It is rich in ancient monuments which testify about the stormy history of this city. Among many monuments there is a unique monument in the world, Ćele Kula (Tower of Sculls), built by Turks in 1809, with the sculls of Serbian rebels killed in the battle. Also, in the centre of Niš there is the Fortress from the Turkish time, which is a symbol of the city. The memorial complex on Bubanj Hill, camp "Crveni krst" (Red cross) and many other monuments from the near past are important cultural-historical monuments of Niš, too.
