Get to know the largest individual pond in Serbia famous for its rich ecosystem by cycling through it!
We start the tour at 7:00 or 14:00 at the address from which you want our guides to pick you up. After that, we are moving to Carska bara. Carska Bara, meaning the Imperial Pond, is the largest individual pond in Serbia. It is located in Banat, some 70km north of Belgrade, just south of city of Zrenjanin. Legend says notorious Atilla the Hun was buried in the pond with great treasure, and pond’s name reflect that. Another story says the name “Imperial” came from the fact the pond used to be a hunting ground for Austro-Hungarian emperors.
With its extremely rich ecosystem and special biodiversity, with some 240 bird species, biking in this authentic “mosaic” network of ponds, rivers, channels, wetlands, steppe and forest ecosystems, represents an exceptional experience. Entire system consists of three smaller, connected ponds (Carska, Perleska and Tiganjica) and our tour will take you to all of them. The ground is flat, so the tour is attractive even for beginner bikers.
Please note in order not to disturb birds the pond authorities do not allow bike riding directly by the Pond, so we will go around it and next to it, enjoying the spectacular biodiversity of the area. You can always park your bike at the entrance, and take a walk inside the park, on the marked pathways, or take a boat ride. There are also a couple of very nice restaurants in the vicinity for taking a brake. Our tour will also take you to the nearby Castle Ečka, built in the 1820. The end of the tour is scheduled for 12pm if it is a morning tour or 7pm when it comes to the afternoon tour, at the address from which we started.
