Subotica - the story of Vojvodina

Austro - Hungarian charm still exists!

We travel north where it is still possible to find remains of Austro - Hungarian influence even a century after they vanished. Let’s go to our first destination, city of Subotica. As we visit city center we will see wonderful architecture from the times of 19th and 20th century that makes city of Subotica one of the most beautiful in Serbia. City hall building is a crown jewel surrounded with main city square around which are buildings that are former banks, insurance companies, pharmacies and, of course, numerous taverns in which many poets and artists spent their “productive days”.

Just next to the city of Subotica there is wonderful Lake Palić where we will take a small break and enjoy nature.

So called “Salaš” is Vojvodina’s most authentic institution, originally place where workers rested after long hours of work in the fields in the summer, nowadays they became a place to “run away” from city bustle. We are visiting Majkin salaš that is a true ethno park where you have a chance to see how Vojvodina peasant house looked like during the times of Austro-Hungarian reign, if you get hungry you can also try some typical dishes and authentic rakijas and wines as well as to hear local music. Vojvodina food is a mix of Hungarian, Romanian, Ottoman and of course, Serbian cuisine.

If you are not sure about Austro - Hungarian influence then as cherry on the cake at the end we will visit a castle from the times of Habsburgs where rich and influential Serbian family Dunđerski lived, Fantast castle. Many love stories and legends are connected with them and their wealth was enormous. Unlike salaš in this castle you have a chance to see how rich people from past times spent their days and months, how they used their leisure times and how they spent and invested their wealth.

Meet the North of Serbia its flat lands and curvy history.
