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.

ドナウ河の橋のたもとのレストランの駐車場に車を停めて城塞の頂上まで歩きました。 ペトロヴァラディンの旧市街は観光客も少なく、非常に落ち着いた雰囲気の良いところでした。 頂上まで上ってみると駐車場があり、普通に車で上がれるようでした。ノヴィサド市博物館の地下には城塞の深井戸等があり、なかなか刺激的でした。 more »Leave your car in the parking lot of the restaurant at the foot of the bridge on the Danube River, I walked to the top of the Citadel. And with a very relaxed atmosphere and tourist old town of Petrovaradin was. And looking up to the top seemed normal Vantage by car and parking. And wells of the citadel in the basement of the Novi Sad City Museum, was very exciting.

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
