Warm welcome to Novi Sad, a city where diversity and differences are understood as an advantage.
It is a city rich tradition and culture, the city of many nationalities.
City perfectly fits into a rich tradition of Pannonian plain, in which everything is prone to grow, from well-preserved secession to post-modern architecture. Nowadays, a widely recognizable symbol of the city is Exit Festival, while in the past, and even so today that place has been reserved for the Serbian cultural institutions: Matica srpska – the oldest cultural-scientific institution of Serbia, Serbian National Theatre, Sterijino pozorje Theatre Festival… Furthermore Novi Sad in contrast to many other European destinations, has the reputation, by full right, of a multinational, multicultural and multi-confessional metropolis in which all differences are seen as advantages.
Novi Sad was founded at the end of XVII century, near the Fruška Gora hill. The famous Petrovaradin fortress was built in the beginning of XVIII century and was called Gibraltar of the Danube. The city celebrates 1st February which commemorates the event of 1748 when it received its first charter of a free royal town, issued and signed by Empress Maria Theresia, who granted the city a high degree of autonomy within the Habsburg Empire. In the 19th century, the city was the capital of Serbian culture, earning the nickname Serbian Athens. In that time, almost every Serbian novelist, poet, jurist, and publicist at the end of 19th century and at the beginning of 20th century had lived or worked in Novi Sad some time of his or her career..
Novi Sad is second largest city in Serbia and the capital of Autonomour Provice of Vojvodina, with the population of about 400.000 habitants.
The city lies on the European Corridor 10 which connects eight countries on its main route from Salzburg to Thessaloniki, and another six countries with its side routes. The European Corridor 7, or the Danube River waterway, connects Western European countries to the Black Sea. Novi Sad is also connected with the Danube – Tisa – Danube canal system, which enables navigation from the Central Europe to the Black Sea. Novi Sad is located on 1,225th kilometre of the Danube flow
