1. [PARKING and MEETING]
1.1 If you`re coming by car you can park the car in the foothil of the fortress in front of the restaurant Trag Rode i Mačka. However, if you’re coming up to the fortress you can find a space for your car in front of the museum of Novi Sad.
1.2 Meeting is at the agreed location 10 minutes before the agreed time of the tour start. The tour is going to be (can be) held regardless the weather, snow, rain, sun…
2. [TIME MENAGEMENT]
The tour lasts from 2 to 3 hours, but of course it can be shorter. The tour can be arranged in the morning, during day and during night
3.1. Beside the comfortable shoes and casual clothing (we are not going to the disco) it is recommended to dress up in levels of clothes (t-shirt short and long), because the temperature in the tunnels is usuallz in the range of 12 to 15 °C. During the summer it is fresh down there and the temperature varies around 16 °C while in the winter 12 to 15 °C is commonly expected, but sometimes it can be even 21 °C regardless of the minus temperatures outside.
3.2 It is recommended to wear a huddie and to tie your hair. Hats and baseball hats are not recommended to wear in the tunnels because they obstruct your perception of the space around you and consequently you can hit your head to the top of the tunnel.
4. [LIGHTS, CAMERA, VIDEO]
4.1 - It is good to have a mobile phone with you, for making photos and as a source of light (torch). Down there, mobile operators signal is out of range so the mobile phones are useless for the calls.
4.2 - If you have a hand light bring it with you, you can buy them reallz cheap for few EURos. However, the light source from the mobile phones are quite well for the experience.
5. [FOOD and DRINKS]
- bring a sandwich if you want, some sweets are always welcomed and bring a bottle of water with yourself
5.1 – you are attending the tour on your own responsibility!
5.2 – we are going to a place with a total darkness, in there you can just at some places see the daylight through the embrasures, ventilations and casemates
5.3 – if you`re claustrophobic or you are prone to panic and you hardly deal with fear, please don`t hesitate and don`t go with us to this adventure - creative workshop
5.4 – if someone during the tour becomes frightened and wants to go out, we can get you out in two or three minutes from any stage of the tour
5.5 – during the tour it is important to move cautiously and easily . Listen to all of your senses, especially where the tour guide (JFM) calls for attention
5.6 – It is VERY important, that when you pass through some tricky part of the tunnel (a part with holes, low tunnels, bumps, mud, water, bats) to pass the message to the other consumers of the tour. This is important for avoiding accidents and injuries.
5.7 – taller people have to take special care, pay attention and be cautious in the downhills to avoid head hitting and serious injuries.
5.8 – beside bricks, dust, mud and water at some rare locations you can see some cans, plastic bottles and trash which are inevitably part of our stern reality, and unfortunately we still didn`t managed to pick it up (after more than 100 tons that we cleaned there)
5.9 – a lot of tunnels are covered with grafitties of treasure hunters and curious guys.
