Pogled na trg sa cvecem, zelenim drvecem i novi most na reci Nisavi, ispred ulaza u tvrdjavu.
Nis je najveci grad u jugoistocnoj Srbiji i sediste Nisavskog upravnog okruga.
Nalazi se 237 kilometara jugoistocno od Beograda na reci Nisavi, nedaleko od njenog usca u Juznu Moravu.
Nis je bio administrativni, vojni i trgovinski centar razlicitih drzava i carstava kojima je, tokom svoje duge istorije, pripadao. Na prostoru danasnjeg Nisa, u antickom gradu Naisu rodjeni su rimski carevi Konstantin Veliki i Konstancije III. Geografski polozaj Nisa ucinio ga je strateski vaznim i time primamljivim gradom za mnoge osvajace. Tokom istorije, teritorijom na kojoj se danasnji grad nalazi prosli su Dardanci, Tracani, Iliri, Kelti, Rimljani, Huni, Avari, a zatim i Vizantinci, Srbi, Bugari i Osmanlije. U vise navrata grad su zauzimali Madjari i Austrijanci. Od Turaka je oslobodjen 1878. godine i od tada se ponovo nalazi u sastavu Srbije, s kratkim prekidima u toku Prvog i Drugog svetskog rata, kada je bio pod okupacijom. Uticaj razlicitih naroda koji su ziveli na teritoriji danasnjeg grada Nisa primecuje se u kulturnom nasledju grada, pre svega u njegovoj arhitektonskoj raznovrsnosti.
Saobracajna infrastruktura na teritoriji Nisa ga cini raskrsnicom kopnenog i vazdusnog saobracaja Balkana, (pogotovo zbog intenzivnog saobracaja ka Turskoj i Grckoj) i zbog toga sto se na teritoriji Nisa nalazi medjunarodni aerodrom Konstantin Veliki, koji nosi medjunarodnu oznaku INI. Vazan je privredni, univerzitetski, kulturni, verski i politicki centar Srbije.
Grad je sediste Niske eparhije Srpske Pravoslavne Crkve.




17.8.2022. at Nis.

A view of the square with flowers green trees and the new bridge on the river Nisava, in front of the entrance to the fortress.
Nis is the largest city in southeastern Serbia and the seat of the Nisava administrative district.
It is located 237 kilometers southeast of Belgrade on the river Niava, not far from its confluence with South Morava.
Nis was the administrative, military and trade center of various states and empires to which it belonged during its long history. Roman emperors Constantine the Great and Constantius III were born in the area of ​​today's Ni, in the ancient city of Nais. The geographical position of Ni made it a strategically important and thus an attractive city for many invaders. In the course of history, the Dardanians, Thracians, Illyrians, Celts, Romans, Huns, Avars, and then the Byzantines, Serbs, Bulgarians and Ottomans passed through the territory where today's city is located. On several occasions, the city was occupied by Hungarians and Austrians. It was liberated from the Turks in 1878 and since then it has been part of Serbia again, with short interruptions during the First and Second World Wars, when it was under occupation. The influence of different peoples who lived on the territory of today's city of Nis can be seen in the city's cultural heritage, primarily in its architectural diversity.
The traffic infrastructure on the territory of Nis makes it a crossroads of land and air traffic in the Balkans, (especially due to the intensive traffic to Turkey and Greece) and because the international airport Constantine the Great, which bears the international designation INI, is located on the territory of Nis. It is an important economic, university, cultural, religious and political center of Serbia.
The city is the seat of the Nis eparchy of the Serbian Orthodox Church.
