If you want to relax or just lay in open air- you are welcome here. There were a lot of trains for children that were travelling around. If you like history here you will find a lot of such places to visit. and also you can touch them, climb.

Beautiful old fortress which has been rebuilt several times. There are remnants of old roman structures inside and a lovely park. The amphitheater is quite interesting and there are music festivals here at times.

The fortress of Nis, gives an average viewing if to be compared with Belgrade Fortress.

Well preserved fortress in the heart of the city, big park with some cool bars. A visit to the "tvrđava" is worth.

The Fortress of Niš is a typical Turkish fortification on the outside, but the inside hides many interesting details.
