Petrovaradin Fortress | Novi Sad, Serbia
Petrovaradin Fortress is a fortress in Novi Sad, Serbia. It is located in the province of Vojvodina, on the right bank of the Danube river. The cornerstone of the present-day southern part of the fortress was laid on October 18, 1692, by Charles Eugène de Croÿ. Petrovaradin Fortress has many underground tunnels as well (16 km of underground countermine system).

In 1991 Petrovaradin Fortress was added to Spatial Cultural-Historical Units of Great Importance list, and it is protected by Republic of Serbia.

The minute and hour hand on the clock tower are reversed, with small hand showing minutes, and big hand showing hours. That was created like that in order that fisherman's from Danube river can see what time is it from long distance. "Reversed clock" is one of the landmarks of Petrovaradin fortress.
