Located on the banks of the Danube, in the peaceful plains of Vojvodina, Novi Sad has all the assets of a Baroque regional capital. Its location and configuration, its cultural heritage, its monuments and festivals, and, above all, an atmosphere made of both serenity and Balkanic euphoria are the assets of a future major tourist destination.
Novi Sad is also the cradle of Serbian culture, which developed there under Austro-Hungarian protection and thanks to great personalities. In the 19th century, the city welcomed all the Serbian intelligentsia, who found refuge there after having fled the Ottoman yoke and often after having studied in the great universities of Vienna, Budapest or Krakow.
It is therefore not surprising that the city was chosen to be the cultural capital of Europe in 2021.
