While not as big or as impressive as the fortress in belgrade this makes a pleasant walk and serves as a reminder of Turkish influence here and the wars that were fought

I wouldn't bother checking out fortress in Nis unless you were passing through. If you have been to Belgrade fortress,Nis is not worth the trip as a side trip as I did from Belgrade.

Turcs have built this forteress in 17th century above Roman's city foundations and even used to usurp their structures for their own purposes; under this forteress they supposed to use some katakombes, but there is never enough money to prove their existance and explore more of forteress...

The Nis Fortress is just the best! I love sitting at the cafes, taking a stroll through the park, and studying its historical sections. This is my favorite place to visit in Nis, and it is right in the heart of the city.

This is a vast fortress that's like a park when you get inside. Many festivals are held there; a jazz festival was going on when I visited, and if you don't mind a walk, there is a wonderful section of ancient Roman cemetary with pictures of the families on the tombs, and several ruins.

Wonderful park-style fortress in Niš featuring a handful of casual eateries/bars and a nightclub with a permit to operate until 6:30AM. My only regret was polishing off a bottle of vodka with only two helpers :)

Interesting place, plenty of interesting places to look at. Well defined points of interest. A good place to hide from the heat and relax. A few nice pubs.
