As one of the most important medieval monuments in the Serbian province of Vojvodina, Bac Fortress is located on the former meander of the river Mostonga.
Did you know it was also known as “Water town” because it was once surrounded by water? The only way to reach it was only by draw-bridges.
The fortress was built by the Hungarian king Charles I in the 14th century. Initially, it had eight towers, residences, a chapel, barn, well, cistern, and storage buildings.
This amazing castle complex is a unique amalgam of European cultures – it contains buildings from the 14th with additions made in the 15th and 16th centuries with different architectural styles, from Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Byzantine, Islamic, and Baroque impacts.
The fortress is now approachable from the direction of small-town Bac via a concrete pedestrian bridge. Today, it is listed as a national monument, and it’s open for visitors.
