Serbian Pearl Novi Sad

10.11.2017

Novi Sad is the second most important Serbian city and the centre of the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina. This is where a lot of Slovaks, Hungarians and Romanians live. You will find here the authentic multicultural society and, at the same time, you will be able to communicate in Slovak.

Although you will be welcome by the grey post-communistic architecture at the coach or train station in Novi Sad, you don't need to worry that it will also be present in the picturesque centre. The socialistic architecture does not occur here as much as in Belgrade, for example, as Novi Sad had never been under direct Ottoman influence; it rather reminds more of Croatian or Hungarian cities.

You can start your day in the city centre by taking a pleasurable walk along the pedestrian zone Zmaj Jovina, bordered by shops and restaurants in buildings built mostly in the 19th century. On the southern side, on Trg Slobode, there is a nice building of the city hall, as well as the Roman Catholic The Name of Mary Church. Of the churches, the Cathedral Church of the Holy Great-Martyr George is definitely worth a visit.   When you get tired of the walk, you can relax and enjoy the nearby nature in Dunavski park near the main pedestrian zone. The Museum of Vojvodina is located just next to the park, in two classicist building on Dunavska street. It offers collections dedicated to the history of the region from the Palaeolithic age to world wars, extending your knowledge in the field of the Vojvodinian as well as Serbian history. On the opposite side of Danube, behind the Varadin Bridge, there is the most known monument of Novi Sad, the Petrovaradin Fortress. The walls of the stunning defence structure built in the 17th and 18th century now embrace a museum, clock tower or planetarium. One of the most famous European musical festivals, EXIT, takes place in it in July and it's surely worth a visit. The view of the Danube and Novi Sad on its opposite bank will be a lovely end of the visit to the fortress. The sandy beach Strand, a popular place for the local fans of swimming and sunbathing, is located at the Danube and, according to many, it is the most beautiful beach on the banks of Danube.
