Backo Novo Selo is a lonely village, situated in the west of Vojvodina, in a true never-never land. It is located on a salty terrain near the riverbank of the Danube, in the back of the hunting grounds “Plavna” and “Karadjordjevo”. The village is famous for its Carda (Tavern) “Kod Necka” (At Necko’s), which represents the only window of the small and underdeveloped Municipality of Bac on the wide road of “the main European street”, that is to say, on the Danube. For the first time, one comes by chance to this Carda, and the next time – on purpose. It is situated 70 km from Novi Sad and 20 km from Backa Palanka.
The specialties made of fish just caught in the Danube, as well as, the unforgettable impression of nature will be enshrined in the memory of the visitors. Delicious fish broth is cooked in Carda, but it is also famous for fish fried on “harrow” (a type of grill). The exceptional and unusual ambiance of water and green looks so impressive that makes one forget about the everyday worries of a concrete civilization. A beautiful view of the Danube stretches from a terrace. There is an attractive Dunavac (the branch of the Danube), the woods of old willows and poplars and pasture with the flocks of sheep and gaggles of geese and ducks near this imposing wooden Carda.
Approximately 20 professional fishermen represent an unpredictable site for every day they set out for fishing with an uncertain outcome. The part of the Danube that is only 1.5 km from Carda is known for a good catch of all sorts of fish, especially sterlets. After hard work on the river, the fishermen refresh themselves at Carda and they supply this and many other cardas with fresh fish. Carda has a hall that holds 40 people and two terraces with a capacity of 140 seats. The performance of a tamburitza band has to be prearranged. There is also a car park for 30 vehicles and moorings for boats.
