At least two reasons why a weekend trip to Novi Sad is a good idea…

A city by the Danube

In the heat of summer, many will find a pleasant shade on one of the Danube beaches. Every local has their favorite place along the Danube. For many, this is the famous Novi Sad beach – Štrand, which in the summer is a true festival of many activities and events, including those related to folklore and gastronomy. For others, these are hidden places along the Bačka and Srem coast, such as the informal beaches on Rajski Otok near Sremski Karlovac or those at Begečka Cave. There is also Officer, then Cat’s Bank and Love Island, which are only accessible at low water and if you have a boat.

Irish Wreath or Irish Wreath

Iriški venac is the most famous road crossing and intersection on Fruška Gora. The highest pass in Vojvodina, where Partizanska cesta and the Ruma-Novi Sad main road cross, connects Novi Sad, about 20 kilometers away, with the southern parts of the country (Srem, Mačva). The sea of ​​green areas on Venec offers many pleasures for lovers of hiking and greenery in all directions. Regardless of whether you decide to walk along the road towards Zmajevac and Vrdnik, perhaps in the opposite direction towards the TV tower or just to the Freedom Monument and the Information Center of the NP Fruška Gora, the forest will be beneficial and healing everywhere.
