I've been in outdoor part of the restaurant that is summer garden wrapped with the plastic foil. Since This part was still opened in November, I've set here even though it was rainy and windy, since they were serving food there an a lot of people was already eating there.

The best place in town with a view on Novi Sad. Petrovaradin Fortress is the symbol of Novi Sad. The place where every year the famous music festival Exit. In the fortress there is a good hotel Leopold and restaurants with good food, museum and planetarium. The fortress was built in the late 17th century

This is a great place for a stroll. The views are amazing and the shopping district is very close. This is a good place to people watch also.

i've been to fortresses before, but the view from this one with the Danube and the city below is definitely one of the best, the other side would give you a nice view of the hill

The only way to visit the tunnels is to join a guided tour. It is well worth it: the construction is fascinating, you will learn something about the history of the place and the way the defences were designed to work. The defences were never put to the test, and over coffee after your tour you can speculate whether this... More
