1The Bedem (or Fortress) of Nikšić is one of a very few buildings standing from the Middle Ages. Built on the ruins of the Roman fortification of Anagastum, this was the centre of Onogošt, the Turkish outpost overlooking the Nikšić Plain.<<Niksic Bedem
Most na Mostanici>>The Moštanica Bridge reputedly dates from the third century AD, when the Romans governed this region. Although the bridge has been added to and strengthened, much of the original bridge remains. The River Moštanica has largely dried up by now.2
3Trebjesa hill is a large area of hilly parkland in Nikšić with mountain biking courses, open-air gyms and many walking paths. The peak of the hill affords an expansive view of the whole Nikšić plain, and there is even a motel nestling above a view over the town.<<Trebjesa
Carev most>>The Emperor's Bridge, in the Kličevo suburb of the town is a late-19th century feat of engineering, built over the River Zeta. It is named after Russia's Tsar Alexander III, who provided substantial funding for the bridge.4
5Vučje is a mountain just north-east of Nikšić, which during the winter months is a ski resort and during the summer is wonderful area to get away from the city heat, pick forest fruits and a starting point for many hikes around the region - including to Lake Kapetanovo (featured on this page).<<Vucje
Vojnik>>Vojnik (meaning 'soldier') is the highest mountain in the surroundings of Nikšić, on the border with the municipality of Šavnik, with its highest peak at 1997m asl. There are stunning views from the summit towards Bosnia to the west and Durmitor to the north.6
7Lake Krupac is a man-made dammed reservoir to the north-west of Nikšić which has been developed into a beach and watersports resort. Last year the live music festival 'Lake Fest' was held here during the summer.<<Lake Krupac
Ostrog>>The monasteries and church of Ostrog are a beautiful collection of sacral buildings about 10km south-east of Nikšić, the most famous of which is the upper monastery, nestled in an almost sheer cliff and extending back into a cave. The earthly remains of Nikšić's patron saint, St. Vasilije (Basil) of Ostrog are kept here.8
9Lake Slano - another of Nikšić's man-made lakes, and less popular with picnickers; Slano in recent years has significantly dried up during the summer months, leaving a barren, desert-like landscape, but during the wetter months provides beautiful views, especially on crisp winter mornings when mist hugs the surface of the lake.<<Lake Slano
Zurim>>Mt. Žurim - these two mountains just half an hour drive from Nikšić provide plenty of opportunity for breathtaking scenery and exercise, with some scrambling up rocks thrown in.10
