Welcome to Vojvodina

Affable capital Novi Sad hosts the eclectic EXIT festival – the largest music festival in southeastern Europe – while the hills of Fruška Gora National Park keep the noise down in hushed monasteries and ancestral vineyards. Charming Subotica, 10km from Hungary, is an oasis of art nouveau architectural gems. The banks of the Danube, which winds its way through the province from Hungary southeast to Romania, are perfect for cycling while the region's many wetlands offer some of Europe's top birdwatching.

Compact and well linked by good roads, Vojvodina's tranquil nature, mellow villages and unhurried vibe make this an ideal slow-travel destination.
