Feel the Balkans: Novi Sad!

novi2Fast photo-post regarding my few days spent in Novi Sad – Serbia.

Novi Sad is the capital of Vojvodina, the northern Autonomous Province of Serbia.

The city is situated on the Danube River between Budapest and Belgrade. One of the symbol of Novi Sad is the fortress of Petrovaradin on the right bank of the Danube. A fortress that no enemy has ever taken.

From Budapest, by train, buy the special train ticket for Belgrade for 15 Euro (intead of 22Euro for Novi Sad, which is closer to Budapest…).

Stay at Sova Hostel, is a nice apartment in the city centre, owners (Mike and his beautiful wife) are lovely and very hospitable. You will be welcomed with a shot of Rakia, local brandy. Your balkan experience can now start! 🙂 Beds are comfy and big
