Novi Sad, Serbia’s second largest city is also the capital of the autonomous province of Vojvodina and is located on the iconic Danube river.

My first feeling that this city evoked was: what a big difference with Belgrade, which is rather the gray capital in my humble opinion. Novi Sad seems to me a rather progressive city where there is a lot of tourism, the city seems to me very well maintained and clean, music lovers undoubtedly know this city thanks to the annual EXIT Music Festival, during the summer the banks of the Danube are transformed into a real beach and to explore the city and its surroundings you can use a large rental bike network. All ingredients to pay Novi Sad a visit, right?

    1. Echt wel een leuke, jeugdige vooruitstrevende stad. Opmerkelijk dat Belgrado, amper een steenworp ver, zo verschillend is/lijkt in alle opzichten. Trouwens, je foto’s van in Frankrijk… prachtig! Je bent een enorm veelzijdige fotograaf. Gr Stef

  1. How great to see images and doors from this city. One more I’ve never been to. Did they explain about the NATO bombing in 1999? All their bridges were blown up. 🙁 One of your doors is on the Ulica Dositejeva Street, mentioned in a song by the beloved singer/songrwriter from Novi Sad, Đorđe Balašević, who died for Covid this year. I wonder if you came across him, maybe in a mural. When he had a concert in the city of my father, Maribor in Slovenia, which is on the Drava river, he famously said: “Don’t let NATO see your bridges.”

    1. Yup, I knew about the NATO Bombing in Novi Sad:(. Good that you mention this famous songwriter, will check in my archives if artists painted a tribute wall(what he really deserves as what I read). Will research more about him. Serbia is such an intriguing country, lot of history, ruled by different powers in the past(but I try to avoid politics… especially about this region). This trip made a huge impact on me, seeing the scars of the war. Moaning people on graveyards in Sarajevo, a dash of nationalism in Serbia(I try to say it polite 😉 ), Mostar etc. Srpska republika in Bosnia. It’s a lot of recent history, and not too long ago. Thanks for passing by Manja and giving some additional info. Cheers Stef

  2. Some absolute stunners here, I particularly like the shed door. As always your presentation is immaculate. Is there anywhere in the world you haven’t been?

    1. Thank you so much for compliments:). Even it’s a door, or a mural (our “niche”), I think that we still ‘must’ count with ‘composition’ when possible. I Like to travel, or better call it explore. So many places on the to do list:). #YOLO. Have a nice day. Gr Stef
