Welcome to City of Novi Sad

Novi Sad is the capital of the Serbian province Vojvodina, located in the Northern part of the country. It is the second largest city in Serbia with a population of 286,157. Located on the banks of the Danube and facing Fruska Gora Mountain, the city was originally formed by Serb merchants. The city has maintained a multi-cultural area with Serbs, Hungarians and Germans being the main ethnic groups and today is an industrial and financial center of Serbia.

Those interested in Novi Sad travel should know that the city is divided into three parts. Novi Sad Proper is located on the left bank of the Danube, while Sremska Kamenica is located on the right bank. Petrovaradin is also located on the right bank of the Danube as well. It's important to know that because most of the city was destroyed during the revolution of 1848-1849, the majority of the buildings are from the 19 th century when it was rebuilt. Though there are some old, small houses left, most are being replaced by modern buildings.
