At the present place of the fortress, there used to be a medieval fortress built between 1247 and 1252, and before that one there were Celts, Romans, Huns, Avars. The Slavs and Avars settled the area in the VI and VII centuries. The new fortress was mentioned in written documents in 1347 for the first time as the residence of various commanders.
According to the latest evidence of the archaeological research, the traces of human life on the fortress date back from Palaeolithic period.
The Fortress was completed in 1780. Inaccessible for military equipment of that time, it occupied the dominant position in regard to the surroundings and became known as “The Gibraltar on the Danube”. Now it is a popular sight for tourists and locals as well.









YOU MIGHT HAVE TO USE FIREFOX FOR SOME OF THESE.

Novi Sad is my favourite place in Serbia. Not only is it a pretty little city, but it just has a special kind of charm. I love the pictures, especially Petrovaradin pics that I have not seen before. Those certainly stir up some memories (it is where I lived).

could be a nice town but too bad its in such condition



Yes, I do agree. Does anyone have any information if they are reconstructing this street? No city needs to have a street that ugly! Hopefully it'll get fixed soon enough...
