Just 11 km from Novi Sad and 57 km from Belgrade, the quaint city of Sremski Karlovci has been the spiritual, cultural and educational center of Serbia for over 200 years. The city is accessible via car or the Romance (Romantika) Train originating in Belgrade.
The baroque style buildings surrounding the fountain in the town center are of immense importance to Serbian history and culture. With its two tall bell towers, the 1762 Gathering Church of St. Nicholas (Saborna crkva Sv. Nikole) is a masterpiece iconostas of Serbian baroque. The Patriarchy Palace, the residence of the Srem District Episcope, is considered to be Vojvodina’s most remarkable 19th century building.
