Hitchwiki, the site that some hitchhikers despise and so many love, helped us to get a ride really fast. We just had to take the suburbian bus (and not pay for it) to get on the old highway towards Novi Sad. After a bit of waving our hands and smiling to the drivers we got picked up by a Technical University student who was making some nice robot automation software. He was supposed to contact me later but never did – if you are reading this, drop me that e-mail you promised 🙂

We did a stopover in Sremski Karlovci, which is a beautiful and well preserved small town that was first mentioned in historical documents in year 1308. Between 16 November 1698 and 26 January 1699, the town of Karlovci [Former name] was the site of a congress that ended the hostilities between the Ottoman Empire and the Holy League, a coalition of various European powers including Habsburg Monarchy, Poland, Venice and Russia; the congress produced the Treaty of Karlowitz. Serbians have recently moved their Constitutional Court here, because of the historical importance of the town.

Overall this place is worth a visit if you want to have a sip of wine from local wine cellars or have a quiet walk on the neighborhood with some medieval touch.
