Sremska Mitrovica is the administrative, economic and cultural centre of Srem, and occupies an exceptionally favourable position. It is abundant in cultural heritage, natural attractions, rich cultural life and events, which makes for an exceptionally varied tourist experience.
In the main building of the Srem Museum, in Vuka Karadzica Street No.3, a permanent historical, artistic and ethnographic setting is exhibited, called “Srem through the ages.” It shows the rich history of Srem, from the end of the 12th to the first half of the 20th century.
The city beach near the city centre is one of the most beautiful beaches in Serbia. It is a favourite place for both local people and tourists to swim and engage in water sports. The official bathing season lasts from June to September. The city beach is equipped according to European standards, with the required number of showers, changing rooms, sanitary, sports and catering facilities. It also offers facilities for children and a lifeguard service.
The arable land of Srem and the Mačva plains are connected by the longest spanning pedestrian bridge in Europe, the bridge of St. Irinei. The city is located on the left bank of the Sava river, with one of the most beautiful river embankments in Serbia. On the left river bank, spreading across the wide Srem plain and partly on the southern slopes of the Fruska Gora Mountain, there are eighteen Mitrovica villages, including Laćarak, the largest and most populated village in Serbia. On the right bank, there are six Mačva villages and the village of Mačvanska Mitrovica, merged with the territory of the Municipality of Sremska Mitrovica in the 1950s. Here, on the former Sava river floodplain, there is also a unique nature reserve, the Zasavica swamp.
Together with the plain and the river, there is the Fruška Gora mountain, known as the Serbian Holy Mount due to its large number of monasteries. Four monasteries are located in the Sremska Mitrovica territory: Besenovo, Kuvezdin, Petkovica, and Sisatovac. The mild, sunny slopes of Fruška Gora are covered with fertile vineyards, forests, and lakes.
