Petrovaradin Fortress, Petrovaradin

4.8
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.

  • Historically, beautiful place, music festival EXIT, restaurants, catacombs, old Town, Belgrade Gate.  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.
