This tour is combination of two different activities. Urban tour of Niš (Nish) enriched with history and local lifestyle, plus wondering through isolated nature of Devil’s Town. If you want just “isolated in the nature” experience in this part of Serbia, try our Balkan Mountain hike tour.
What to expect from the tour
Expect to experience completely different Serbia than the one you have seen so far. South of Serbia is anyway near to Belgrade or Novi Sad in every sense. Niš, even though is the third biggest in Serbia reflects different mentality and lifestyle. Devil’s Town as unique natural phenomenon is a great opportunity to escape to a secluded and intact part of Serbia.
#YourSerbiaHost will pick you up from you Belgrade hotel, or other place of your stay early in the morning. The road goes through Morava river valley all the way. The valley is know as the only natural passage through Balkan peninsula, and as such, the reason for many conquests in history. In present day, modern highway is running through it and we’ll use it all the way to Niš.
After two hour drive you’ll be in Niš, the administrative and economy center of South Serbia. The city has a long history, way back from Roman times. Places to visit in Niš are the Skull tower, notorious reminder of Ottoman atrocities during their reign, as well as Niš fortress and the city center with its lively and colorful “tinkers alley”.
From Niš we continue to Devil’s Town. This unique place in the world is actually a rare natural phenomenon caused by soil erosion. Number of soil figures is 202 and their height vary from 2 to 15 meters. Many legends and folk stories are related to the name and place itself. During winter and fall, when strong winds are blowing, specific roar is formed from air passing through soil figures. All of these combined together resulted with the name Devil’s Town.
Time required to explore the site can take up to two hours, depending on your pace and fitness. The walk through the site is almost consider hiking, so have have this in mind when picking wardrobe and footwear.
Part of each our tour is local food experience. It’s no different with this one. We are stopping by to nearby family owned tavern for lunch.
After enjoying abundant meal get ready for journey back to Belgrade. Napping is allowed.
