The Church of St. Nicholas
The Church of St. Nicholas stands as a witness of turbulent history of the city. It is considered that there were many churches in this place which were demolished and rebuilt during the turbulent history. To the west of the current Church of St. Nicholas there are remnants of the foundations of the previous church, which was demolished in 1737 as a consequence of the Turkish outburst of anger provoked by the disobedience of Serbian population. Present Church of St. Nicholas was erected in 1863/4 as a Turkish mosque. Upon the liberation from the Turks, the mosque was adapted to serve the needs of Orthodox believers in 1878. An interesting fact about this church is that it has changed its religious purpose six times, from the mosque to the orthodox temple.
