“Commanding views, history and a rock fest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

This Fortress overlooks the Danube river, and across its waters the lovely town of Novi Sad. You can spend as much as a day, or as little as a few hours here. There are shops, restaurants, artist ateliers and all done pretty tastefully. The restaurants and cafes have outdoor seating which include the fantastic views across the river. In July they hold what is called by some the best rock fest in Europe.

“A Nice Walk in Tranquility”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

I visited Novi Sad as a one-day excursion from Belgrade. I got there by bus after less than 1.5 hr 655 Din, returned to Belgrade by train more than 1.5 hr at 390 Din.

I strolled in the city and this fortress area. It's a nice view from the fortress overlooking Danube river. Do bring a jacket as it's quite windy up there. Novi Sad is not touristy and I enjoy the tranquil atmosphere. After visiting other crowded cities in my Balkans trip such as Dubrovnik, Mostar, Belgrade etc, I finally had a day of silence and peace.
