Full description
During this day tour you will travel through history with the professional lead of your guide. Your journey through time will start from the Roman period, when Nis gave to the world the Roman Emperor, Constantine the Great. You will then continue through the Middle Ages and the period of the Ottoman rule, which left constructions like the Nis Fortress and the Skull Tower, a symbol of the struggle for freedom and independence from the Ottomans, as well as a representation of the violence of the time. The latter of the tour will pay attention to modern history, in particular the period of Nazi occupation of former Yugoslavia by visiting a Nazi concentration camp. Following this concentration camp visit, it will be time for some rest. During this stop you will have the chance to taste typical Serbian cuisine, which is one of the most delicious of the Balkans. You will also have free time for a walk in the historical old part of the old city. At the conclusion of your tour, you will be returned back to your accommodation in Sofia.

A very well organized activity, which covers in a short period of time and in a very enjoyable way, the main tourist attractions of Nis. Our guide was incredibly pleasant, kind and explanatory, helping us to spend an unforgettable time. The city is small, but beautiful, and full of a lot of history. Highly recommended!

A great day out and our guide Boris was excellent with a comprehensive knowledge of region and its history. He was friendly and happy to answer any questions. The only disappointment was the size of the car Get Your Guide had allocated for the journey which for 4 of us, 5 including Boris, was rather cramped.

A relatively short trip to Niš and visiting its most important monuments (fortress, Skull Tower) and an important place - a concentration camp. Unfortunately, the Roman architectural excavations were closed. Lots of free time in Niš. The trip was almost individual - four people. Driver - friendly, well-organized guide with perfect English. He could tell in an interesting way.
