The centre of the fortress includes a museum... worth to be visited to have an impression of life in Novi Sad in previous centuries. Do not forget to ask for a visit of the underground world of the fortress... the secret of fortresses

I'm not sure wether it is more beautiful during the day or during the night. You can enjoy a stroll or a coffee there, a beautiful view or you can go to Exit festival and see how it can serve as amazing concert place. My...More

I give 3 stars because they had one bathroom and it was closed! Other than that the view was very nice and it's a nice spot.

They are really not much to offer, except some nice restaurants, and a good view of the city at high elevation. If you have the extra time, not a bad place to visit as it is not far from city center.

Petrovaradin Fortress is on a gorgeous location, the views from the yard are breathtaking! The museum and the information it offers is vast and the personnel is very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended if you ever decide to visit Novi Sad.

It is an Austro-Hungarian 18th century fortress, with a lot of interesting contents and excellent viewpoints. There are coffee bars, artist ateliers, horse-riding schools, a hotel. And also, don't forget the Exit open-space music festival which is organised every year in July.

If you are coming to Novi Sad it's impossible not to see the fortress. Amazing place for walking, having a drink, watching the sunset or visiting great Exit festival in July!

There are no entry fees. You could drive in by car and use public parking without paying (I were there on April 2015, parking was free) or you could go by bus or by foot cross the bridge and upstairs to the clock tower :)

Visiting Petrovaradin Fortress during the Exit Festival (2 Replies)
Hi All, We'll be in Serbia during the Exit Festival, and we are considering a day trip from Belgrade to Novi Sad. It is possible to see the Petrovaradin Fortress as a regular tourist at this time without buying tickets for the music festival? Thanks, M

Will be visiting Novi Sad on Nov. 3. Stopping with the river cruise ship. Is there an entry fee to fortress? If so, how much and do they take credit cards? Is there public transportation from the ship dock to the fortress? If not, how far is it from the dock to walk? Thanks
