Sremski Karlovci, Vojvodina for Cherry Gugelhupf and Riverside Bike Ride

One of the most charming and quaint towns in Vojvodina, the autonomous region in the north of Serbia. Vojvodina is knows for being very green and very flat, which presented a perfect opportunity to take our bikes on a train for some quality riverside rides.

We rode alongside the Danube River, which was super nice and picturesque. We stopped for lunch at one of the raft-like restaurants on the river bank, where we had a delicious fish soup at the recommendation of a friendly waiter who served us. In the afternoon, we went exploring the lovely little center and its very Austro-Hungarian feel. The Gymnasium building and the Patriarchate Court were especially nice. We also went into the absolutely gorgeous park, which was pretty wild and disheveled (in a good way!), in contrast with the rest of the town. We ended our visit by treating ourselves with some tasty cherry Gugelhupf (local specialty) from the town’s main street and purchasing a bottle of tasty red from one of the local wine cellars – as this region is also known for its good wine.
