Departure in the morning hours (around 8AM), and the drive to Djavolja Varos, for approximately 3 hours. The unique natural monument Djavolja Varos is located 288 km away from Belgrade, and 89 km from Nis, in the south of Serbia, near Prolom Banja. This natural monument consists of two very rare natural phenomena. The ground figures, as unique relief forms and mineral water sources with a very high amount of acidity make the place unique in this part of Europe.

The surrounding natural environment is very specific, so it gives an even more mystical shape to the whole region. The area has been created to the soil erosion, because of the big amount of mineral water consists of 202 earth pyramids made of sandstone and marl, with “caps” on the top. After the organized tour of the entire locality, we continue the tour to Nis. After an hour drive, we stop in the center of the city, where we continue the tour to the fortress. Nis has been an administrative, military and trade center of various states and empires, which he belonged to during his long history. In the area of todays Nis, which was ancient town Nais, roman imperators were born – Constantine the Great and Constance III.

The geographical position of Nis has made it strategically important and because of that alluring to many conquerors. During the history, on the territory where the present city is located, many nations have passed through – the Dardanians, the Tracarians, the Illyrians, the Celts, the Romans, the Huns, the Avars, and then the Byzantines, the Serbs, the Bulgarians and the Ottomans. On several occasions the town was occupied by the Hungarians and the Austrians. The Nis Fortress, located on the banks of the Nisava river, in the city center, is one of the most beautiful and well-preserved buildings of Turkish military architecture on the middle Balkan. It was demolished and renewed several times, by the Romans, through the Byzantines, the Slavs, the Bulgarians and the Serbs. It has obtained its final appearance in 1723., when it was erected by the Turks at the end of their rule in this region. For its construction, over 40 stonecutters from Constantinople and about 400 masons from Nis and the surrounding area have worked on it. It was built in the area of over 22 hectares, with ramparts 2100 meters long and 8 meters high, with an average width of 3 meters. On the outside, the fortress was surrounded by areas filled with water, and its northern part has been saved till today.

After visiting the fortress, you will have free time for individual activities. Return to Belgrade at the agreed time, the drive will last for about two and a half hours.
