Activities:Sightseeing tour Novi Sad
Walking through whole city center and getting familiar with main tour sights
Our tour starts in front of Magelan Travel agency in Nikole Pašić street No 16, at 5 PM. Just round the corner, we are already in Zmaj Jovina Street, the promenade of Novi Sad and obligatory sight for any tourists, not least for the ornamental Palace of the Orthodox Bishop. Next to the palace starts arguably the most beautiful street in the city – Dunavska, with its long line of single-storied 19th century houses. This street will bring us to the Dunavski (Danube) Park, the oldest and nicest of city’s parks.
Three minutes walk further and we reach the Danube embankment. Here we will marvel at the second largest European river, the mighty Petrovaradin Fortress on the other bank as well as at the sights and stories about the troubled bridges of Novi Sad.
Not far away stands Banovina building, long, calm and in gleaming white marble, a 1930s modernist masterpiece of architect Brašovan, nowadays the seat of Vojvodina’s government and parliament.
Passing the Galleries Square where no less than three important art galleries - led by the one of Matica Srpska - are located, we will reach the small Trg Mladenaca Square, named after the newlyweds who tie their knots here, at the local registry office.
Next door stands the Synagogue, a surprisingly large temple in Art Nouveau style whose façade has been shaped almost solely by imaginative bricklaying!
Short walk down the Jevrejska or Jewish Street will bring us to the modernist edifice of the Serbian National Theatre, the oldest professional theatre in Serbia and the Balkans, as well as the most important theatre of Novi Sad.
We end our tour in the quintessential center of Novi Sad, in Trg Slobode (“Freedom Square”). Arranged around it, stand some of the prettiest as well as the most important buildings of this city: the imposing Catholic parish church, the sturdy City Hall, the Iron Man Building, historic hotels Meyer and Vojvodina – all of which tell stories about the past and present.
***After this tour, you have the opportunity to join us on a trip to the fantastic Petrovaradin fortress, which besides a multitude of cultural and historical sights, hides the beautiful viewpoints from where is a phenomenal view of the beautiful Danube and the whole Novi Sad city: Petrovaradin fortress walking tour
