Petrovaradin Fortress, Petrovaradin

(650+ reviews on the web)
Tourist Spot
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.

  • 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.
  • I really love this castle, and the way that reaches to it. It really gives you the felling of an medieval old town somehow. Also the view from the top is amazing. Watching the sunset from there is a must of Novi Sad.
  • Beautiful view on Danube and Novi sad. Great historical place. Love it. Must see
  • Very beautiful place. I love it. Great view.
