Placed at the banks of the River Nisava, at the very centre of the Balkans, Nis has always been important traffic intersection. Today Nis is economic, academic and cultural centre of south Serbia.

In antique Nis, Emperor Constantine the Great was born. He is remembered in history as a ruler who fundamentally changed the world – he built Constantinople, and by the Edict of Milan, he formally allowed the religion of the Christians.

The fortress is the symbol of the city and its one of the most beautiful and best preserved edifices of the Turkish military architecture in the middle Balkans.

As tourists stroll down the city center of Nis, they will come to little cobble-stoned street lined with cafes, bars and restaurants, which formerly was Turkish craftsmen bazaar. There they are met by Kalca, bronze sculpture of literary character, who is the one to welcome and say farewell.

Nis is one of the stops on the Roman Emperor Trails, a tourist tour through Serbia featuring birthplaces of 17 Roman emperors.
