Quite a fortress!

Incredible architectural achievement by the Austrians. Worth a visit at night. Watch for bats. Go with a guide in the tunnels at night to avoid getting lost!

Splending view overlooking the river and the city! Must visit when you are visiting Novi Sad! Perfect to enjoy some coffee in warmer days, but be prepared for a bad service and long waiting

Amazing views of Novi Sad are provided by this place, but it can get very cold and breezy on top during the winter. On the plus side, ample parking space in those cold conditions.

This is one of the reasons you should come to Novi Sad and not just because EXIT music festival takes place here in July each year. There is a hotel, little art galleries, long walkways, lovely restaurants here. The climb is also a pretty sight. Takes you near to the clock tower. The fortress is beautifully lit up at night...
