At the site where the Danube is so beautiful that every conqueror wanted to have it, on a tame fertile bank where not only the most diverse plant life but also exceptional people have been growing for centuries already, in the climate that resists all unreasonable hasting and cherishes patience as virtue, that is where a huge inspiration of poets and musicians – a divine Novi Sad – nested itself.
If Novi Sad were music, most probably it would be jazz because only a few genres can unify all the rhythms that intertwine along its stone paved streets, Fortress, Štrand beach, parks… That is where some saxophones could be heard from its cult bands, together with bits of never forgotten tamburitza, gentle guitars of street musicians, and tough drums from the fortress…
Summer is the season during which Novi Sad breathes with full lungs and reveals its full glow. With a number of events held outdoors and numerous events in both the city centre and in all other parts of the city, interesting things are awaiting for you no matter if you plan them or you stumble over them. A large number of tourists from different countries who embark on a kind of a small scale invasion on Vojvodina capital, contribute to the energy of the city. Festival atmosphere in the streets of Novi Sad starts with first summer days already and lasts until the last shy sun rays.
This year, from the 7th to 10th of July, the “EXIT” festival will be held under the slogan “Together. Always!”. During the summer, Novi Sad traditionally attracts fans of carnivals, tambourines (tamburica), and the best is to regularly follow our calendar of events to plan your unforgettable time in Novi Sad.
This is also the period of hot weather, Danube banks, “čardas“ and a reminder that Novi Sad – Serbian Athens – is the city of culture and address of the most important cultural and educational institution among the Serbs – Matica Srpska. Summer is the right time to visit the museums and galleries of the Serbian Athens and to remind ourselves in a cosy shade, far from the throng and heat, that we have been a part of the central Europe for a long time already. In numerous authentic cultural stations that are slowly but definitely becoming new venues of culture in Novi Sad the visitors will be able to attend and participate in creation of many cultural contents throughout the year.
