Nis City Tour: Full-Day Trip from Sofia

1. Nis City Tour: Full-Day Trip from Sofia

The Serbian city of Nis is growing in popularity as a tourist destination. On this full-day trip from Sofia, you’ll enjoy a scenic drive to this picturesque, relaxed city that dates back to Roman times. Nis was the birthplace of Constantine the Great, the first Christian Emperor. It is home to one of the oldest churches in Serbia, dating to the 4th century, located in the suburb of Medijana. You’ll find some fortress remains, a shopping street, and lovely gardens. The approach to Nis is very scenic, with the road passing through a river gorge. Your first stop is to visit the famous Cele Kula (Skull Tower). Learn about the atrocities committed by the Turks and see the unique monument to the sacrifice of Serbian revolutionaries. The next important site is in suburban Medijana, where you’ll explore an archeological site of a Roman estate. See remains of an ancient villa, a granary, villas, and baths. The museum houses sculptures and portraits of Roman gods and goddesses, utensils for daily use, and other objects unearthed at the site. You’ll have some free time to walk around the central square and try the famous Serbian grill for lunch. After lunch, your driver will take you to a small concentration camp that was set up by the Germans during World War 2 to imprison and exterminate Jews, Romas, and other minorities. At 16:00 you’ll begin the trip back to Sofia, expecting to arrive at about 18:30.

What people are saying about Niš

Very fun and varied trip

A lovely tour with lots of interesting things to see. It was so easy to arrange and you were taken everywhere so you didn't have to do anything. The drive was lovely and you enjoy a lot of incredible scenery. There are a few things included which are fun and different and the free time is just enough to see the centre without it dragging on for too long. The guide was nice and friendly and knew a lot about the history of the region. I would definitely recommend this trip if you want to do something a little bit different.

I didn't know until I planned this trip to Bulgaria, but I came to know that there are birthplaces of Emperor Constantine, other historical sights and cheap and delicious restaurants. It takes about 3 hours each way, but I'm glad I went. It was nice that I didn't take much time at the border than I heard.

My daughter and I visited Nis with the tour guide Adrian. The tour was really amazing, Adrian is a very nice guy, so intelligent, patient, an excellent guide, very professional, he is extremely knowledgable about all places that we have visited with him. I higly recommend him to anyone. Thanks from Brazil!

Our guide, Alex, was friendly and knowledgable and we enjoyed our day with him. We liked him so much we booked a tour for the next day and hoped he would be our guide.

Kris was very inforrmative with a deep knowledge of Balkan history.

Wonderful birthday present to myself! Serbian meals are huge - beware!
