Novi Sad Serbia

Serbia's second-largest city, Novi Sad, is renowned for its beautiful architecture and student-friendly vibes. One of the city's main landmarks is the 15th-century Petrovaradin Fortress, standing proudly over the Danube River. Although much of the fortress has been modernised, historical walking tours can take you into its ramparts and hidden tunnels, where you'll be able to explore the city's lesser-seen areas and learn more about Serbia's medieval past.

Novi Sad's architecture is sure to rival that of the capital Belgrade, offering a selection of Gothic and neo-renaissance designs throughout. The most prominent example of this can be found at the long-surviving Name of Mary Church in Liberty Square, where you'll also find a bronze statue of Svetozar Miletić – the city's famous former mayor. Other architectural highlights include the Novi Sad Synagogue, the Bishop's Palace, Saint George's Cathedral and the Petrovaradin Clock Tower, home to exquisite views of the city.

There are many things to get up to during your time in Novi Sad. While July's annual EXIT Festival attracts music lovers from across the continent, the city also features museums and picturesque landscapes, best found at the Fruška Gora basin, the nearby village of Sremski Karlovci and the 19th-century Danube Park. At Dunavska Street, you'll find book shops and restaurants below pastel-coloured exteriors, near to the Štrand – a famous beach on the banks of the river.
