It is mostly marked by Turkish signature, but has older-Roman, and more recent constructions. There is Hamam, Mosque, Saloon, Roman monument, a new building which is part of National Archive... I liked it.

The exterior walls are impressive. And, there are some buildings inside the fortress with English signs. But, mostly this is a urban park. Lots of the locals strolling through the park.

It is definitely the highlight of Nis. A nice place to stroll around for 1-2 hours. You can walk around on the walls. Some of the buildings are not really in good shape and are primarily used as wild toilets.

The fortress of Nis is not the biggest and best in the world, but it is definitely worth the visit and the time to spend alone or with friends or family. Inside the walls there are tons of beautiful details and is definitely a place worth visiting if you are near Nis.

The Nis fortress is not something special. There is nothing special to see. This is like a fortress in Belgrade

Though not as grand as Kalemegdan in Belgrade, Niš Fortress is very historic with buildings, food, shops and a nice place to take a stroll or ride a bike.
