Tour description:

After an hour-long drive through the apparently endless plains, mildly rolling hills, corn, and wheat fields, we arrive at our first stop - the famous Serbian Orthodox monastery of Krušedol.

Established in the early 16th century by the last dynasty of medieval Serbia, the Brankovićs, for centuries it served as a burial church for the most prominent Serbs of the Habsburg Empire - patriarchs, dukes, and even an exiled king. Inside the monastery church, you'll be able to see a stunning late medieval iconostasis and several layers of frescoes.

After just a few minutes of car-drive, we arrive in Sremski Karlovci, a historic city well-known for its baroque churches and excellent wine. Today quiet and provincial, the town had been an unofficial capital of the Serbian people in the Habsburg Empire for centuries, and as a result, the town center today boasts with several nice palaces and churches, including the grand Orthodox Cathedral.

After sightseeing, we continue to a local wine cellar where you'll be able to taste the finest local wines amongst them the famous Bermet, the much-cherished specialty of Sremski Karlovci, which spread its fame to Vienna and beyond.

Not far away is a totally different historic monument – the Petrovaradin Fortress. The cliffs of a steep hill above the Danube had been fortified by the Habsburgs in order to make it their strongest point of defense towards the Turks. The final result was this mighty fortification on the Danube with dozens of bastions, trenches, and gates, today fully enjoyed both by locals and foreign visitors. This citadel is also known for its stunning views over the whole of the city of Novi Sad, but also for Exit Fest, one of the best music festivals in Europe, if not in the World.

On the other side of the river spreads Novi Sad, the capital of Vojvodina. Though not as old as its neighbors, the city boasts a lovely 19th-century center teeming with stylishly dressed youth, many churches of its ethnically diverse population and museums and galleries packed with history and art, from Roman helmets to modernist paintings.

After free time for lunch in the city center, you'll have enough time to explore Novi Sad on your own.

Full of impressions, we head back to Belgrade where we will arrive in the late afternoon.
