When it comes to meaning of Novi Sad, everyone first thought of the Exit, the festival which became synonym for Novi Sad and give it a seal of recognition. The festival Exit is traditionally held in July and lasts for 4 days, then the same number of visitors, visit the same number of tourists as the city itself has inhabitants, but beside those 4 days, the city that lives and the other 361 days of the year.
Novi Sad is the second largest city in Serbia, after Belgrade. It is much smaller than Belgrade, and is diametrically different, it again gives the impression of the metropolis. Unlike Belgrade and Belgrade residents, who live 100km per hour, Novi Sad and its citizens are slow but arrive in time, the city lives 24 hours, but it is light pace. In addition to cultural sights, multicultural environment, diversity of nightlife, its nature will delight you. Novi Sad lays on the bank of the Danube river and the slopes of the Fruska Gora mountains, which give its incredible charm.

We are moving from the center of the town where there is the Liberty public square, where all important events of Novi Sad are to be found. On this site next to the monument of Svetozar Miletica, the town house is dominated by the town house and the cathedral church. At the end of the street there is Vladicin’s palace – the most indifferent building, built next to the Orthodox cathedral, going by the pedestrian zone through Zmaj Jovina Street. In addition to many churches in Novi Sad, there is one of the few Synagogues in Serbia. The next step leads you through the Danube Street, the street of an unbelievable set leads you through the Danube Street, the street of incredible architecture, which for a moment makes think you get a feeling of being at the sea side. On this street there are also the Museum of Novi Sad and the Museum of Vojvodina, on the walking trail continues the main city park – the Danube Park, the paradise for children. Until recently, the main inhabitants were the two swams Isa and Bisa. In the winter, it completely changes its look and turns into an ice forest. Decorated with numerous lights and with an ice skating rink. In the centre of the city there is a street by the name of Laze Teleckog , narrow street of stone like at the sea side in which you could find cafes next to each other, it is the most famous street by it’s amazing night life.
The river that gives a special charm to the city, also represents the runaway of the city life. The most popular place on the river is Strand Beach, fully equipped with lounges, bars, sports fields, childrens content. Another place on the river is the Fishermen or a fishing island. When the summer comes all the nightlife moves onto it, a lot of rafts, restaurants, which, during the day is for rest and enjoyment, when the night falls on it, night parties begin.
Petrovaradin fortress – one of the main attractions of Novi Sad for the elders known for the fact that Eugen Savojski overtook the Turkish Army and for the youth it’s because of the famous Exit festival. From it you can see the city and bridges – symbols of Novi Sad. In addition to taking a look at it, it offers the possibility of exploring underground tunnels with professional guides.
For lovers of food and nature, we recommend Salas ( places in which you will feel like you’re at the country side ) in the vicinity of Novi Sad, just a few kilometers away from the town, you will come across a complete set of Vojvodina villages and try some of the traditional Vojvodina’s dishes, if you like fish, fish soup and other fish dishes go down the river.

In the 16th century, the Turks built a wooden minaret and a small stream with two dervishes, after which it was named (in Arabic: a resting place). After the Turks left, in 1687, Petrovaradin became a center for soldiers, traders and farmers. The first members of the Jesuit order in the city come in 1693, where they do not capture preserved medieval Christian churches. On 26 January 1699 Karlovacki peace was signed. Before the church of St. George in Petrovaradin was built at the foot of the Petrovaradin fortress, the Jesuits were forced to use the abandoned Tekke mosque, which they had redecorated into the church and brightened the feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary. )
