    The Balkan is called a Land of Honey & Blood. Its strategic location between two continents has been subjected to territorial invasions of today's Serbia, by many empires through centuries. The city of Niš is situated at the crossroads of the most important Balkan and European traffic routes, known for ages as Via Militaris. The route runs from northern Serbia and capital Belgrade towards the south to Thessaloniki and Athens, and the east, to Istanbul, and further to the Middle East. Due to its turbulent history, Niš became a so-called city museum and an interesting destination for those tourists who want to explore more about the Great Epochs that had left their traces here.

    Tour of the National Museum, which has today over 40,000 items in its holdings from archeology, history, art history, numismatics and epigraphy, ethnology. And the literary legacy of Stevan Sremac, a famous writer, and Branko Miljković, a poet. At the museum, tourists can see the most significant artifacts found in Mediana.

    The city walk continues along Obrenovićeva Street to Banovina, the former building of the old Niš administration and the Cabinet of the Prime Minister of Serbia, Nikola Pasić, in which he received a telegram, on July 28, 1914, by which Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia, formally marking the beginning of the First World War.

    A tour of the Niš Fortress, a symbol of the city and one of the best-preserved fortresses in the Balkans, with preserved buildings from the Ottoman Empire and archeological excavations from the period of the Roman Empire. 

    The Cafe Restaurant Pozornica at the summer stage, well integrated into the configuration of the fortress, is a place where we will take a break and taste southern Serbia's wine & bites.

In sightseeing and tasting four completely different ways of cultivating wine, you will experience four different wine epochs, characteristic for those times, the Roman, medieval Serbia of the Nemanjić dynasty, the Serbian house, and the modern winery.
