Centre, Novi Sad
Take an evening stroll down Zmaj Jovina street, which is a pedestrian area downtown between the City Hall and the Orthodox Church administrative building. This is a wide street full of caf?s, stores, kiosks and street vendors. As the weather gets warmer, the street gets fuller and fuller and the cafés outdoor seating areas remain packed until late in the night.
In September, this area of downtown becomes a stage for a children's festival named after one of Serbian most famous poets, Jovan Jovanovic Zmaj. There are poetry readings, singing, dancing, all done by kids not older than 8th grade. Very cute.
Main Orthodox Church was built in 1742.
Iconostasis was made by famous Serbian painter Paja Jovanovic and wall paintings are done by Stevan Aleksic.The Church is in the center of the city, in Svetozara Markovica street. It is surrounded by edifices of Bishop's Court, Serbian Science Academy and Gymnasium "Jovan Jovanovic Zmaj".

Cathedral has beautifull tall and thin shafts. It is recognisable by its tall clock tower, and vitrages made in Budapest.

offifial site of Novi Sad :
Favorite thing: The monument of Svetozar Miletic (1826-1901), the most notable political person of the serbian democratic movement in Vojvodina of the second half of XIX century, was finished on october 1st. 1939. Built on the initiative of the Matica srpska, is the work of the renowned scupltor Ivan Mestrovic. During the ocupation period in The World War Two, the Hungarian ocupational authorities removed it from the square in front of the City Hall, and hid it in former army barracks, near The Almash cemetery. In autumn of 1944. on the initiative of Vasa Stajic, it was returned to its original place, but on lower gantry. Some time later sculptor Pavle Radovanovic engraved basic data because foreigners thought that it is a Karl Marx monument. The figure is 5m high and placed on the gantry of 2m in height.
