The Clock Tower, Petrovaradin

4.4
#3 of 18 in Sightseeing in Novi Sad
Landmark Tourist Spot
At one of the highest points of Petrovaradin fortress sits The Clock Tower, an old Baroque tower with one clock face on each of its four sides, featuring reversed hour and minute hands. Rebuilt in the 18th century, the 2 m (6.6 ft) clock helped fishermen know the approximate time from afar by seeing only the hour hand. Jokingly dubbed "the drunken clock," it reportedly runs fast during the summer months and lags behind in winter. Visit the site and check the accuracy of this local landmark for yourself. From here you'll also get unmatched views of the river and the rooftops below.

  • From the place where the clock is situated, the view is amazing over the city. The walk is like 10 minutes over the bridge, from the city center.  more »
  • The building is beautiful. She needs a renovation. Too many street vendors around, so it is hardly possible to avoid the photographs.  more »
