City of Niš is the third largest city in Republic of Serbia (former Yugoslavia) and it is one of the oldest cities in the Balkans and Europe. It is one of the oldest cities in Balkans and Europe.
Situated at the crossroads of the Balkan and European roads, connecting Asia Minor to Europe, since ancient times Nis was considered a gateway to the heart of Balkans. The town was named after the Nišava River, which was named Navissos by the Celtic inhabitants of the town. Each new conqueror gave the town a new name: Roman Naissus, Byzantine Nysos, Slovene Niš, or German Nissa. Roman Emperor Constantine the Great (306-337) was born born in Naissus in 274, richly endowed his birthplace. He built majestic edifices here, and made Niš an important economic, military and administrative centre. It was named Navissos by the Scordisci in 279 BC, after an invasion of the Balkans. The city was among several taken in the Roman conquest in 75 BC. The Romans built the Via Militaris in the 1st century, with Naissus being one of its key towns; it is also the birthplace of Constantine the Great, the first Christian Emperor and the founder of Constantinople, and Constantius III and Justin I. It is home to one of the oldest churches in Serbia, dating to the 4th century, located in the suburb of Mediana.
