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...

The Clock Tower

Reviewed By 427BeatleBob - Watsonville, California

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.

Reviewed By Dave1408 - Glasgow

Lovely tall Cathedral in main square. The Hungarian style roof is lovely. I found the interior a bit plain. Very well kept

Danube Park

Reviewed By AG P

Sizeable park not far from city centre. It's ok,. But nothing notable in the grounds. Nice shaded areas, wouldn't go out of my way though.

Strand

Reviewed By lovehull

We went to the beach in the summer during the exit festival. Tips:
1. There's very little healthy food available so if you want some bring a picnic.
2. Don't buy water from bars with fridges without price displays - they will try and rip you off. The crepe stand has the cheapest one litre bottle at 60p (100 rsd)
3. Turn right and walk further down under the bridge and beyond if you want peace and quiet away from the bars with loud music.
4. Entry is 50 rsd and it helps if you have the correct money.
5. Taxi fare from the beach to city centre is about 200 - 250 rsd on average

The Synagogue

Reviewed By FactotumDellaCitta

This architecturally attractive building was built at the turn of the century, when Novi Sad had a thriving Jewish community under the Austro-Hungarian rule. Nowadays Novi Sad has a very small Jewish community, so the building is used primarily as a concert venue. It is possible to visit for a small fee, and there's a small exhibit about the history of the Synagogue and the Jewish community.

Fruska Gora

Reviewed By avdij - Rotterdam, The Netherlands

One of Serbia's national parks. This is by far the most attractive piece of nature in the Vojvodina. Great hills in the middle of the Pannonian Plane. Lots of walking trails, 15 hidden monasteries, some nice restaurants and great views. Within one hour drive from Beograd and less than 30 minutes from Novi Sad.
