Novi Sad Serbia
(Last Updated On: 26/02/2019)

Year 2014 was when I wandered around lots of beautiful yet unknown cities in Central Europe. After falling in love with Brno Czech Republic and rediscovered Graz Austria, Ljubljana Slovenia or Zagreb Croatia I set off to Balkans where I happened to visit Novi Sad, Serbia. And yet again I was enchanted! This second biggest city in Serbia was a typical place with the rich Habsburg Monarchy legacy and that meant beautiful architecture with lots of subtle details and exceptional cafe culture. It was yet another city located in this part of Europe that was extremely pleasant to visit.

Relaxing Novi Sad, Serbia

Located on the way between Belgrade and Budapest, Novi Sad is a perfect stop for everyone who enjoy the Central European vibe and wants to relax from the hustle and bustle of capitals. I was there in mid November, it was Saturday noon, the weather was just gorgeous for this time of the year and the city was buzzing with people who went for the morning walk or to catch up with the friends over the cup of coffee. I was really surprised how lively the city was but that was also the reason why I enjoyed it so very much!

The city center of Novi Sad, Serbia is fairly small but that’s where most of the attractions are located and where the multicultural past can be seen (Serb Orthodox church, Catholic church and Synagogue are within short distance from each other). It was a pure pleasure to walk around, especially with this weather. I loved the pretty houses, the random street art here and there and so many cafes! Novi Sad, Serbia was definitely the place I could spend more time in, just to enjoy the fact I’m there.

The biggest attraction of Novi Sad, Serbia

Across the Danube river from the center the most famous landmark of Novi Sad is located. The fortress Petrovaradin has never been taken by any enemy and now serves as the museum, five stars hotel and fancy restaurants. Each year in July the grounds of the fortress turn into one of the biggest and best music festivals in this part of Europe – Exit Festival. It’s worth climbing up to admire the beautiful view of the old quarter just below the fortress and the city of Novi Sad spread behind Danube.

Funny thing and such a coincidence, it turned out that my good Dutch friend Anto was in Novi Sad at the same time! We’ve been knowing each other for 10 years and met last time 4 or so years ago so it was such a lovely surprise to meet in Serbia! The world is such a small place and walking around together and discovering the Petrovaradin fortress and surroundings was a great way to catch up.

    Śmiesznie. Patrzę na te zdjęcia i moja pierwsza myśl to “zdecydowanie to miasto jest w Twoim typie”. Masz swój styl zdjęć ;)

      a to dobrze czy źle? :) w sumie ten Nowy Sad to takie typowe austro-węgierskie miasto, które równie dobrze mogłoby być na południu Polski. Ta sama architektura, ten sam styl, ten sam klimat. Ale lubię takie miasta :)

    Byłem tam w 2011 roku i pamiętam to pierwsze uczucie, gdy patrzyłem na to miasto – “co to jest, Nowy Sącz?” :) Bardzo swojskie miejsce, i ponoć ten ichniejszy festiwal muzyczny wymiata!

      też słyszałam, że Festiwal daje radę! może trzeba się będzie zainteresować skoro taki niegłupi :)
      te wszystkie miasta dawnych Austro-Węgier to tak naprawdę takie same i na jedno kopyto :)

    Świetne zdjęcia… zdecydowanie właśnie takiej naturalności szukam, a nie odnowionych atrakcji dla zachodnich turystów…

    Serio całe miasto tak wygląda, czy idealnie czysta jest tylko starówka?

    Coraz bardziej nastawiam się na podróż na Balkany samochodem/autobusem zamiast samolotu do konkretnego miejsca:) Urocze miasto na odpoczynek od zgiełku i pracy.

      i to jest doskonały pomysł! Tylko np Serbia jak ostatnio jechałam to bardzo jak Mazowsze wyglądała, czyli płasko i nic ciekawego. ale pozostałe kraje wymiatają! a Nowy Sad naprawdę bardzo przyjemny :)

    Such a pretty city and your photography is Amazing! To be honest I’ve never heard of this city, and never been to Serboa either! I’ve recently learned that these “less known” countries are real pearls and totally Worth visiting!

      Thank you! :) I’ve become a huge fan of less known destinations, they are usually such a great surprise and hardly anyone knows about them. Novi Sad is a good example of that. If you have a chance visit Serbia, it’s such a nice country! and then make sure to go to Subotica, it’s like from a fairy tale! I wrote about it as well, you might want to take a look!
