Welcome to the Petrovaradin fortress - the gate of worlds and the crossroads of roads

Experience the spirit of the past

  Welcome to the Petrovaradin fortress, the pearl of Novi Sad! Here, the stone paths of history tell stories that stretch from the Middle Paleolithic to the Austrian era. Built by order of Habsburg Emperor Leopold I in 1692, the fortress was a symbol of impregnability, known as "Gibraltar on the Danube". With its Upper and Lower Town, underground lagoons and galleries, this fortress keeps the secrets of the past and entices us to explore every corner of it.

  Today it is a favorite place of both Novi Sad residents and tourists, enlivened by museums, restaurants, bars and art studios. Hotel Leopold I, once a key accommodation destination for military officers, now provides guests with an authentic 19th century ambience. Enjoy the most beautiful view of Novi Sad and the Danube, and embark on a journey through history with us. Experience the spirit of past times in the ambience of our hotel or one of our restaurants that provide a unique atmosphere right next to the Petrovaradin clock.

Leopold Ignac Jozef Baltazar Felician

Leopold I

  Born in 1640 in Vienna, as the second son of Ferdinand III and Maria Anna, Leopold I - Holy Roman Emperor played a key role in European history. He became emperor at the age of seventeen due to the sudden death of his older brother Ferdinand IV. He was educated by the Jesuits, who had a significant influence on him throughout his life. He spoke several languages and was a lover of literature, music and nature.

  During his reign, he built the Petrovaradin Fortress, known as "Gibraltar on the Danube", which played a key role in the defense of the eastern part of the Empire against Turkey. His power and reputation grew, which brought him the hereditary right of the Habsburgs to the Croatian-Hungarian throne. In 1699, he issued a charter that enabled a large migration of Serbs to these regions under the leadership of Patriarch Arsenij III Čarnojević. The first bastion on the fortress bears the name of Leopold I.

  The hotel is named Leopold I in honor of his reign.
