Petrovaradin Fortress - the Best Spot in Novi Sad to Watch the Sunset 

Located at one of the highest spots in the city, overlooking the Danube and the rest of the place, stands the Petrovaradin Fortress, one of the oldest fortresses in Europe. The first fortress was built by the Celts in the 4th century BC, and all further conquerors left traces on the fortress - Romans, Hungarians, Ottoman Turks, and Habsburgs, who gave the fortress the final look in the 17th century. 

Underground military galleries, the Clock Tower - the symbol of this place, and one of the best viewpoints in the city overlooking the Danube river make the Petrovaradin Fortress the greatest tourist attraction of the Capital of the North to discover.
