Apatin is situated in the north-western part of Vojvodina, right beside the left shore of the river Danube. This little town is a perfect example of Vojvodina’s multiethnicity, for it is a home to many ethnic groups and to people of Serbian, Croatian, Hungarian, Romanian and other nationalities. When speaking about Apatin, its exceptional buildings certainly stand out, especially churches that are a beautiful sight for any eyes.
Its rich fishing waters and famous hunting grounds are attractions that truly capture interest and attention of any visitor, accompanied by habitats of the Danube deer and other game. Besides, it is not without reason that images of the deer proudly decorate “Jelen pivo” (“deer beer”), a famous product of Apatinska brewery.
