Lunch

The portions were huge, not very cheap and extremely good. The service was great. It was a chilly Sunday, we started just after noon and finished in the evening.

This is a fabulous fortress with amazing views at the river and Novi sad city especially at sunset and night. You can have a nice walk around the fortress and enjoy eating in its restaurant. If you're coming with a car there's a tunnel to reach & free parking, for walking it's not exhausting for average performance people.

I went here after going to Belgrade fortress and they are very similar. I would say this fortress is better for the views and learning about Austrian history but less historical and romantic than the Belgrade fortress.

If you are visiting Novi Sad, my recomend is to visit Petrovaradin Fortress, too. Delightful view of the whole city and the Fruska gora mountain. You can just sit on the bench and enjoy in the sun, or go for a walk through historical corridors. Also can visit Astronomy classroom or have a meal or a coffee in restorants. Depends... More

Fortress is well protected. From riverside, you can enjoy amazing sunset with city view. Walk around the fortress and discover the surrounding area.

It's a nice walk from the city to the fortress, you'll get the best view over Novi Sad and the Danube from the walls. There is a nice terrace on the top where you may have a meal or coffee.
