Oplenac

Reviewed By Radishich - Toronto, Canada

The Church-mausoleum dedicated to St. George, built by King Peter Karađorđević (started in 1910, completed by 1930), where members of the Karađorđević house have been buried ever since. The founder of the dynasty, Kara-George Petrović place of rest is on the south side of the church, while King Peter remains are on the north side. In the crypt below are buried most of the members of the dynasty, including Knez Alexander, King Alexander, King Peter II, Knez Tomislav, Knez Andrei, etc.
The church is built in the byzantine style, but subtle 20th century styles are noticed too. The walls are decorated in lavish mosaic, and the grand chandelier is made from melt guns of the Serbian army used in the Balkan Wars and WWI.
An impressive memorial and church atop Topola. Across from it is King Peter's modest summer house where he spent his time observing the building of the church, nowadays serving as a little museum of portraits and artifacts owned and used by the Karađorđević family while they lived in Serbia and Yugoslavia.

Sirogojno

An open-air museum "Staro selo" (the Old Village) in Sirogojno portrays the traditional village architecture of the Zlatibor region. All facilities and household objects are authentic. In the museum workshops copies of museum exhibits are manufactured and also, the skill of potters, carpenters and other artisans is manifested.

Entry ticket will cost you 150 sd per person. You can walk by yourself and start with two tiprs of houses and households which ate originally purchased from owners and placed in etno Sirogojno. Staff are friendly and will explain you everyting. Just ask them. Planty to see and purchase suveniets or have some local juice from blueberries or strawberries or something else. If you asre into history you can easily spent overr 2 hours here. It's worth visiting.

Zemunski Kej is located in municipality of Zemun.
It is the main Zemun's landing area for numerous boats.
If you want to spent time with family and friends, looking at the Danube river and breathing fresh air, this is a place for you.
Also it is great place if you have kids.

Petrovaradin Fortress

Reviewed By Larry A - Jackson, California, United States

I've been here before but brought my friend here to show him this neat, historic fortress overlooking the Dunav and Novi Sad. We wandered by the artists studios and took a look in a couple (it's sort of an artists' colony today). Also nearby is the city museum, a couple of restaurants and best of all, the view of Novi Sad, Dunav and the down below...

Sremski Karlovci

Reviewed By Ann C - Thornton Cleveleys, United Kingdom

Walking along the small streets of this town was like taking a step back in time. There are some lovely old buildings and plenty of examples of the 'spying' windows - sort of box-like arrangements overlooking the streets in some of the houses - which enabled the locals to observe the comings and goings below without being seen themselves (seems to have been a common practice in Serbia and not just during the Communist regime. Well worth taking a stroll round before going on to visit the Kis winery to round off the trip.

Nature Park Mokra Gora

Reviewed By Linda K - Riga, Latvia

Train ride costs ~5 EUR and it takes 2h15 min, therefore real bargain! However it is not very interesting as there are many tunnels and trees. Please also be aware that road from Serbia side was closed in August 2017 as one bridge was under construction. So you either have to use parallel road under the bridge (very unsafe and narrow, use only if you are driving a jeep) or you have to use other way (+50 km). We did not have time, so were not able to go around but used road under the bridge. We saw 3 broken cars after the road... While we were on that road one bus was coming towards us. Good luck that bus go back and gave us road otherwise we would probably fall from the cliff... Better plan your time accordingly and use alternative route!

The Clock Tower

Looking at the clock is fine but you need to walk around to look at other things. You have to enter the fortress to get in. You have a grand view of the Danube and Novi Sad.
