The fortress in Bač is the most significant and the best-preserved medieval fortress in Vojvodina. It was erected around the mid-XIV century ond a small island of the Mostonga River, which has singce run dry today.

 

Bač is a type of a "water city“, structured so as to defend the lowland marshy environment surrounding the city. On all sides, the city was surrounded by the river and approached by maneverable bridges. The main tower in the courtyard is one of the most beautiful examplse of late-medieval donjons in this part of Europe. The city was burnt and deserted at the beginning of XVIII century.

Today, the fortress is open for visitors, and hosts European Heritage Days, exhibitions and folklore concerts.
