Bač Castle is located in Vojvodina region of Serbia near a town of Bač.  Bač Castle was constructed in the 14th century on the orders of Hungarian king Charles Robert I. The fortress has eight towers. One square tower was renovate due to its good preservation. Bač Castle served as an important political and military seat of local rulers. As result of a battle of Mohacs in 1526 Hungarian kingdom was defeated by the Turkish Ottomans armies. Bač Castle with surrounding lands came into Turkish possession.
