Danube Street/Dunavska ulica, Novi Sad
I love parks. During my first visit to Novi Sad I just walking around. On my way I visit nice park.
It was Danube park (Serbian Cyrillic: Дунавски парк, read: Dunavski park). This is the oldest and most beautiful park of Novi Sad. Some introduction: park was built on swampy land, which is often flooded when the Danube rise.
First trees here was planted was during 70'th of 19th century, but it considerate that it was officially build in 1895.
There is also and little lake is (Serbian Cyrillic: Мало језеро, read: Dunavski park). That lake dominated here and is a remembrance on a pond that once used called Mali Liman (Serbian Cyrillic: Мали Лиман).
On the lake is a small islet, called Erzhebet (Hungarian Erzsébet), after murdered Austrian-Hungarian Countess Erzsébet Báthory, in whose memory was planted weeping willow trees.
In the middle of a pond, a fountain nymph, the work of the first Serbian trained sculptor Djordje Jovanovic.
In the park there are also monuments to well known Serbian poets: Duro Jaksic (Serbian Cyrillic: Ђуро Јакшић), Branko Radicevic (Serbian Cyrillic: Бранко Радичевић) and Miroslav Antic (Serbian Cyrillic: Мирослав Антић) and Saint Sergius of Radonezh (Russian Orthodox Church).
One of the oldest, but the most beautiful streets in Novi Sad is Dunavska street. In continuation of the Dunavska Street is Dunavski park where is located the monument of Djura Jaksic. At the other side of Dunavska street is Zmaj Jovina street, the main street where is, beside many impressive buildings, also located the Zmaj Jova monument. The building of the Museum of Vojvodina is in Dunavska street (1900) designed by Gyula Vagner.
