Bezdan Rural Tourism

Bezdan is picturesque small town with tradition in west of Vojvodina, between Serbia, Hungary and Croatia, close to the Gornje Podunavlje Special Nature Reserve. Bezdan has some 5000 population and excellent chardas-fish restaurants as it is 5 km away from the Danube and some 20 km away from Sombor and some 15 km from the picturesque Backi Monostor village. Bezdan is completely encircled with natural waters – the Bajski channel, DTD channel system, and the Bezdan-Bečej channel and Plazovic stream.  Every spring the International Regatta passes through the Bezdan-Bečej channel. One can rent katamaran boat for enjoyment in beautiful scenery or take a kayak ride along the channel as perfect recreation.

During their stay in Bezdan we strongly recommend visit to the Batina Battle Memorial and also the high Batina Battle monument across the Danube River in Croatia which commemorates the final fights of the Second World War between forces of the National-liberation army of Yugoslavia and the Soviet Red Army against the unified armed forces of Nazi Germany of Wehrmacht, 11-19 November 1944 that ended with antifascist victory of Yugoslav and Soviet Armies. The Batina Operation was one of the most fierce, and strategically important and intense battles of the Second World War with total of 1885 killed soldiers.

Besides well-protected nature, delicious fish in numerous chardas-fish restaurants and attractive old crafts and salash farms, visitors are recommended to visit the artistic Weaving workshop of silk damask fabric in Bezdan, that since 1870 keeps recognizable heritage and customs of this area. The famous hand-weaving damask fabric workshop in Bezdan produces from silk threads highly quality of hand-woven silk damask fabric, along some twenty patterns and in various colors, of which products as table cloths, napkins and linen make unique souvenir and special gift.
