    Most of the exhibits have English text. The rooms are presented in chronological order to give an overview of the history of the camp. Yes, some exhibits are confronting but the people who suffered here deserve to have their stories preserved and remembered. Relatively small exhibition over three floors that can be covered in an hour. Only stairs and no wheelchair access. We highly recommend a visit.

    Free entry - see some restored byzantine buildings.
    The space inside the fortress has been developed into a lovely public park, with eateries and even a jazz museum. The exhibit signs are in Serbian and English. Unfortunately, vandals have spray painted many of the signs. The footpaths are good and there is a slight incline near the southern boundary. Easy walking and a good view over Nis. You can even go into the old moat to walk on the grass. Didn't find any public toilets.

    The Ćele Kula is a monument to the First Serbian uprising in 1809 and fortunately a chapel was built around it in 1892. There was a guide on site who was bilingual and she explained that the site originally had over 950 skulls but the monument had been uncovered for eighty years and families of some of the soldiers removed some of the skulls to provide a proper burial and so now there were only 58. There is a short history of the uprising and the battle against the Ottoman army on one of the walls that is comprehensive. Worth seeing but it is a small monument. It would have been ideal if the exhibit was expanded to include more information of the Ottoman occupation of the region.

    An interesting and funny monument of Serbian writer Stevan Sremac and his friend Kalča. The monument is located in a pedestrian zone with lots of cafes where you can have a cup of coffee and relax in the shade.

    We got here on the #2 bus from the crntral square in Niš. A friendly passenger from the bus told us to get off at the end of the line and walk up a hill to reach the entrance. The wooded path to the memorial is dedicated to the partsan fighters of World War II. We were practically alone with the three towering sculptures on a Winter Monday afternoon. Under gloomy skies we contemplated the unknown number of men, women and children executed by the Nazis here.

    Pleasant to stroll along at all times of day, but especially at sunset. The fortress walls across the river and the young people hanging out create a nice atmosphere.

    Monument to Liberators of Nis is located in a great square, the King Milan Square (or Kralja Milana Trg, in Serbian) and it commemorate the liberation of Serbia of Ottoman rulers and in 1st Worls War. It represents a horse rider with a flag, which symbolise the freedom of the country. It is very nice and emotive and you can see it from the square or, in our case, from Ambasador Hotel located in the square.

    This 16th-century mosque is located inside Nis Fortress. It is a lovely historic building and worth visiting.

    Although the Hall itself could be a bit bigger, having in mind the number f ancient artefacts found in various locations around the city of Niš, the current exposition is quite interesting and therefore it is totally worth a visit (especially if you're into ancient/Roman history and archeology). Take your time and enjoy the wonders made my ancestors that were excavated centuries after they died.

    An elegant but affordable luxury in an historic home in the heart of Niš. The chef here offers “New Balkan cuisine,” a modern twist on traditional Serbian flavors. They have both vegetarian dishes and a non-smoking area, rare to find in this meat-loving, smoking part of the world. The beet soup was perfect for a cold night, followed by fresh sea bass with vegetables. Meat eaters will enjoy the meatballs stuffed with cheese and bacon. Courteous, professional service by an English-speaking waiter who reminded us that tip was not included in the bill. Reasonable prices for the top quality.
