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.

This tour to the city of Niš in Serbia is a wonderful opportunity to get to know one more country for the list when in Sofia, Bulgaria. The trip was made with a very small group, so it soon became a great personalized experience. The tour was amazing, mainly thanks to the company of our guide Daniel, who gave one of the best experiences I've ever had in my life. A very professional, intelligent and fun guide, he informed us many very interesting things about serbian customs and history, also guiding us to a lot of famous places of the city of Niš. So friendly that at the end of the day we could say he was already our friend. I highly recommend this tour, the company Bultrips and also the fantastic guide Daniel.

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.
