Beautiful fortress well preserved. The park around the fortress was built since our last visit (2014). Currently, they are renovating the interior of the fortress so that visitors can enter, which is really good because it was inaccessible in 2014 and this year. We will...More

I really enjoyed a stroll around the castle and its grounds, I was lucky enough to have good weather which made the walk very pleasant, and from the top of the castle walls you can have a fantastic view across the rest of the town.

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.

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.

Walked to the Pirot Fortress from my hotel. The moat seems to be in great shape and has a nice park on both the exterior and interior. A small section of an exterior wall is still standing with obvious evidence of defensive positions on two...More

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.
