What travellers are saying
- Amazing place for evening walk. There are coffee places up there where you can grab a drink. The place has amazing views for the city and surrounding. Perfect for sunsets. Free of entry. Only to enter some places like clock tower you need to pay otherwise all free. Come with your camera and snap some shots.Written 12 October 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.

- The main square of European towns is often the loveliest. Each square has its own character and charm particular to the town in which it is located. This square in Novi Sad has the grand and lovely architecture characteristic of the old town. It's well worth visiting the city to see it.Written 26 August 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Awsome place to chill with friends and drink some beer at the beach. Its almost all serbian food but it can be delicious. Music too loud from all the bars here thats why its 4 star.Written 25 May 2023
- Very cool place. There is so much greenery and comfortable space in the park that everyone can find their place, either on a bench or on the grass. In the middle of the park there is also a pond with ducks and turtles. Unfortunately, it seems that this water is not kept very clean by the locals. But otherwise, it's a perfect place for a walk, a picnic, or just hanging out.Written 16 August 2023
- Since someone is visit the fortress, then you can miss this hug clocks that watches the whole city from above. Situated in an ideal places for photos and next to a railing that it's filled with padlocks from people. Nearby there's also a cafe at where you can refresh yourself after walking all the way up.Written 4 August 2023
- I love this tour! I only have one day to visit Fruska Gora. Fruska Gora is very close to Novi Sad and not too far from Belgrade. You can hike or walk but it will take long time to reach the monasteries and you may see only 2 or 3. By bus is difficult. The best way to visit the monasteries is by car. I rented a car. All monasteries are reached through very good roads and the Waze app will guide you. If Waze takes you to a primitive road then stop and restart you search and look for a paved road. The monasteries are 10 to 30 minutes apart by car from each other. All of them offer free parking and there is no entrance fee. All monasteries have central churches and they are the main reason for the visit.
I visited 8 monasteries following their geographical order as follows:
1. Krusedol (starting monastery)
3. Novo Hopovo
4. Staro Hopovo
7. Mala Strana
8. Rakovac (last monastery)
All are open, beautiful, and some have been recently restored. All are impressive; I really like Grgeteg and Jazak followed by Novo Hopovo, Staro Hopovo, Krusedol, Vrdnik, Rakovac, and Mala Strana.
The monasteries have preserved the Serbian culture through religion. Some have souvenir shops that sell very nice and cheap religious memorabilia.
This is a trip to ideally do in a sunny day. However, Fruska Gora is a rainy forest. I visited the monasteries in a rainy day. I enjoyed it. Just have an umbrella handy.Written 7 June 2023
- This beautiful, almost untouched jewel of a park, is a hiker's paradise. You can find trails for every level of fun or serious hiking.
There are many areas for picnics, about 2 dozen monasteries, and some beautiful views.Written 11 July 2022
- I actually learned on the history of the synagogue in TripAdvisor. During WWII, many Jews departed from here to concentration camps. The synagogue is nice and is a nice example of art nouveau . You cannot visit the interior unless you attend a concert. Very few Jews live nowadays in Novi sad. It is walking distance from the Freedom square.Written 10 June 2023
- Absolutely must visit if in Novi Sad. You can miss the visit to Fruska gora, sremski karlovic and the city centre but not this. Rest of the attractions are similar to other EU cities but this one is quite unique to SerbiaWritten 8 September 2022
- Serbia is a very generous country. It has many beautiful places to see and most of them are free to visit. Novi Sad is a lovely city. The city is easy to visit as most attractions are in the downtown. The fortress of Petrovaradin is the only one that is somewhat distant.
To me, the three most interesting and beautiful sites to visit in Novi Sad are the fortress, the museum of Vojvodina, and this church, the Church of Saint George.
This is an orthodox church with baroque architecture. The iconostasis and the ceiling are beautiful. The most impressive features of the church are windows; they are very delicate and colorful and give a mystical atmosphere to the church. The church is on a pedestrian street and is very easy to find.
It is a short visit.Written 10 June 2023
- To me, the Grgeteg Monastery is one of the three most beautiful monasteries in Fruska Gora. The monastery is remote. You need a car to visit the monastery as well as many other monasteries in Fruska Gora. There is parking space at the entrance. The entrance is just pretty; there is a peaceful, very nice trail. The monastery has been recently restored. The church is magnificent! You cannot take pictures inside. The iconostasis is made of white marble; it is unique! The roofs, the windows, the floors, the walls are just charming!
The monastery is managed by nuns and they are lovely! They will teach you on the monastery's history.
I was the only visitor. There is no entrance fee.Written 5 June 2023

- The main Catholic church in the city. Built in Neo-Gothic style. I couldn't go inside, but the tower is visible from almost the entire city.Written 14 July 2022
- The museum was really good, had lots of information about the history of the area starting from 7000 years ago up to the 1900s. Lots of different things in it to see. All the info is in Serbian, but they have separate sheets of printed information in English.Written 1 October 2023
