ancient Naissus, town position, exploration, travellers, ancient remains
In this paper the author presents, in brief, both ancient past of Naissus and ancient remains of this significant city in the 16th and 17th centuries. A great number of travellers passing through this city described it in their writings. Many of them travelling as western envoys towards Constantinople noticed and described our people, customs, national costumes, but also the remains from the antiquity to the Turkish sultan. These records had great significance for later research of our scientists.
