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
