Pleasently suprised with Nis. Fortress is beatiful, well preserved, with big park, great for walking. It looks similar to Belgrade Kalemegdan Fortress. Definitly worth visiting

Nice place to walk and drink something at evening
Nov 2019 • Friends
Nis Fortress is the well preserved fortress in the center of the homonymous town. In fact, Nis is the most important town in the Southern Serbia. This fortress is an open-air and free place, where nowadays there is a public park, where you can walk, relax, do a picnic or, at evening, drink something in one of the bars, which are here. We came here a November-2019 morning, and all was closed, so we only walk around the place, see some buildings and views of the city and some historical monuments. Nice.

Niš Fortress (Serbian: Нишка тврђава / Niška tvrđava) is a fortress in the city of Niš, Serbia. It is a complex and important cultural and historical monument. It rises on the right bank of the Nišava River, overlooking the area inhabited for longer than two millennia. It was protected by law in May 1948 as it was declared a cultural site of great significance. The current condition of the fortress lists it as one of the best preserved fortifications of this kind in Serbia as well as on the Balkan Peninsula. The existing fortification is of Ottoman Turkish origin, dating from the first decades of the 18th century (1719–1723). It is well known as one of the most significant and best preserved monuments of this kind in the mid-Balkans. The Fortress was erected on the site of earlier fortifications – the ancient Roman, Byzantine, and later yet Medieval forts. During World War I it was occupied by Bulgarians who turned it into a prison where Serbian patriots were imprisoned.

Inside of the Fortress is excellent restaurant for everyone taste. Best time for visiting is spring and summer, since there are a lot of happenings inside Fortress. Film festival, Choir competition, Jazz festival Nisville and many others.

I thought this will be one of the best places to see in Nis, I was wrong tho. And the reason why is that people been ruining this nice place you can see graffiti all over the inside of the fortress and the city doesn’t seem to care much about the place either. Instead of making it a bit nicer, all you get is jazz museum (i dont understand its point in the fortress at all) and a cheap looking bar with loud playing amusement park type of music... oh, and one and only souvenir shop I’ve seen in Nis (I’m happy bout this tho). Why 2 stars? One star for nice looking fortress from outside and the other star for the souvenir shop.

Not enough time
Jan 2020 • Couples
Only had a short time to wander around so missed a lot of what is there. Nevertheless, we saw a little bit of what was there. Old remains surrounded by parks, trees and retailers. We are told there's a moat and further archeological finds deeper into the fortress area which I'm sure would have interested us immensely. Sadly, not enough time.

Disappointment
Nov 2019 • Couples
This is supposed to be the main attraction in Niš but it was all littered down and really not taken care off and it was just such a dissapoinment to see it. This should be a much more taken care off and respected part of their history.

Vast fortress close to center of town
Nov 2019 • Family
A large complex close to the center of town, interesting walk through and around the fort. Lot's of bars and a venue for live bands. Much better in the summer months.
