What to expect from the tour
This tour is for those who like to take it easy and to enjoy slow pace. If you are fond of architecture and endless plain landscapes on top of that, this is definitely your cup of tea. Good local food experience is also something this tour brings. If you are more of adventuristic nature, see our Hike Kosmaj tour.
#YourSerbiaHost will pick you up from your hotel in the morning hours. First stop en route is Palić, one of the most popular destinations in Vojvodina. The reason for its popularity dates way back into the time, when this part of Vojvodina was part of mighty Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. Many noble and respected citizens of the monarchy used to come here for leisure or treatment. Our primary interest in Palić is not in its spa features, but in its beautiful architecture of the early XX century. Famous architects from Budapest, Marcell Komor and Dezso Jakab designed the whole central area of Great Park. The complex consist of Water tower, Grand terrace, Women’s lido and Memorial well. Park itself is decorated with two Zsolnay vases which were given as a present by the famous producer personally.
After a stroll through Palić Grand park and its most exquisite Art Nouveau venues we continue to Subotica. City which is by far the most important economic, cultural and administrative center of Bačka region in North of Serbia. Main points en route are mansion of Ferenz Raichl, its unique façade decoration won’t leave you indifferent. Then main pedestrian street Korzo where many beautiful buildings stand aside, with the City Hall at the main city square surrounded by two fountains made from Zsolnay ceramics. At the end the Synagogue, often referred to as “one of the most beautiful Synagogues in this part of Europe”. The Synagogue is under ongoing reconstruction, so it is possible to admire its beauty only from outside.
After Subotica and Palic tour we continue further through very heart of Bačka plain. After less than an hour drive we reach Sombor, Greentown, as locals usually call it. We arrive to the center of this beautiful town where several sights surround us: Municipality building, Carmelite’s church, fantastic squares and parks. In Sombor there are several Art Nouveau buildings, but the real charm of this town is not laying only in architecture, but in the spirit of old fashion lifestyle which still lives in it.
After Sombor sightseeing we go to Dida Horanjk’s farm, just few kilometers in the outskirts of Sombor. This farm is famous for its authenticity, exquisite food and warm hosts. Farm is over 100 years old and all objects and items are authentic, but thanks to love and dedication of Hornjak’s descendants everything seams new and spotless. Choice of meals at Dida Hornjaks farm.
After “Bačka” lunch at Dida Hornjak’s farm we return to Belgrade where we arrive in the evening.
