Activities:

walking sightseeing tour of the city of Novi Sad and Petrovaradin fortress

Tour description:

We meet in the old Lower Town or Suburbium of the fortress, in front of the old, 18th century building that still serves its original purpose – that of military hospital.

Walking the streets of the Lower Town we will discover many beautiful edifices with intriguing stories, most notable among them being the old Town Hall, House of the Commander of the Fortress and the baroque Church of St George.

From here we will slowly climb up the fortress, rising above the town. At its top you will be immediately struck by the stunning panoramic view of Novi Sad but also of Petrovaradin, the Danube and the lush Fruška Gora Mountain. Standing on its tall rock by the elbow of the Danube we will hear stories about its forerunners, the building of the current fortress, its master builders and old military tactics, famous visitors, underground passages and the most interesting events from its past. We will also walk by the famous Clock Tower, the Officers' Pavillion with its restaurants and the Long Barracks where the galleries of Novi Sad's painters are.  

Continuing the walk we will see the extent of the fortress and some of its bastions, trenches and gates that still make it the largest fortress on the whole of the Danube.
