Naissus (Niš) at the crossroads of South-East-Europe
Naissus or in modern times Niš is the third largest town in Serbia. It lies on the crossroads of South-East Europe: to the North you will find Belgrade (and further Northern/Western Europe) to the South you go to Athens and to the Southeast towards Sofia -Istanbul and further towards Asia Minor. Niš is also the birthplace of Constantine the Great, a Roman Emperor.
We went for a long weekend to Niš and we enjoyed it: it is a very nice town were the people are very friendly and when you are used to Belgrade everything goes a bit more “samo polako” (just relax). Is the mentality of the South ( it seems to exist in every country) ? The splendid nature around Niš ? The rich culture and history ? The good food and drinks? I don ‘t know , we just enjoyed it and that’s what count. Here some small impressions of Niš.
And if you do not believe me of Niš being on the crossroads , here a traffic sign in the center of Niš:
