You do not realise, from a viewpoint on the extreme western edge of Europe, the importance of the Austro-Hungarian and the Ottoman Empires. When you are in Petrovaradin you realise that both were significant and that they engaged in some mighty struggles for dominance in the Balkans. Its a mighty place, controlling the Danube, the great highway of Central Europe.... More

Best seen from across the river to appreciate the commanding, defensive positioning this fortress is what one would expect in a well-crafted tale from the best author-but it's real! From the Drunken Clock (hands reversed to benefit passing ships) to the wells beneath the fort and the amazing views of the river this is a must-see attraction. My tour guide... More

We visited the fortress in the evening amd the views were absolutely gorgeous as the sun set over the city. We only spent one day in Novi Sad, but the fortress made the city a memorable one. Really worth the walk.

I didn't expect Novi Sad to have such stunning views but I was wrong. The fortress and the clock tower offer you Panoramic views across the city and on a clear day, they are breath taking. It's only a short walk over the bridge from the city centre to reach your destination. And the walk up is not too steep... More

Other than the old town of the city, this place is the only main attractions tourists can go, but it has a very nice view. There is also a place that you can have a bier and enjoy the view.

This place is well known because of the yearly Exit festival. But it is always worth a visit, it has great historical value and beautiful views over the Danube and Novi Sad. There are some restaurants with good quality.

A nice little walk across the Danube, and a short hike through the fortress walls, and you get to experience the panoramic views of the start of Vojvodina. Lovely

Petrovaradin Fortress is a fortress in the town of Petrovaradin, itself part of the City of Novi Sad, Serbia. It is located on the right bank of the Danube river. The Clock Tower is a distinctive symbol of the Petrovaradin Fortress and Novi Sad.
