and two villages in Srem – Neštin and Vizić
The famous castle in Čelarevo, with the applied art exhibits dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries, is 10 km from Bačka Palanka. The biggest necropolis in Vojvodina is discovered in Čelarevo, with the graves from the 8th and 9th centuries and extraordinary archeological findings (gold and other precious metals, weapons, and tools).
Favorable geographical position, as well as good climatic conditions (the Pannonian plain, the Danube river, and the Fruška Gora slopes), represent a significant tourist potential. The famous hunting and touring grounds like Bagremara, Tikvara, Ristovača, and Karađorđevo are in the proximity of Bačka Palanka.
