Day Tour from Sofia to Niš, Serbia

The third largest city of Serbia

Niš is a popular day trip destination from Sofia. Beautiful city center, delicious inexpensive food and traditional Serbian souvenirs, what else is needed for a pleasant stay.

However, behind the pleasant center and excellent restaurants of Niš, much more is hidden. Several layers of history dating back thousands of years, at least until the glorious times of the Roman Empire.

The city is littered with cultural and historical monuments that confirm that Niš has always had a key role in history, both in ancient Rome and in the Ottoman Empire. Today it is the third largest city in Serbia.

    What you will see on a day trip from Sofia to Niš

    Niš Fortress

    The fortress is one of the main attractions of the city and probably the most visited. It was used as a fortification for centuries.

    Today there is a beautiful park with establishments, a tourist train and attractions for children and adults. Niš fortress is one of the well-preserved and beautiful medieval fortresses in the Balkans.

    The Median

    Median is the most tangible legacy left over from Constantine the Great. Huge summer residence, located a few kilometers from the city, and today on its outskirts. The estate was built in the 4th century on an area of 40 hectares. In the western part of the estate there were terms, and in the eastern part there was a nympheum (nymphs sanctuary). The remains of the Median are open to visitors (subject to availability).

    Tower of Skulls (Chele Kula)

    After Median, the second famous landmark of Niš is Chele Kula. One dramatic and frightening place.

    Concentration camp Niš

    Niš Concentration Camp is located in the “Red Cross” quarter, and is one of the few fully preserved concentration camps in Europe. It was used during the German occupation of Serbia from 1941 to 1945.
