About Novi Sad
Novi Sad is the second largest city in Serbia. It is the capital of the autonomous province of Vojvodina and the administrative center of the South Bačka District. In 1694 Serbian merchants created a settlement by the River Danube right across the Petrovaradin fortress and that was the time when Novi Sad was founded. In the 18th and 19th centuries Novi Sad was called “The Serbian Athens“ . It became an important trading and manufacturing centre, as well as the centre of Serbian culture. Many Serbian poets, jurist, writers and publicists at the end of 19th century and at the beginning of 20th century lived or worked in Novi Sad including Vuk Stefanović Karadžić, Mika Antić, Đura Jakšić, etc.
There are several historical and cultural spots in Novi Sad which nowadays preserve Serbian tradition and language. One of these places is Matica srpska, the oldest cultural and scientific institution of Serbia. It was moved from Budapest to Novi Sad in 1864, and it is considered to be the second-largest library in the country with over 3.5 million volumes. The Serbian National Theatre, as the oldest professional theatre among the South Slavs, was founded in Novi Sad in 1861.
Since 2000, Novi Sad has been the hometown to “Exit“ - one of the biggest summer music festivals in Europe. Novi Sad also hosts many art exhibitions and performances during the year, especially for the young.
