The city had a Bulgarian, Ottoman, and finally a Serbian period. All of the stages are still visible and will put you in a time machine. The most important sights of Nis are Medijana, a Roman villa connected with Constantine's family, The Skull tower, built and decorated with human skulls by the Ottomans after an uprising against them, the fortress, and a Nazi concentration camp. Serbians are famous for their grilled meat. Skopje Skopje is the capital of Macedonia and it is perfect place to see how history is used to create identity. The town has been inhabited since prehistorical times. It was a military Roman camp but its flourishing moments were as a Bulgarian kingdom. It was a Bulgarian capital between 972-992. After that it was part of the Byzantine empire and between 1081 and 1088 was conquered by the Normans. Now Skopje has a monumental new city center which combines the old with the new.
