Mediana is the birthplace of Emperor Constantine the Great. It is located on the road Nis-Niska Banja (Spa) and features the remains of the imperial palace with luxury villas, Roman bathrooms and sacral objects. Constantine fully legalized Christianity in the Empire with the Edict of Milan in 313 and this action is now considered to be one of the major reasons that Christianity spread as a religion.
