Sremski Karlovci, A Day Trip from Belgrade

If you saw more than enough of classic and alternative Belgrade, take a day to see something beyond it. Many head to Novy Sad, which is very nice, but there is also a town of Sremski Karlovci really close to both Belgrade and Novi Sad (reachable by train) which is not less rewarding than any of these big cities.

Starting with the railway station, the town is rather special:
