Archeology Hall, Tinkers Alley, King Milan Square and The Monument to the Liberators of Niš, The Fortress

Archeology Hall – In the Archaeological Hall, you will have the opportunity to get to know the civilizational development of Serbia and Europe from prehistory to the Middle Ages. Here, among other things, a valuable treasure of ancient Naissus awaits you, such as sculptures of Roman deities, coins, mosaic pieces, temple fences, as well as a portrait of the most famous Roman born in Niš – Constantine the Great.

Tinkers Alley – Tinkers Alley is the last preserved street of the former town of Niš. At the beginning of the 19th century, it was a craftsman’s alley, with a large number of potters’ workshops, hence its name. The buildings in Tinkers Alley have been renovated over time and arranged as restaurants, cafes, taverns and hotels that have retained the spirit of old architecture.

King Milan Square – The Monument to the Liberators of Niš (1937), with its beauty and size, occupies the central part of King Milan Square, the central square in Niš. This monument is considered one of the most significant works of Yugoslav sculpture, and its author is Antun Augustinčić, a famous Croatian and Yugoslav sculptor. The monument was erected as a symbol of the liberation wars that were fought in Niš during the rule of the Ottoman Empire and during the First World War. At the top of the monument is a horseman with a flag that symbolizes the arrival of freedom, and in the middle part is Stevan Sindjelić The Battle of Čegar and Kole Rašić who calls on the people of Niš to revolt.

The Fortress – Niš Fortress is one of the most beautiful and best preserved medieval fortresses in the Central Balkans. It visually dominates the city center and occupies an area of 22 hectares. The mighty, stone ramparts are 2100 meters long, 8 meters high and 3 meters wide. It was built by the Romans, Byzantines and Serbs, demolished and rebuilt several times, to be given its final appearance by the Ottomans in 1730. Apart from the well-preserved massive stone walls and gates, numerous remains of the turbulent history of Niš can be seen in The Fortress.
