Go shopping around Dunavska
This pedestrianised street is bordered by brightly coloured buildings that at first thought may feel more indicative of the Canary Islands than Serbia. However, weave through the people here and you’ll find plenty of unique stores, cafes and restaurants. As well as amazing stores, the area also encompasses many of the cities main landmarks including the Bishop’s Palace.
Revel in the facades of Svetozar Miletic Square
Also in the Dunavska area of the city is the colloquially named Svetozar Miletic Square. Named after the Monument of Svetozar Miletic, a lawyer, journalist, author, politician and mayor of Novi Sad in the 1800’s. Around the Square, you can marvel at the amazing facades. Sat proudly at one end of the Square is The Name of Mary Church. This impressive landmark towers above the surrounding buildings and radiates its presence outward.
Sip on coffee at Trčika
For certainly the most unique coffee shop in Novi Sad, visit Trčika. Built into an old tram, it offers not only a great people-watching spot in the centre of the city but a great historical landmark. The original tram system in Novi Sad was in operation between 1911 and 1958, and Trčika is built within one of those original cars.
Travel to Petrovaradin
Across the Danube is the district of Petrovaradin. A much more historic part of the city, there is plenty to do here, but most people opt to visit the fortress. With impressive views over the city and the river below, this masterpiece constructed in the 1600s is well preserved and filled with fascinating stories to tell.
