Full description
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 turbulent history of the area. 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, town hall, Roman Catholic Church, the Serbian Orthodox Church of St. Nicholas and more.  You will be able to taste two of the most famous products from the local regions, a famous Bermet wine and Kuglof cake, a touch of German tradition brought to Karlovci by German settlers in the 18th century. Your next stop will be the Petrovaradin Fortress, one of the largest strongholds in Europe 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, passing through some of its gates and see some of the interesting places from the top like 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 for 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 the 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), shopping and enjoying Novi Sad and, at the arranged time, get back into the vehicle and head back to Belgrade.

I traveled to Serbia during COVID, so my experience is going to be a little different than most peoples probably will be. Booking the appointment was super easy and the guide was super friendly and very knowledgeable. I had spent a decent amount of time in Belgrade so it was nice to get out and see other areas. One of the stops would have been to a winery, but they were unfortunately closed. If Serbia imposes dining or store restrictions again, I would probably pick a different tour.

Alexandar picked me up on time and we proceeded to drive towards Novi Sad. the landscape is beautiful once you leave the Belgrade area. Alexandar is very knowledgeable about the area and provided detail information as we drove along the road to the Fruska Gora region. A stop at the Krusedol monastery was quite interesting and it is fascinating to learn about the role of monasteries in this region. We proceeded to Sremski Karlovci which is a beautiful town with a quant square and restaurants and shops. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we very unfortunately not allowed to taste the famous Bermet wine at the included stop to a winery in the town. There is plenty to see in this little town like the Chapel of Peace where a peace treaty was signed as well as various churches. Everything was very well covered and explained by the guide. We continued towards Novi Sad and made a stop at Petrovaradin fortress which has a fascinating history. The last stop is Novi Sad which is a beautiful city.
