Treasures of Vojvodina – private tour
Written By Admin
We will cross the river Sava and travel northwards to the NATIONAL PARK OF FRUSKA GORA and there we will visit the NOVO HOPOVO MONASTERY and its 16th century church considered to be the largest one in this area. Then we will visit the KRUSEDOL MONASTERY considered as one of the most important cultural centres of Serbians in the 18th and 19th centuries. The Church of the Annunciation decorated with fresco paintings from the 16th and 17th centuries is the place where the first king of Modern Serbia, King Milan was buried.
Later we will stroll through the baroque town of SREMSKI KARLOVCI, the spiritual, political and cultural centre of Serbs during the Habsburg Monarchy. Four Lions Square is surrounded by 18th and 19th century baroque buildings. The Orthodox Seminary is the second oldest Orthodox seminary in the world. This charming town is a centre of wine production including the famous Bermet dessert wine, which was found on the Titanics wine list. During the Habsburg Empire Sremski Karlovci used this wine as a bribe to soften Austrian authorities.
After tasting wine we will head to NOVI SAD for a walking tour of the old part of the town with its narrow side streets lined with historical buildings and enjoy the slow pace and relaxed atmosphere. The city centre abounds with buildings of different architectural periods, including gothic, baroque, secession and neoclassical. After lunch we will cross one of the bridges over the Danube to visit the PETROVARADIN FORTRESS, built by Austrians during 99 years as a military fort to reinforce their defence against the Ottomans. The four-story structure, which has been called the Gibraltar on the Danube, features 16 km of underground galleries, 12,000 gun holes and 13 gates. At the end we will descend to WASSERSTADT, the administrative center of the fortress for a walk.
