Petrovaradin Fortress, Petrovaradin

(4.7/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
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. Petrovaradin Fortress is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Novi Sad Edition.

  • If you get the to wall of the castle,you will see the amazing view. It's looking great and sooo silente place.If you go to Serbia ,Especially you go to Novi Sad and in here 
  • The best can be a city on a river from the "wrong side". And on the wrong side of Novi Sad Petrovaradin is located. The fortress is not simply a military object, but a small city in itself. Military plays no role even today. It is worth to go across the bridge and to make the ascent on foot. The view of Novi Sad will be getting better and more interesting. Of course, you can take a taxi. These are inexpensive, but first ask the price! The intersection of Central European, Eastern European and Turkish influenced architecture fascinated in the fortress itself, and also when the plant was built by Austria. That many building Patiina have applied, don't mind it on the contrary, it emphasises the atmosphere. Yes you should not live in the homes. The views you should focus not only on the city. The surrounding Vojvodina is also appealing.
