Beautiful zoo. Belgrade's zoo is like dump compered to Palic's zoo. Animals are in spacious cages. It is maintenance and clean. It could be more boards with inscription of animals and water in Fountains and seal pool must bee clear, not green, but that is the problem in whole Palic environment. If you have any chance to visit, do not miss.

Synagogue

Reviewed By amadzon - Tirgu Mures, Romania

You instantly fall in love with this splendid Hungarian Art Nouveau Synagogue. It is one of the finest surviving pieces of religious architecture in the Art Nouveau style. The Synagogue is huge and beautifully decorated with colourful motifs; the painted glass windows are genuinely breathtaking. The whole building is in desperate need of refurbishing.

Winery Zvonko Bogdan, Subotica

Reviewed By Vel K - Belgrade, Serbia

Went to winery Zvonko Bogdan with friends with group of friends and was really positively surprised. It all started with big entrance to wine yard and drive through lines of grapes to main building which was amazing from outside and as it is inside. Beautiful place it is. And thats what is all about. You will enjoy interior, winery process walk through and beautifully decorated tasting room. Very interesting and very eye catching. Wine it self is matter of taste, personally tried better and tried worst but at the end of the day this review is not about the wine but the overall experience which was great (some improvements could be made on welcoming customers side). Recommended stop definitely.
Tip: Reserve. Email works so as telephone. Tours starts every 1 hour.

It's easy to forget how different orthodox churches are to western ones - this is a great place to remind yourself !
There isn't any entrance fee, and there aren't any signs in english - but still worth a quick visit to see the beautiful colours and iconography.

Two for one - you get to look around the stunning Raichle palace, and you get to see whatever Exhibitions they have on display.
When I visited there was an interesting/amusing photography exhibition downstairs, and an art exhibition upstairs.
Well worth the 100 dinar entrance fee.

Buvljak Flea Market

Reviewed By Vazerol - Bern, Switzerland

The market is open every day from 6 am to 3 pm. Situated 2 kilometers outside Subotica. One of the largest flea markets in Europe. Featuring clothes, footwear, electronics, household apparatus, fruit and vegetables and snack bars. Reminds me of the market in Istanbul with covered and open markets. A major attraction for tourists, especially from nearby Hungary.
