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.

  • You can get amazing photos from this fortress. And here there is a restaurant where you can get the BEST creme pita I've ever had in my life. If I get the opportunity to go back to Serbia, it will be for the creme pita and these views!
  • Novisad is an interesting city with many sights to visit. Even on January 1, there were many tourists. The Danube is well developed and is crossed by some spectacular bridges. The roads are wide and well marked and easy to reach the sights. The view over the city is spectacular in the castle. An interesting and pleasant choice, even for a January day.
