Full description

Visit Lake Palić, the largest natural lake in Serbia, experience an eye-full of the vibrant colors and outstanding architecture in Subotica, and explore Sombor, a town also known as the greenest city in Europe, all on this private tour from Belgrade.

Begin your trip with pick up from your hotel or accommodation in Belgrade, then head toward the Northern Serbian province of Vojvodina.

Take a two-hour ride while enjoying the colorful landscapes of the Pannonian Plain and hearing stories about the turbulent history of this area.

Home to more than 25 ethnic groups, with six official languages in use, Vojvodina represents a diversity unheard of in the rest of the country. Fine chernozem soils also make Vojvodina the agricultural heart of Serbia.

Lake Palić

After the drive, reach the first destination: Lake Palić. Only 8 kilometers away from Subotica, this lake has been one of the most visited locations in Serbia for many years, primarily because of its landscaping and beautiful early 20th-century architecture.

As the largest natural lake in Serbia, it is almost 5 km in diameter and a maximum of 3.5 meters while the shore is 17 kilometers long. Learn about the local legend about the lake being formed by a shepherd’s tears, causing the water to be salty.

During a relaxing walk, see the most significant attractions, including the entrance gate, water tower, Grand Terrace, Music Pavillion, and Bogojvar, also known as Owl Tower.

Subotica

After a pleasant time at the lake, take a short drive to Subotica, known for its relaxed atmosphere, good food, and quality wines.

Rich cultural heritage assets, lavishly decorated buildings, multicultural spirit, and European charm are the features that make this city distinctive.

During a 1.5 hour walk, see famous landmarks including Ferenc Raichle’s Palace, the Subotica Synagogue, and the St. Theresa of Avila Cathedral, known as The Great Cathedral among locals. Marvel at Art Nouveau architecture and late Baroque styles.

After a walk through the city center, enjoy time to explore Subotica’s streets and squares and taste the far-known local cuisine.

Sombor

From Subotica, continue to Sombor, a town widely known for its greenery and more precisely for the American hackberry tree, brought from the Mississippi Valley in 1903.

Explore Sombor on a walk through the city center. See several impressive sights, such as the Holy Trinity Square, City Hall, the St. George the Martyr Church (The Great Orthodox Church), St. Stephan's Church (the Carmelite convent), and more.

Afterward, enjoy another scenic drive back to Belgrade for drop-off.
