Photographer's Note

At the Nišava riverbank, on the remains of one Roman military camp, then Roman town called Naissus, and finally on the remains of Byzantium and medieval destroyed fortification, the Turks built strong fortress at the beginning of 18th century. The building of this fortress lasted from 1719 to 1723. It was built with local people tedious labor, Istanbul stonecutters and bricklayers. Beside those well saved walls and gates, numerous objects from various periods, such as armoury, Turkish steam bath, Turkish post station, Bali- mosque, powder place and prison were also saved within this Fortress.
