurants and cafes
  • Stone Artifacts
  • Music and Film Festivals

Nis Fortress, Nis Reviews

  • Excellent place to relax in the shade, visit cool coffee places or a night club. Or just escape the city and feel like you are miles away from the city noise. We shot a Game of Thrones themed video there - there are some great medieval locations offered. :)

  • The "train" ride for my kids was very popular. There is a nice souvenir shop with very helpful staff (who also spoke English well). The park is lovely for walking around. The ruins were interesting to view. The art exhibit was nice to see and they welcomed kids.

  • Inside the fortress you will find a big park with the main historical attractions. Also there are 4-5 cafe bars/restaurants, cinema, etc. Perfect place for a walk or dinning.

  • Jazz Festivities in August gather thousands of music fans and welcome artists, musicians and tourists from the region and from abroad. The center of the city and the Fortress feature events and activities dedicated to the celebration of music!

  • Nice and quiet part of the city where you can have a beer, sit and relax or go for a walk. They also hold the yearly jazz festival there too.
