Petrovaradin Fortress, Petrovaradin

(220+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
At one of the highest points of Petrovaradin fortress sits Petrovaradin Fortress, an old Baroque tower with one clock face on each of its four sides, featuring reversed hour and minute hands. Rebuilt in the 18th century, the 2 m (6.6 ft) clock helped fishermen know the approximate time from afar by seeing only the hour hand. Jokingly dubbed "the drunken clock," it reportedly runs fast during the summer months and lags behind in winter. Visit the site and check the accuracy of this local landmark for yourself. From here you'll also get unmatched views of the river and the rooftops below.

  • From the place where the clock is situated, the view is amazing over the city. The walk is like 10 minutes over the bridge, from the city center.  more »

  • Gorgeous Fortress. Great views from the top of it. A number of cafes are there as well as a good number of clubs and even a hotel. Exit Festival is held hear yearly in July.
  • Beautiful historical place, must see in Novi Sad. You can also organize visit to the underground of the fortress. There are lots of coffee places and great restaurants with balconies with a view on the Danube and the whole city. View is beautiful from here, day and night. Also, it is the place for one of the largest music festivals in Europe-Exit.
  • Amazing Fortress place just where it should be, by the river and very close to the city center. You'll have a great view of the city, some nice restaurants and cafes. There's also a city museum, planetarium and equestrian (horse) club. Every July you can enjoy the best music festival in Europe, EXIT.
  • A must see for all turists and travelers who visit Novi Sad. It offers a great view on the city panorama, nice restaurants and a lot of history
  • Nice place. The walls are so strong that you need to pass the tunnel when you driving hrough them. You can have a walk around for an hours. Must to see when you visit Novi Sad
