Petrovaradin Fortress, Petrovaradin

4.7
Sitting on a hill above the Danube River, Petrovaradin Fortress features centuries-old monuments, numerous museums and entertainment venues, and hosts internationally known festivals. Although the present-day fortress was built between 1692 and 1780, 21st-century archeological excavations show traces of Paleolithic civilizations living at the site some 20,000 years ago. Walk around the fortress to see these remains and numerous medieval structures. You can also reserve a guided tour of the underground tunnels that total 16 km (10 mi) in length. Grab a drink at one of the cafes and snap photos of the wide, open views across the river, enjoying a panoramic view of Novi Sad. You'll do a lot of walking, so wear comfortable shoes. Note that access to the fortress requires climbing a lot of steps, which might be difficult for people with mobility issues.

  • Towering high above the Danube, the Petrovaradin fortress is one of the largest in all of Europe. Almost the entire compound is accessible and there are great views across the entire city from the fortress. Please be aware that parking can be a nightmare inside the fortress on weekends, so it is advisable to park somewhere in the city and walk up.
  • Beautiful place. Great atmosphere and incredible views of them river Danube and city of Novi Sad. Food is great. Music adds to the whole ambiance. It’s a must visit place. History, tradition, beauty and so much fun.
