Novi Sad

Novi Sad- Serbian Athens

One of the first impressions the city makes is that it is a city of well-tended beauty. Its architecture and spirit have been shaped by many a nation. Easy-going and surrounded by fertile lowland, Fruška Mountain and the Danube, the capital city of Vojvodina is a pearl amongst the Serbian cities. It is also called the ‘Serbian Athens’, He is home to south-east Europe’s largest music festival, EXIT. The Fortress of Petrovaradin, with its monumental architecture, its underground galleries and miraculous maze of tunnels, is one of the symbols of the city. From the Clock-Tower plateau, one can have a panoramic view of Novi Sad and the Danube. Within the compound, can be found the City Museum, the Planetarium, and a line of art ateliers. The Lower Town of the Fortress, with its narrow streets and baroque edifices provides a very different ambience. The city centre is dominated by the edifice of the City Hall, the catholic Cathedral of Mary’s Name and the monument of Svetozar Miletić. Next to the Cathedral, in the churchyard, there is a valuable edifice of “Plava banija” (Eng. Blue Banovina) and also the City Cultural Centre.
