Lake Palic is a wide, shallow natural body of water not dissimilar to its sister, Lake Balaton, on the other side of the Hungarian border, although it's quite a bit smaller, and amazingly even shallower at a two meter average. The waters are languid and cast a cool, lazy breeze over the shore, making this a place where Serbs escape to when it gets...more
Expressing an elaborative decorative style seen all over this part of Serbia, and also Hungary, the Women's Beach was once exactly that: a Women only Bathing Area. Now it's a famous old building in the town, and home to a relaxing little restaurant out on the boardwalks, a place where people go to enjoy the sun, water or often just a game of cards.more

SUMMER3P 2006 – The Youth Festival
THE (HI)STORY OF SUMMER3P
The Summer3p Festival was initiated in 2003 with its primary goal to stir up the youth of Subotica and to offer them different and higher standard entertainment. S3P is located at the thermal pools near Lake Palic, which is a famous touristic destination in northern Serbia. In the first two years our festival was a single-day event, but the feedback of the audience was extremely positive (people wanted more), so we extended the festival period to 8 days in 2005. That move proved to be very successful and what started as a one-night party began to transform into a mini – festival. People were entertained by various DJs while having fun in the pool. They were also very active in various art workshops and sport competitions. The campaign „STOP THE VIOLENCE!“ was conducted during the festival.
This summer the Festival will last for 9 days (14th - 22nd July). The organizers have made efforts to provide even more interesting and more various types of programme for the visitors. There will be around 20 foreign and domestic performers, djs, live acts. There will also be a greater number of creative workshops and exciting side events. S3P will take place at the thermal pools in Palic (as last year) and also at a part of the lake beach. A tent camp and private accomodation facilities will be provided for the visitors near the venue. For latest news check out our webiste www.summer3p.org.
Dress Code: No special dress code... Swim suit would be a good stuff to bring with :)
I've been to Serbia three times now, if you include Kosovo, so I really shouldn't be surprised by anything, but this tin can bus on rails was a shocker. It was 36 degrees outside, but inside it was even hotter. The tin can trundled along at about 10kmh for most of the journey - dragonflies and wasps were overtaking us! There was barely a breeze and we were trapped inside with dozens of other passengers. We couldn't get out - border crossings!
After this experience, I'd have to recommend coming to Palic via Subotica and getting a bus or taxi to Palic, rather than directly via train. Subotica has good train connections, and the quality of the trains (at least some carriages) can be excellent. The crossing via Horgos to Palic was bizarre - the grass growing between the tracks made the place feel like a nomansland. And that bus/train... well it might be more fun when it's cooler!
There's also a once a day international bus from Budapest, but it leaves at an unreasonable hour (7am). Might be ok for a return journey.
Really excellent tennis courts in a deep shadow of Palic Park.
Tennis Club Palic is the oldest tennis club in the Balkans and tradition of playing this sport is very old.
This nice place, also, offering great choice of Italian dishes and different kinds of salad, everything with the view to tennis courts and evergreen music in the night.
If you decide to stay in our hotel, you can really enjoy the real nature. As hotel is surround by forest, you will only hear songs of birds. Our hotel had nets on the windows so insects were not allowed to disturb us.
At the entrance of the park, there is old Water Tower which was built in the end of 19th century.
