I don’t know what view is more appealing to my heart. When I am on the fort and look down on the Danube or the other way around. Petrovaradin fortress is a brick construction, built for military purposes in XVIII c. Fortification is covering surprisingly wide area, but a lot of it is not recognizable since a big part of it is made of underground tunnels and magazines…
Nowadays Petrovaradin is one of the favorite places of Novi Sad citizens. I am one of them; in fact I have always liked it so much that I've chosen to live in Suburbium, the Lower Town of Petrovaradin Fortress. Even the cold weather, snow, wind and frozen Danube are not stopping me to explore it and enjoy in it.
Even though Novi Sad and Petrovaradin are so close to one another, do not be mistaken to think it is the same town. Petrovaradin is older and has more vivid history. Novi Sad started as a trench of Petrovaradin fort. A proud inhabitant of Petrovaradin will emphasize its own roots and how atmosphere in Petrovaradin will always be different from the one in Novi Sad.
