This is the second largest and best preserved Baroque fortress in the whole of Europe. See it when the exit festival is finished. Hire a guide through the Novi Sad tourist agency. This place has more history than you can imagine and it is very affordable. Can easily be combined with monasteries of Fruska Gora and Sremski Karlovci, as well... More

This is really nice old fortress with a beautiful view over Novi Sad and the river Danube. It is nice park area in the same time, and very good for a walk. If you like music and festivals do not miss the largest European festival EXIT. It is just amazing, especially in connection with the fortress.

The lovely folks who each have little artisan spots will show you their works and share with you their stories. Each one is different, each one unique. We spent an afternoon walking among them. They are special and made part of my trip to Novi Sad unforgettable.

This fortress is pretty large, very historic, great views of the fortress from within as well as great views of the Danube, old Novi Sad on the same side of the river and the less old Novi Sad on the other side. There are neat artists that sell hand-made crafts, have galleries, and there are also two places to grab... More

I v been visiting festivals for almost 20 years and I can sugest EXIT to everyone as a maximum of music for the minimum of cost. There is a lot of festivals in Europe, but no one other is on fortress like EXIT is. Huge and magical place. If you come once you will come again for sure.. And this... More

Well preserved Roman / Medieval fortress. Very pleasant walk on and between the walls. Breathtaking view of Danube and of Novi-Sad old town and new town. The best place to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea, a glass of beer or wine - depending on the time of day. Along with the pedestrian zone in the center of the... More

Great piece of Serbian Culture, wonderful domestic food and with great view over the danube river. Also every summer a meeting point for people from all over the world for the famous exit festival. Dozends of bands and dj`s who entertain the close to a million visitors every year. A must when in Novi Sad, Serbias most beautiful town...
