Welcome to Sremske Karlovce. Here we begin the story that closes together the history and culture of the entire Vojvodina. On the old Branko Radičevića Square, near the "Four Lions" fountain, we look at the beautiful buildings that surround us. Frozen in time stand pearls of architecture: the Patriarch's Palace, the Seminary, the Church of St. Nicholas, and the Karlovac High School, which is also the oldest high school in Serbia. We will sweeten with Kugloff.
Wine tasting - Sremski Karlovci
We taste different varieties of wine in the wine cellar. Sremski Karlovci is famous for the "Karlovačka grape harvest" festival. Local wineries have been growing wine on the slopes of Fruška Gora for centuries. We are in the realm of Bermet wine. We discover its ingredients during the tasting. In the 18th and 19th centuries, wine from Sremski Karlovac was exported to Europe and even to America. We also visit the Beekeeping Museum.
Lady of Peace Chapel
On the hill above Sremski Karlovac, with a view of the Danube, there is the Lady of Peace Chapel. After the Great Turkish War and the victory of the Christian alliance led by Eugene of Savoy, over the Ottoman army, peace negotiations were held in Sremski Karlovci in 1699. The legend of King Arthur served as the signatories to create a round table so that everyone was equal. The Christian alliance consisted of Austria-Hungary, Poland, Venice, and Russia. Mediators in the negotiations were England and the Netherlands. After long negotiations, the Peace of Karlovac was signed. Serbs receive certain territories for administration. Today's chapel was built at the beginning of the 18th century on the site of an older building.
The Petrovaradin Fortress
We continue the tour with a visit to the Petrovaradin Fortress. According to the plan of the French architect and military leader Sebastien de Vauban, one of the largest European fortresses was built. Construction lasted from the end of the 17th to the end of the 18th century. It consists of an upper fortress, a lower town, and protruding defensive bastions. We visit the museum and the underground well. We pass through the Belgrade Gate. We cross the Danube over the Varadin bridge and enter the center of Novi Sad.
We arrive in Novi Sad and take a break for lunch. We continue our walk tour in a relaxed atmosphere, absorbing the ambiance of the European Capital of Culture.

The first destination we visit on the second day of the tour is the Bač fortress. It is located in the town of Bač, after which the entire region got its name Bačka. The most important is the medieval fortress in Vojvodina. It was created in the 14th century during the time of the Hungarian king Charles Robert of Anjou. We will climb the highest tower.

We drive along the Vojvodina plain through the villages of Bačka. We arrive in Sombor and see the sights of the city. As we walk through St. George Square and St. Trinity Square, monuments of the architecture line up. The town hall and Sombor County are symbols of the town. The city is full of parks, where the most abundant is the American Hackberry, a type of elm that was brought from North America and Europe, and it is estimated that there are about 7,500 trees in the city. Famous artists found their peace in Sombor and created prominent works. The city museum and gallery "Milan Konjović" keep memories. The old carriage moves through the streets of the city, preserving the tradition. Among the sacral buildings from the 18th century, we will see the old Catholic Church of the Holy Trinity, the small Orthodox Church of St. John the Forerunner, and the large Orthodox Church of St. George.

Let's go to the salaš. "Our salaš" is located near Sombor. Here we will activate the sense of taste. In front of us, there are the specialties of our hosts, old recipes of Vojvodina cuisine. There will be no shortage of wines and brandies. Within the salaš are a children's playground, a picture gallery, and an Ethno collection of old crafts. A farm in Vojvodina is a property with a house and outbuildings. The English translation is farm or ranch. During the trip, our guide will introduce you to stories about salaš.
