The Bečej municipality is located in the South Bačka District, in the heart of Vojvodina. The Tisza river is considered its gem. Here you can find the István Türr lock, which Gustave Eiffel helped design (the same who designed the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the Western railway station in Budapest). Two churches are located in the town center, as well as the Panorama restaurant, which offers an excellent view of the entire city. Culture enthusiasts can visit the City Museum, City Theater, National Library, and the Than Memorial House. The town is home to significant events such as the KMV (High School Art Competition) and Májusi Játékok (May Games). The Fantast castle is only a few kilometers from Bečej; the view from the top of the building is unforgettable. The nearby Bačko Gradište is home to the lake Biserno Ostrvo (Pearl Lake) near a backwater section of the Tisza.
