Tour description

Our tour starts from Studentski Trg, and we head toward Northern Serbian province of Vojvodina. An hour of our ride we’ll spend enjoying the colorful landscapes of the Pannonian plane trees and hear stories about the turbulent history of this area. We reach Fruška Gora, the only mountain in this region, covered with woods and filled with vineyards on the lower slopes, one of 5 National parks in Serbia but also one of the oldest and best wine regions. The thick Lyndon forests served as a perfect hiding place for 16 medieval Orthodox monasteries that have nested within it.

We visit one of the monasteries and head towards Sremski Karlovci. A quiet, Baroque town where time has stopped will impress you with its small houses, Baroque churches, and palaces, gardens and fountains, but with its impressive history as well: in 1699 a peace treaty between Christian European forces and Ottoman Empire was signed here, putting an end to Ottoman conquest of Europe. Also, the town was a religious and educational center of the Serbs for more than 250 years, making it one of the most critical places in Serbian history.

First, we will visit the Chapel of Peace, where the peace treaty was signed. Then we’ll stroll through the streets of Karlovci down to the main square where we will see the Four Lions Fountain, The Karlovci Gymnasium (High School), Town Hall, Roman Catholic Church, Serbian Orthodox Church of St. Nicholas, Patriarchy, the Serbian Orthodox Theological Seminary. We’ll taste two of the most famous products: the famous Bermet wine in one of the oldest wine cellars in the city and kuglof cakes, a touch of German tradition brought to Karlovci by German settlers in the 18th century, in a charming kuglof shop Gea.

Our next stop is Petrovaradin Fortress. One of the largest strongholds in Europe, still preserved, covers the surface of 100 ha. Built by the Austrian Empire in 17th-18th centuries, it played a significant role in defending the Middle European countries from Ottoman attacks. We’ll walk through the fortress, passing through some of its gates, and see some of the interesting places on the top of it like City Museum, old Military Barracks, and the Clock Tower and enjoy the view over the Danube and the city of Novi Sad across the river

We walk down the fortress into the lower town of Petrovaradin, an entirely preserved 18th-century town, inhabited by soldiers who defended the fort and their families. We cross the Danube in a vehicle and park on the other side so that we can continue our walking tour through Novi Sad.

It is the second largest city in Serbia, with its typical Middle European appearance and proud history of being a cultural and intellectual center of the Serbs in Austro-Hungarian Empire, for which it earned a name – Serbian Athens. We walk by the elegant building of the Museum of Vojvodina and Dunavski park, the largest green area in the city, and we enter the city center with its main pedestrian street Zmaj Jovina. We pass by the beautiful Neo-Romantic Serbian Orthodox Bishop’s Palace, and we visit the Serbian Orthodox Cathedral of St. George from the 18th century with its valuable iconostasis painted by famous Serbian painter Paja Jovanovic. We walk through the main street further on, enjoying the 18th and 19th-century architecture as well as endless rows of cafes and restaurants and we reach the Liberty Square, a central point in the city. Here we find The Neo-Renaissance Town Hall, Neo-Gothic Roman Catholic Cathedral, Finance Palace, and the Neo-Classical edifice of oldest city hotel Vojvodina. We then pass by the Serbian National Theater and reach the city Synagogue, a beautiful Hungarian Secession-style building, one of the largest European synagogues to be preserved.

Then we make a break and free time for lunch, shopping and enjoying Novi Sad and, at the arranged time, we get back into the vehicle and head back to Belgrade.
