The Petrovaradin Fortress | Serbia

Our first day around Novi Sad included a lot of walking around town, but in today’s post I will only focus on one sight: the Petrovaradin fortress.

More like a citadel for all of its walls, ramparts and sheer size, the fortress was pretty impenetrable and was at times dubbed “the Gibraltar of the Danube”. The fortress is now a large tourist attraction, overflowing with artist galleries and a few restaurants. It is also where the famous Exit (music) Festival takes place each year.

The fortress is on the other side of the Danube river from the pedestrian zone, but makes for an easy stroll. We stayed clear of the kitsch aspect, and tried to focus more of sweeping views and the feel of the old town within some of the walls.
