If you want to see the other face of Serbia, so different and yet so similar,then this tour of the northern province of Vojvodina is the right choice for you. As we go farther from Belgrade, you will be able to see the difference in architecture and people. Everything is slower in the north. And flatter.

You meet with your travel guide at the arranged location in early morning hours . Krušedol monastery is first stop on this tour. This is the most famous of 16 monasteries on Serbian Holy Mountain or simply called Fruska Gora. It was built in 16th century by Serbian Royal dynasty when the country was already conquered by the Ottomans and the Eastern Orthodox Christianity was the only way of keeping national identity and heritage. That’s why more than 30 monasteries were built here in the period from 16th to 18th century. Next stop is the baroque town of Sremski Karlovci, the center of Serbian culture in Habsburg Monarchy.  There is the oldest and the most famous high school in the country, with more than two centuries old tradition. This is also a very famous wine region.The most famous from them all is Bermet, which is a special characteristic of the town. Karlovci is the only place in the world where it’s produced. In one of the vineries you will get a chance to taste wine, and then we will take a stroll through the center of this fairytale town. Road is taking us further to Petrovaradin fortresses which is the second largest fortress in Europe, dating from 17th century. This fortress is famous for long underground passages, and beautiful panoramic view of Novi Sad. Today, younger generations from all over Europe come here during summer to be part of the EXIT festival. On the opposite side of Danube is Novi Sad, the capital of the northern province. Due to the fact that this city belongs to Serbia for only a century, the architecture is very much influenced by Austro-Hungarian Empire. On a walk through the pedestrian zone you’ll see Museum of Vojvodina, Bishop’s Palace, Orthodox Cathedral, City Hall and neo-gothic  Catholic Cathedral, the landmark of the city.

Here, in the center of Novi Sad, lunch is different from the one in Belgrade. People of Vojvodina eat, drink and live slower than the rest of Serbia. There is no haste or rush about anything. For a start, we will have rakija, and then, we will continue with a lavish meal. After free time in the centre, return to Belgrade is planned for the evening.
