Study and party in Novi Sad
Dear friends, it's my great pleasure and honor having this opportunity to represent my home town- Novi Sad to all of you who never had
chance to come and visit this beautiful city on the north of Serbia. Novi Sad is a capital of Autonomous Province of Vojvodina, second
largest city in Republic of Serbia with the population between 300,000 and 400,000 citizens. Situated on the Danube River between Budapest and Belgrade, it is a treasured regional and cultural centre.A widely recognizable symbol of the city is Exit Festival.Our city, in
contrast to many other European destinations, has the reputation, by full right, of a multinational, multicultural and multi- confessional metropolis in which all differences are seen as advantages.
University of Novi Sad
The witnesses to that is also University of Novi Sad with 19 faculties and specialized departments at which the lectures
are held in languages of national minorities or were founded with that purpose. Fortress of Petrovaradin, a historical site, is situated on the right bank of the River Danube. What eyes could perceive are green oases embodied in City parks, with labyrinth of streets and
alleys meandering around them and cut across with wide and straight boulevards. Moreover, there is the Danube as an unsymmetrical, potent axe of the city, embraced with long quay and Strand, the most beautiful city beach along the Danube. In addition to that, there are the bridges that Novi Sad once lost, but that are re-built from scratch.
is the largest music festival in this part of Europe, situated on historical monument of Novi Sad- Petrovaradin fortress.It has a wider variety of music genres such as Rock, Dance, Reggae, Hip-Hop, Folk, and Techno. Many world famous bands played on the festival (Slayer, Moloko, Iggy Pop, Snoop Dogg, Wu-Tang-Clan, Public Enemy, Billy Idol, Pet Shop Boys, The Cult, HIM and many DJs from around Europe and Asia).
Nightlife in Novi Sad is very vibrant and colorful. It seems that this city of Serbia comes to life at night. Novi Sad is an ideal destination for the night birds.
Serbia has a lot to offer to hedonists and eating out to catch local flavors is an unforgettable experience and a highlight for many visitors. Traditional food includes soups, stews, smoked meats, minced meat ( ćevapčići and meatballs), stuffed vegetables (such as peppers) and kebabs. A dish of mixed grilled meat is a speciality. Fish is used in chowders and is grilled and fried.
Alcoholic drinks are wine, beer and brandy; plum brandy ( šljivovica ) and grape brandy (Lozova rakija) are popular. Coffee is usually Turkish or espresso. Fruit juices are produced locally.
Should you be lucky enough to be invited to a dinner with a Serbian family, do not hesitate to accept! Such an invitation is always sincere, eating home-cooking meals always opens a whole new spectrum of tastes and flavors, and šljivovica offered to the guest in a Serbian home is always pure, strong and natural!
