Novi Sad, On The Bačka Plains

Novi Sad / Újvidék / Neusatz has existed for three centuries under these names, as an area of the diverse and rich cultural heritage of the many peoples who live there

The material and immaterial cultural heritage created over past centuries forms the basis of an interactive network of scientific and cultural institutions, which makes Novi Sad today a place for cultures and different identities to actively encounter one another. The old city centre of Novi Sad comprises the urban area of Liberty Square (Trg slobode), Zmaj Jovina Street and Dunavska (Danube) Street. Trg slobode is dominated by the City Hall and the Roman Catholic Name of Mary Church. The city hall was built in 1894 in the neo-Renaissance style, while the Name of Mary parish church was constructed between 1893 and 1895 in the Neo-Gothic style. Also located on Trg Slobode are the Hotel Vojvodina, the city’s oldest working hotel (1854), and the building of Vojvođanska banka (1892), while nearby are the building of the Roman Catholic parish office (1808), the Serbian Orthodox Church of the Assumption of the Virgin (1776) and the Synagogue (1909).

Zmaj Jovina and Dunavska streets are pedestrian walkways criss-crossed by passageways in which there are many shops, restaurants, pastry shops and craft shops. Among the most important buildings in this zone are the Bishop’s Court of the Eparchy of Bačka, built in 1901 in the Serbian-Byzantine style.

For the youngest visitors, we recommend a visit to the Natural History Collection of the Institute for Nature Conservation. There, among other valuable exhibits and collections, they can see the skull of a woolly mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius)

Alongside the Court itself is the cathedralstyle Serbian Orthodox Church of St. George (1902-1905). In front of the Court is a monument to doctor and poet Jovan Jovanović Zmaj (1833-1904). Dunavska Street starts with the White Lion Building (built in the first half of the 18th century) and the City Library. This street also houses the Collection of Foreign Art, the Museum of Vojvodina and the Museum of Contemporary Art of Vojvodina. Part of Dunavska Street also runs alongside the Danube Park, a monument of nature and protected natural heritage site that began being landscaped at the end of the 19th century.

Novi Sad is a city of museums and galleries. In the very centre of the city, on Gallery Square (Trg galerija), there are top gallery displays of national importance. The permanent exhibition of the Gallery of Matica Srpska provides visitors with insight into Serbian artistic creativity from the 18th and 19th centuries, the Pavle Beljanski Memorial Collection preserves and exhibits the most significant works of Serbian and Yugoslav art created between the two world wars. The Gallery of Fine Arts – Gift Collection of Rajko Mamuzić preserves and exhibits works of contemporary Serbian fine arts produced in the post-WWII period. In the evening hours, we recommend you enjoy the opera and ballet performances of the Serbian National Theatre in Novi Sad.

We recommend that you enrich your visit by sampling gastronomic specialities, which include an excellent selection of wines. Restaurants and cafeterias offering domestic and international cuisine are located along the entire stretch of the city centre from Trg slobode to the end of Dunavska Street.
