From Belgrade: Novi Sad & Sremski Karlovci Full-Day Tour

1. From Belgrade: Novi Sad & Sremski Karlovci Full-Day Tour

Departing from your accommodation, head toward the northern Serbian province of Vojvodina. For an hour, you will enjoy the colorful landscapes of the Pannonian Plain while hearing stories about the area's turbulent history. Reaching the Fruska Gora region, you will find over 16 medieval Orthodox monasteries nested in this region. Explore one on the way toward Sremski Karlovci, a quiet little Baroque town with small houses, churches, palaces, gardens, and an impressive history. Visit the Chapel of Peace, where a peace treaty was signed. Visit the main square, the Four Lion Fountain, the Karlovci Gymnasium, the town hall, the Roman Catholic Church, the Serbian Orthodox Church of St. Nicholas, and more.  You will be able to taste a famous "Bermet", a Serbian wine that even made it to Titanic. Your next stop will be the Petrovaradin Fortress, one of the largest strongholds in Europe, which is still preserved. Built by the Austrian Empire in the 17th and 18th centuries, this fortress played a significant role in defending the middle European countries from Ottoman attacks. You will be able to walk through the fortress, pass through some of its gates, and see some of the interesting places from the top, like the City Museum, the old military barracks, and the clock tower. Enjoy the view over the Danube and the city of Novi Sad. As the second largest city in Serbia, with its typical Central European appearance and proud history of being a cultural and intellectual center in the Austro-Hungarian Empire which, it earned the nickname 'Serbian Athens.' See the Museum of Vojvodina and Dunavski Park, the largest green area in the city, the beautiful neo-Romantic Serbian Orthodox Bishop’s Palace, and visit the Serbian Orthodox Cathedral of St. George from the 18th century with its invaluable iconostasis painted by famous Serbian painter Paja Jovanovic. Walk through the main street further on, enjoying the 18th and 19th-century architecture as well as endless rows of cafes and restaurants, and then reach Liberty Square - a central point in the city. Here, you will find the town hall, Roman Catholic Cathedral, Finance Palace, and the neo-classical edifice of the oldest city hotel, Vojvodina. You will then pass by the Serbian National Theater and reach the city synagogue, the beautiful Hungarian Secession-style building, one of the largest European synagogues still standing. Then, take a break for a traditional Serbian lunch (at your own expense), go shopping and enjoy Novi Sad, and, at the arranged time, get back into the vehicle and head back to Belgrade.

From Belgrade: Novi Sad and Karlovci Sremski Tour

2. From Belgrade: Novi Sad and Karlovci Sremski Tour

Depart Belgrade and travel towards the natural reserve of Fruška Gora, home to 17 active monasteries of the Serbian Orthodox Church. Learn about the region's wine industry at Sremski Karlovci town, where you will sample regional wine specialties.  Heading to the North, you'll enjoy the wide, colorful plain of the Vojvodina region. You will notice an isle which "spoils" the simple skyline and the flat morphology of the terrain. This is the Fruska Gora mountain where 17 religious gems of the Serbian Orthodox Church are hidden. We will reveal you one of them which will seduce you with its peace and legacy of the Branković family as the most important benefactor during Serbia's challenging times, the Turkish siege. After the calm beginning, you will be ready for the more dynamic part of the tour. You will be welcomed by the little, charming town of the Sremski Karlovci. The Patriarchy Palace, Saint Nikola's church, and the first Serbian gymnasium established in 1791 justify Sremski Karlovci's title "museum town". One of the best sides of Karlovci would definitely be wine production, and therefore you will have the opportunity to try a local sort of wine "Bermet" that was served on Titanic! Continue to the Petrovaradin Fortress – known as the Gibraltar on the Danube – and admire the medieval fortifications built in the 17th and 18th centuries. Built as a pillar of Austrian defense from Turkish invasion, Petrovaradin fortress was never conquered, nowadays giving us a chance to enjoy the most amazing view over Novi Sad, to feel the energy of the most prestigious European music festival "Exit", and to take a photo with the „drunk clock". Move on to Novi Sad, Serbia's second-largest city and a melting pot of cultures thanks to its rich history on the border of the former Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman empires. Stroll along the historic Dunavska and Zmaj Jovina streets in the pedestrian zone and see the elegant City Hall. Discover the house where Albert Einstein's wife lived, and get some free time for lunch in a traditional restaurant of Vojvodina. Vivid facades with specific types of windows, one cannonball in a wall as a reminder, street musicians on each corner, charming passages, and a long list of important sights worthy of attention will make you fall in love with this European capital of culture for 2021. Afterwards, you will be driven back to your accommodation in Belgrade, hopefully fully satisfied with this new experience!

3. From Belgrade: Novi Sad & Fruska gora & winery and monastery

From the Petrovaradin Fortress, which is waiting for us, proudly rising on the edge of the Danube river bank, you will have an unforgettable view of the entire Novi Sad city. Few centuries ago the fortress was the border between east and west, between two great empires, and still its underground tunnels keep many secrets …Today one of the biggest music festivals in Europe “Exit” takes place among its strong walls. Walking through the oldest streets of Novi Sad, admiring magnificent baroque, classical, neo-gothic buildings, colorful facades, you will fall in love with its grace atmosphere and its inhabitants who, even in this era of fast communications, have preserved the tranquility and natural kindness. Imagine how they persuaded the Empress Maria Theresa to sell them a city for 80000 Hungarian forints! And since then it was the cultural center of the Serbians for a long time, still called ”Serbian Athens”. As a quiet guardian of the city and whole this region, in a distant prehistory elevated as an island from the huge Panonian Sea, lies Fruska Gora Mountain, which is today the oldest national park in Serbia. While enjoying the landscapes of its beautiful slopes, we will visit Krušedol, one of the most important Orthodox monasteries on the mountain. Following the traces of the greatest migration of the Serbian people from the end of the 17th century, we’ll arrive in Sremski Karlovci. Walking around the oldest high school in Serbia, the famous fountain "4 lions", the Orthodox cathedral, with the taste of the “Kuglof” chocolate cake in your mouth, we’ll solve the riddle: What is the other Sun, which the people of this irresisteble small town claim to have? At the end of this exciting adventure, we are going to the local wine cellar where, besides various high quality wines, you will have a unique opportunity to try Bermet, a dessert, spicy wine, made only in this region. The red one was a favorite drink of Empress Maria Theresa and the legend says it was sold on Titanic as well!
