DescriptionYour tour will begin once you are collected from your accommodation. After just over 2 hours of driving, you will reach Niš. From here your day is reserved for your exploration of the birth city of the famous Roman Emperor, Constantine the Great. You will begin by visiting the Niš Fortress, which lies on the bank of Nišava River. It assumed its final shape in 1723, at which point the Turks completed it whilst facing the end of their reign in this area. Its construction required that over 40 stone cutters from Constantinople, and around 400 bricklayers from Niš had to be hired. You will continue your sightseeing of the most important sights in the city including the Banovina Building, The Niš Liberators Monument at King Milan Square, the Monument of well-known Serbian writer Stevan Sremac. You will then explore the Mediana Archeological Site and the infamous Skull Tower (which was erected by the Turks as an example to others of the folly of opposition to their rule). Your tour will then conclude with a visit to the Red Cross Nazi Concentration Camp, which is today a museum. The German Gestapo operated the camp and held captured Jews, Serbians, and Romas during the Second World War. After that, you will have free time for individual activities in Niš and to try some of the traditional delicacies for which Niš is widely famous.
