City on the Danube river
On the left bank of the Danube, 45 km upstream from Novi Sad, across from the ancient city of Ilok, is Backa Palanka. The municipality includes Obrovac, Karađorđevo, Tovariševo, Mladenovo, Čelarevo, Gajdobra, Nova Gajdobra, Silbaš, Parage, Despotovo, Pivnice and two places in Srem - Neštin and Vizić. In the vicinity of Bačka Palanka is the famous castle in Čelarevo (10 km) with an exhibition of applied arts of the XVIII and XIX centuries.
The largest necropolis in Vojvodina was discovered in Čelarevo, with graves from the 8th and 9th centuries and extraordinary finds (gold and other precious jewelry, weapons and tools). Favorable geographical position, as well as good climatic conditions (Pannonian lowlands, Danube river and slopes of Fruška Gora) represent a significant potential for tourism development in the municipality of Bačka Palanka. In the vicinity of Backa Palanka are the famous hunting grounds and picnic areas of Bagremar, Tikvar, Ristovac and Karadjordjevo.
