In the fertile farmland of the Leskovian Valley,Leskovac is a city rich in history, both pre-war and post-war. It has to offer tourists the opportunity to visit historic landmarks, cultural monuments, and Byzantine cities from the distant past.Leskovac is a city which in it's encirclement has healthy and pure nature. As such, it will prove  attractive to visitors who wish to get to know it from this aspect. There are the river and lakes to be found, as well as picknic and hunting grounds, streams and natural springs. Leskovac has much more in store, like the ruins of Justiniana Prima, a whole city ordered by Byzantine Emperor Justinian I in the 6th century, or natural settings lik the beautiful and ancient Hisar hill.

Let’s explore the best things to do in Leskovac:

 Justiniana Prima

Near the village of Prekopčelica, not far west of Leskovac, are the ruins of a city built from scratch by the Byzantine emperor Justinian I in the 6th century. Justiniana Prima’s purpose was to serve as the magnificent seat of an archbishopric that had authority over the whole of the central Balkans. It existed for barely a century though, until in 615 it was sacked by the Avars making their way along the Danube. The city has been excavated over the last 150 years and there’s much to discover: You’ll encounter baths, a sewage system, fortifications, squares paved with dressed stone, as well as a basilica with mosaics and capitals bearing Justinians monogram.

National Museum

The National Museum is based in a hall on Stojana Ljubica, but this institution is also in charge of a few other buildings and sites in the region. With more than 33,000 items in its collection, the museum has a wide scope and presents the archaeology, ethnography and art of Leskovac and the Jablanica District. Leskovac’s city hall the museum also stages an exhibition of regional costume and traditional crafts. The main hall has artefacts from Justiniana Prima and the 3,400-year-old settlement at Hisar, which we’ll come to shortly.

This church in the centre of Leskovac is a real oddity: It dates to 1803, when the city was still under Ottoman control. Back then the city’s Christians were forbidden from rebuilding the medieval church that once stood on this site, so instead they built one disguised as a house. Odžaklija has a rectangular plan, with white stone arches, and is possibly the only church in the world to possess a chimney stack. The church was abandoned in the 20th century, and the roof collapsed in 1963 before a complete restoration was made in 1992.
Šop-Đokić House
Leskovac’s tourist office is housed in this fabulous early-19th-century house, possibly the finest in the city. It is in the Balkan style, and was owned by the affluent Šop-Đokić family. Two hundred years later that same family is trying to reclaim the property, which is now under state protection. The house’s most striking detail is on the facade, where a wooden-framed gallery sits above the porch. This is covered by exaggerated eaves, which are a trademark of traditional architecture in the south of Serbia. Try to get a look at the main hall, which has a sensational carved wooden ceiling, one of only a few examples remaining.
A natural barrier to the south of Leskovac, Hisar is a hill climbing to 341 metres. You could easily walk it from the centre of the city, and battle up the serpentine trail through coniferous forest to get to the top. There are benches every now and again, and you can look down at Leskovac through the branches. At the top the panoramas are wonderful, and there’s also an archaeological site to occupy you up here. The hill was inhabited for thousands of years from Neolithic times to the early middle ages, and you can make out the enigmatic ruins of walls, houses and an early church.
Cathedral Church
Back in the centre of Leskovac, the orthodox cathedral is next door to the Odžaklija church, and was took shape during the 1920s. The church’s consecration in 1931 was attended by Alexander I of Yugoslavia.The design is Neo-Byzantine, and if you’re clued up on the region’s monuments you may detect a similarity to the UNESCO-listed Gračanica Monastery in Kosovo. This is deliberate and the church mimics that Serbian-Byzantine style in its long, slender windows and domes resting on lanterns
Memorial House of Kosta Stamenković
Also managed by the National Museum in Leskovac is the humble home of the revolutionary, communist and workers’ rights campaigner, Kosta Stamenković. A national hero in some quarters, he had always been a part of the labour movement but became increasingly engaged after he lost his left arm in a mill accident in 1926. By the 1930s Stamenković was a prominent political figure. That was until the Second World War when he lost his life fighting with the Partisans against the Chetniks who at that time were collaborating with the Axis powers. This small worker’s cottage sheds light on domestic life in the first half of the 20th century. Items owned by Kosta and his daughter Lepša remain where they left them, and there’s also memorabilia from the labour movement up to 1942.
Vlasina Lake
Serbia’s largest man-made lake is a day out to remember. This immense body of water sits at high altitude, on a plateau 1,211 metres above sea level. It was born at the start of the 1950s when an embankment dam flooded a peat bog at the confluence of the Vlasina and Vrla Rivers.There’s nothing but unblemished nature on the shores, where wild horses gallop through birch and evergreen forest . The lake water has a glassy quality, and with temperatures rising to the low-20s in summer it’s heaven to swim in. One of the lake’s more bizarre features is its floating islands, chunks of peat that are covered in vegetation and are pushed across the lake’s surface by the wind.
