Novi Sad is less than a two-hour drive from Belgrade Airport and is the capital of the province of Vojvodina in northern Serbia. It guards the transportation of the upper and lower reaches of the Danube and the two sides of the strait, just like the throat of the "European Crossroads" in Serbia. In the era of underdeveloped traffic, it was a battleground for the military.
The Petrovaradin Fortress, standing on the right bank of the Nauru, is a window to the history of Novi Sad. As early as the Roman Empire, there were already large-scale fortifications. The fortress was easy to defend and difficult to attack. For many centuries, it has been a battleground for military strategists. After many wars, it has now become a tourist attraction.
The Novi Sad Fortress is located at the intersection of the Danube and Bachka Canals, and its topographical terrain makes it a powerful military fortress.
Because of the strategic position and importance of the fortress in history, it is also known as "Gibraltar on the Danube."
The art space in the old castle was built later, with two eyes watching the Danube in front.
Look at the new town opposite the castle. This bridge is the bridge connecting the new city with the old town. The calm Danube can also see a clear reflection.
Novi Sad is the second largest city in Serbia and a cultural center. Standing on the iconic Petrovaradin fortress, the beautiful scenery of the city is unobstructed. The piers that were blown up in the river are vaguely telling the pain of the war years, but the strong Serbian people rebuild the city with their own strength and optimism, enjoying life. There are international food markets on the
city square, and there are pedestrian streets nearby.
The Petrovaradin Fortress is the most famous attraction of Novi Sad, the second largest fortress in Europe. The Danube River flows from the side, facing the old town of Novi Sad across the river. Due to its geographical location, it is also called the Danube. Gibraltar on the top." The most prominent location of the
fortress is a peculiar clock tower, the most iconic city label of Novi Sad. The hour and minute hands on the dial of the clock tower are reversed - the hour hand is long and the minute hand is short. It is said that this design is designed to make it easier for the boatman on the Danube to see the hour hand and master the approximate time. Due to the relationship between thermal expansion and contraction, the big clock went slow in summer and went fast in winter. It was often dubbed "the big clock of drunkenness".
There are some galleries and art studios, as well as beautiful and elegant restaurants with a beautiful environment. Through the glass windows, you can see the Danube with the fine silver in the sun.
The fortress on the outskirts of the city, next to the Danube, the fortress that existed from the Roman period, is the second largest fortress in Europe. As long as you climb the fortress, you know why they are building a fortress here. It is located at the cross of the river and is easy to defend. The Danube is not blue or romantic here, but the clouds in the sky are blossoming like cotton candy. Very good looking.
Because I caught up with Sunday, plus the sun shining, the weather is very good, I feel that people from half a city come here to gather together. Everyone is in a circle, watching Serbian children dance. This famous fisherman's lighthouse is crowded like this, but it is no less than the Chinese. The hour and minute hands of the lighthouse are the opposite, and it is said that the fishermen can see the approximate time from a long distance.
