Kamenički vis - the most important information
Have you heard of Kamenicki vis, one of the peaks on the mountain Kalafat. This peak is located on the territory of the Nis city municipality of Pantelej, at an altitude of 814 meters. It is a popular picnic area, which is only 14 km away from the center of Nis. Kamenički vis is located above the village of Kamenica, after which it got its name. The original name of this visa was Stone Head. There is a spacious plateau surrounded by forest, from which you will be able to enjoy the view of Nis and its valley.
Characteristics of Kamenicki vis
On the northern side of Kamenicki Vis, a ski trail (350 m), a toboggan run and 2 smaller ski lifts have been built, which are currently not in operation. In the seventies of the 20th century, a tourist settlement "Forest Flower" was built on this place, with 21 weekend facilities (bungalows), where you can spend as many days as you want. Studeni kladenac, the only spring in the narrower area of Kamenički vis, is located on the north side. An observatory has been built here, 3 barbecues, wooden benches and tables have been set up, so this place is ideal for hanging out with family or friends in nature. If you bring your little ones, swings and other contents are set for them, which will entertain them immensely.
