The ruins of the fort were nicely restored with European money, unfortunately, during my visit, it was locked. Along the fort, there is a beautiful park that offers a nice cold shade on hot summer days.

Bulgarian by it's origin, this fortress was used until the WWII and it's well preserved. Nice pedestrian paths around the fortress.

It is looking as a place you want to explore. Nice park and small river but you can't go into the fortress itself. You could see the city from the walls and it is nice but guided tour would be a good for the visitors.

Beautiful well preserved fortress, but there is a lot more that can be done. It's a quiet and nice place, but that's all. You can go for a walk and to enjoy the view from the top of the wall, but can't get inside the...More

Rather small fortress on the outskirts of the city, but easily in walking range from any city point, due to the fact that Pirot is quite a small place. Nicely preserved, worth checking out.

The fortress was closed when we visited Pirot in early October. It may have been the off season but it did look like it was closed for some time already.

If you are planing to visit Pirot, it is nice to see this fortress. Nice fortress which was an old town during middle ages, now, it is attraction. Stone walls and water diches represents true medieval defense and gives you interesting view of medieval life.

Really nice place, but they still have a lot of work for rebuilding the fortress and making it possible for visiting inside.
