The city of Niš, miraculous and unusual in all respects, has an extremely favourable geographical position. It is located in the fertile Nišava River basin, and is protected by the necks of the proud Suva Planina Mountain, the gentle hills of Seličevica Mountain, the ridges of the Svrljiške Mountains as well as Kalafat Mountain, forming the so-called 130 km long Niš Transversal (long distance hiking tour), which offers nature lovers a magical experience

Niš is a crossroads, because two important road routes pass through it, one for Sofia and Constantinople known as “Via Militaris”, and the other for Thessaloniki better known as “Via Egnatia”.

As a city at an important crossroads, it could not avoid any military campaign, any conquering appetite of the occupiers, so in its millennial existence it was conquered, destroyed and destroyed countless times.
