The village of Donje Vlase is located eight kilometers from Nis. For the first time, it was mentioned only before the liberation from the Turks, when the rulers of Đorđe and Manojl Kranalić were masters, and his inhabitants mainly dealt with cattle breeding and timber (sale) of timber. In 1878, the village had 26 households and 185 inhabitants. After the liberation from the Turks, the population is turning more to agricultural and seafaring, and from the fifties of the last century and to working labour professions.
