Nis Fortress is located to the North of the river. You can walk there from the center of the city or find parking place on both sides of the bridge. Parking is paid on working days from 7AM to 9PM and from 7AM to 2PM on Saturdays. The entrance is free. Once you enter the gate you find yourself in... More

Nice aria but unfortunately I didn't feel there is something special. I visited many times and it's still looks the same. The garden around is good for walking but you can't have your rest for a coffee.

I think they should be paid more attentions for this place. I had visited this place many times and it's same all the time. Nothing new. Nice garden but there are not good shops or cafes to have rest.

Beautiful park situated in a Fortress with lots of monuments from different periods, mostly Otoman rule in southern Serbia. There are few bars that are suitable for a coffee during the day but also work as pubs/clubs during night. Must see while in Nis.

It was a very hot day & our time was limited so we got in the little train that runs around the grounds, we had the entire vehicle to ourselves & the man was happy to set off with payment of 200 dinars for my sister & i. If we'd have had more time we'd have walked around & explored... More

This is a really nice green space in the heart of the city. There is an amphitheater used for summer concerts and films. Nearby is a nice cafe for a coffee on the terrace. There are a few historical sites as well as stone artifacts housed within the fortress, and one can walk on the walls for nice views over... More

Very interesting place, steeped in history, plenty of bars and restaurants and places to relax, as well as a nice park to stroll around and the river and city centre nearby.

Walking through the gardens of the fortress was very popular with the local people, and students. If you carry straight on you will come to the Concentration Camp, which is not well signposted, but also worth a short visit.

I have visited this place several times with my son, there is something on offer from young and old. In the summer the place is alive with the music from the Jazz Festival. There is a tourist information desk at the gate where they speak English and are more than helpful. They let us leave our luggage there once for... More
