Jedan Fantastičan dan

Koliko li samo prelepih iznenađenja ova naša ravnica krije! Nemoguće ih je sve i nabrojati, a kamoli doživeti. Lepotu ne kriju samo njeni vidici i priroda, već i građevine i kao ljude koji, slučajno ili namerno, provode svoje dane u njoj. Ono čemu sam posvetila ovaj post je dvorac Fantast koji se nalazi na samo 65km od mog rodnog grada, 60km od Novog Sada i 135km od Beograda. Idealno da provedem jedno sunčano leto na kraju leta.

Dvorac je sagradio 1925. g. Bogdan Dunđerski, koji je pripadao jednoj od najbogatijih porodica Vojvodine. Priča se da je prelepi dvorac Dunđerski sagradio kako bi dokazao da nije bankrotirao kako se tada pričalo. On je u sred ravnice sagradio svoj dvorac iz snova! Dvorac je postao jedan od najpoznatijih dvoraca Austro-Ugarske monarhije. Bogdan Dunđerski je bio poznat kao boem. Nikada se nije ženio, a imao je tri ljubavi: žene, konje i vino. Zato ne čudi da je svoj dom nazvao upravo po konju Fantastu.

Danas, Fantast je uređen u hotel u kojem možete odsesti ili samo uživati u šetnji ili obedovati u restoranu. Ja sam uživala u domaćoj kafi i palačinkama sa medom i orasima. Celom dužinom kompleksa, desno od dvorca proteže se ergela koja zauzima više od polovine celokupnog kompleksa. Uz pomoć iskusnih instruktora-trenera moguće je i jahanje, vožnja kočijama, a zimi vožnja saonicama u predivnom ambijentu snegom pokrivene ravnice.

Ako niste raspoloženi za jahanje, možete prošetati nekom od uređenih staza za šetnju kroz park koji okružuje dvorac. Ili jednostavno možete istraživati i lutati i zamišljati kako su nekada tuda šetali poznati umetnici, dame i gospoda iz nekog prošlog vremena. Možete zamišljati kako je izgledalo kupati se u bazenu koji se nalazi iza dvorca. Jedno od iznenađenja predstavlja i kapela Sv. Đorđu koja je izgrađena kad i dvorac i u kojoj se nalazi grob vlasnika i graditelja ovog dvorca, Bogdana Dunđerskog. Ako uđete možete se diviti i ikonostasu koji je oslikao njegov prijatelj, a naš poznati slikar Uroš Predić. I samo, zahvaljujući njemu i njegovom pismu koji je uputio Moši Pijade, ova kapela je ostala sačuvana i nije uništena od strane komunista po završetku II svetskog rata.

Sama bajkovitost mesta i dvorca privukla je i mladi bračni par da na ovom mestu proslave svoje venčanje. Osećala sam se malo kao padobranac dok sam uživala u njihovom fotografisanju i žamoru zvanica koji su nazdravljali i kuckali čašama šampanjca.

Ako sam uspela barem malo da vam zagolicam maštu rečima, nadam se da će vam se još više dopasti fotografije i da ćete se i lično uveriti u ovaj beli biser u sred ravnice!

How many beautiful surprises this plain hides! It is impossible to list them all, and even more impossible to experience them all. The beauty is not only hidden in its landscapes and nature, but also in the buildings and people who, accidentally or purposely, are spending their days in it. I’ve dedicated this post to Fantast castle, which is located only 65km from my home town, 60km from Novi Sad and 135km from Belgrade. An ideal place to spend a sunny day at the end of the summer.

The castle was built in 1925 by Bogdan Dundjerski, who belonged to one of the richest families of Vojvodina. It is said that Bogdan Dunđerski built the lavish castle and lands to prove to all that he was not bankrupt as had been rumored. He built the castle of his dreams in the middle of the plains! The castle has become one of the most famous castles of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy. Bogdan never married, but had three great loves: women, horses and wine. So it isn’t a surprise he called his home after the horse Fantastic.

Today, Fantast serves as a hotel where you can stay or just enjoy a walk or dine in the restaurant. I’ve enjoyed a cup of coffee and pancakes with honey and walnuts. Throughout the entire complex, on the right side of the castle, there are stable and a farm, which occupies more than half of the entire complex. With the help of experienced instructors-trainers you can try horseback riding, or experience a carriage rides and also winter sleigh rides in the beautiful snow-covered plains.
If you’re not in the mood for a ride, you can walk on one of the walking trails through the park surrounding the castle. Or you can simply explore and wander around imagining people from last century walking around, famous artists, ladies and gentlemen from rich families, etc. You can imagine what it was like to swim in the pool which is located behind the castle. One of the surprises is the chapel of St. George, which was built the same year as the castle, and in which the tomb of owner and builder of this castle, Bogdan Dunđerski, lays. If you enter you can admire the iconostasis that was painted by his friend, and our famous painter Uroš Predić. It was only thanks to him and to his letter which he sent to Moša Pijade, this chapel is preserved and not destroyed by the communists after the World War II.

The mere fairy-tale-like castle and ambiance attracted a young couple that was celebrating their wedding. I felt a bit like a party breaker while I enjoyed in their photo-shooting and the murmur of the guests that were toasting and clanking their glasses of champagne.

If I was able to tickle your imagination with these words even a little, I hope that you will like the pictures even more and that you’ll visit yourself this white pearl in the middle of the plains!
