From Sofia: Day Tour to Nis, Serbia

1. From Sofia: Day Tour to Nis, Serbia

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.

Belgrade: Private Day-Trip to Niš

2. Belgrade: Private Day-Trip to Niš

Your tour will begin once you are collected from your accommodation. After just over 2 hours of driving, you will reach Niš. From here your day is reserved for your exploration of the birth city of the famous Roman Emperor, Constantine the Great. You will begin by visiting the Niš Fortress, which lies on the bank of Nišava River. It assumed its final shape in 1723, at which point the Turks completed it whilst facing the end of their reign in this area. Its construction required that over 40 stone cutters from Constantinople, and around 400 bricklayers from Niš had to be hired. You will continue your sightseeing of the most important sights in the city including the Banovina Building, The Niš Liberators Monument at King Milan Square, the Monument of well-known Serbian writer Stevan Sremac. You will then explore the Mediana Archeological Site and the infamous Skull Tower (which was erected by the Turks as an example to others of the folly of opposition to their rule). Your tour will then conclude with a visit to the Red Cross Nazi Concentration Camp, which is today a museum. The German Gestapo operated the camp and held captured Jews, Serbians, and Romas during the Second World War. After that, you will have free time for individual activities in Niš and to try some of the traditional delicacies for which Niš is widely famous.

We really enjoyed our day tour to Serbia and would definitely recommend this. Our tour guide was fantastic (I can’t remember his name sorry!) There was only 3 of us but this made it better in my opinion. We visited 3 sites..skull tower, the concentration camp and the fortress. We then had however long we wanted to wander the town and have something to eat. Worth doing whilst visiting Sofia!

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.

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.

Meto was such a great guide! He has endless knowledge of Serbia and Bulgaria. We had so much fun and learned so much. Great way to experience Serbia- really well planned trip.

Excellent tour. Our guide was amazing and incredibly friendly, showing all the sights around Nis. He was incredibly flexible and happy to accommodate. Thank you!
