Looking for an original city break in Europe? Think of Niš, Serbia’s third largest city, located 250 km southeast of Belgrade. The city is an architectural kaleidoscope with its fortress dating back from the Ottoman time to monuments and skyscrapers reflecting Tito era in the 1970s, but also lively bohemian quarters in the baroque old town. A special experience is the popular Nisville Jazz Festival with its joyful crowds.
Pristine landscapes such as Sicevo Gorge and Suva mountain are just around the corner.
Niš is easily accessible from Germany with flights from Berlin, Dortmund, Frankfurt, Friedrichshafen, Hanover, Karlsruhe, Munich or Nuremberg.
