Street art in Subotica, Serbia in pictures

I love how random cities turn out to be a real highlights of my trips. And that was the case with Subotica – a Serbian city located right at the border with Hungary. I don’t really remember where and when I heard about it but it was stuck in my head that I should stop there on my way back home from exploring southern Balkans. And it was the best decision ever as the city was just the prettiest with fairy tale alike art nouveau architecture! It would be hard not to fall in love with it! But before I even found the architecture pearls I stumbled across a random street art on the wall of the local high school! That was the moment when I knew the city is my kind of place, with all that Subotica street art!

There were no random graffiti or tags on that high school wall but a really nice paintings! There was a girl with a camera (my favourite one!), the scene from Japan or the local incredible architecture. It was obvious this place was well thought over and well maintained as there was no random writing that would cover or destroyed these pieces! After seeing that my hopes for Subotica were even higher and I was right. Further along my art nouveau walk I passed by a block of flats, one of many in the city, but this one was special as it was decorated in a really nice, big format mural! It was such a nice surprise!

But the best street art place was in the main square of the city. There, in the corner, the National Theatre used to be: the first monumental public building in the city that was built in 1854 and destroyed in 2007 for the reconstruction. It didn’t seem that there were many works done but the fence surrounding the place is again covered in the paintings. Unfortunately I couldn’t find any info about it but I can assume it was some kind of project. Every single part of the fence had a different painting, some were better than others but overall it looked really good, like a nice addition to the historic center, a creative outburst!

On my way to the train station I found yet one more street art area, a random corner with a brick wall full of graffiti. Nothing too special but it was a treat for the eyes anyway and a really good way to say good bye to Subotica. I’m sure if I had more time and would have gone deeper into the random parts of the city I could have found many more decent street art pieces but what I was lucky to see was pretty good anyway! I’m not trying to say that Subotica is the best street art city in Serbia (apparently Belgrade has an exceptional scene, will check it out in 2 weeks!) but it definitely is pleasant. Altogether with the art nouveau architecture it was a perfect combination that put Subotica on the list with my favourite cities in 2014.

Here’s a little glimpse into the street art in Subotica:

  14. Kami, you know that the biggest problem with the street art is that it can disappear so easily! Your blog is a kind of „street art back up” ;) That’s why you should make photos as often as possible :)
