It was our day out filled with lots of walks around fortress and visual feast looking down to Novi Sad and beautiful river Danube. Preparation for Exit festival was in full swing, lots of tourists visiting, and weather was absolutely gorgeous, so we enjoyed and appreciated our time spent on Petrovaradin. One of main attractions was a clock tower, which has one interesting fact. The minute and hour hand on the clock tower are reversed, with the small hand showing minutes, and the big hand showing hours. It was created as such, so that fishermen on the Danube river can see the time from a long distance. There is a lot of history attached to this grounds so if you are here familiarise yourself with it and enjoy the vista. Wear sensible footwear as there is a lot of walking involved and different levels. Before leaving, stop for a meal or a drink in lovely restaurant on fortress' grounds.

Lovely fortress on the side of the river Danube in Novi Sad. Exit festival is held there each year (mainly dance and electronic music) and the stages are spread across the site. Lovely views back across the river to the main area of Novi Sad town.

The Petrovaradin Fortress is an amazing castle next to the Danube river, and it holds the Exit festival every year. It's definitely worth seeing, but if you have back problems it might be difficult to walk because of the humidity and the pain.
Apart from this tiny detail it's perfect!

Enjoyed walking around this old fortress and admiring the views of Novi Sad, the Danube, and the old village below. Certainly a must-see while in Novi Sad.

Climbing up the old fortress gives you a magnificent view of the Danube. If you got some time, I would recommend you to sit in the restaurant near the reverse clock to enjoy a cup of coffee with such beautiful view.
