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.

  • Obavezno mesto za posetu bez obzira na to koliko dugo boravite u Novom Sadu. Na žalost, nema dovoljno sadržaja da saznate informacije o tvrđavi, kako da je obiđete ili neke aktivnosti.  more »
