For the younger generations, discovering the beauty of travel for the first time and visiting us within their student study trips, we recommend THE RIDE THROUGH THE HISTORY OF NIŠ. It is a six-hour sightseeing program which will remain entrenched in their memory and make them wish to return to Niš and learn of its spiritual seats, CHURCHES, MOSQUES AND THE CITY SINAGOGUE. In addition, they will be able to complete the picture by visiting the MONASTERIES OF NIŠ DIOCESE - ADROVAC, ST.ROMAN, NAUPARA, POGANOVO, SUKOVO, DIVLJANE.


1st hour: Driving along to the ancient site Mediana, empire residence – rich and luxury equipped suburb of the roman Naissus. On the exact half way ride, between the Spa of Nis and today's centre of the city, Romans had built their luxury villas and they had organized themselves not to be dependent by the city of Naissus. Rich and beautiful floor mosaics contribute to this fact.

The view of the city from a „King's balcony“, built on this site is breathtaking (a shorter brake for a coffe, juice, and traditionaly – bread, salt and rakija). The road takes us back to the city towards the one and only Scull Tower. The Hurhid pasha's (head commander of turskish army and the city of Nis) idea of building a tower made out of human (Serbian) sculls, on one of the main city roads – eastern entrance gate, had a troumandance consequences on the future of this part of Serbia.
