About Nis Fortress, Nis
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.

Nis Fortress, Nis Reviews
Beautiful fortress in the heart of Nis! Very green and very well maintained! It has various historical things to be seen, including the only remaining mosque from the Otoman times. Inside you can find also a lovely city garden, with beautiful flowers and some animals. Lots of bars to relax!
Nice place to go for a walk. It has wonderful nature to play in, and a lot of benches to rest on. And there are a lot of historic buildings and monuments to admire and study.
Nice place overall. A bit run-down. could be a great park if properly cared for.
Absolutely awesome, richly historical site, with lots of cafés among nature, and a large park for walks, picnics and relaxation right in the midst of the city center, overlooking the beautiful Nişava river. Oh, and the best souvenir shop in Niş - you shouldn't miss it!
A lot of greenery, peacefull but in the city...great history of Niš!😊 there's a lot of caffees where you can enjoy fresh beverages😊
