Ethno House Budisava

Budisava (Hungarian: Tiszakálmánfalv, German: Waldneudorf) administratively belongs to the City of Novi Sad. The settlement was founded in 1884, and the most numerous inhabitants until the collapse of Austria-Hungary (1918) were Hungarians, followed by Germans. After the establishment of the Kingdom of the Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (since 1929 the Kingdom of Yugoslavia), the ethnic structure was changing, and after the establishment of the Socialist Yugoslavia (1945), the ethnic structure of the population completely changed through the process of colonization. According to the City Register from 2013, Budisava has just over 4,000 inhabitants, and the most numerous are the Serbs and Hungarians. In the centre of the settlement there are the Roman Catholic and Serbian Orthodox Church.

The centre of Budisava is dominated by the Roman Catholic Church of the Assumption (of the Blessed Virgin Mary) built in the Neo-Gothic style in 1908. The church tower is 45 meters high and has three bells. Near the church (first street to the right) there is an ethno house created by the great efforts of Mr. Tibor Milanović. In the space (house and garden) that was once used by the sacristan and his family, the items from everyday life were collected, which completely evoke the life of the inhabitants of Budisava in the second half of the 19th and the first half of the 20th century. The house has a display that shows how the houses of most of the inhabitants of Budisava were equipped at the turn of the 19th and 20th century. In the yard there is a collection of agricultural tools, tools that were used to cultivate the land, an old well, but also a series of photographs showing the social life of the inhabitants between the two world wars.
