Novi Sad, second largest city in Serbia (350 000 inhabitants), is the capital of Vojvodina. Its owns its world reputation to one the best European festivals - the famous Exit Festival. Every July tens of thousands visitors come to Novi Sad. Everybody is relaxed (there’s no stressful rush in Novi Sad), toplevel acoustic at the fortress enable different events to be really near to each other without sound mixing, and it’s not surprising Novi Sad is the location of the festival.

Novi Sad In Your Pocket

Foreword
On inyourpocket.com Press Box
“In Your Pocket: a cheeky, well-written series of guidebooks.” The New York Times “Most of the traditional guidebook companies now have decent websites, with plenty of advice and information either freely available or downloadable for a fee, but inyourpocket.com is also well worth a browse. Concentrating on both well-known and more offbeat European destinations, its free downloadable city and country guides are compiled by locals and regularly updated.” The Independent “inyourpocket.com (IYP) is one of the web’s best travel resources.” The Guardian “The secret of the In Your Pocket guides is that, unlike many expensive travel guides, they are written by native English speakers living in the city they are writing about. That can lend itself to frank, matter-of-fact advice about your destination rather than jaded impressions from world-weary professional travel writers.” The Irish Times “With so many European cities now within easy range of a low-cost airline flight, this website is a (literally) priceless first stop before your holiday. The guides are free to download and print off as pdfs and have information on where to eat and stay and what to see on European city breaks.” The Times “In Your Pocket guides are each guide is written by an English language writer. All information is also available on the publisher’s website.” Sueddeutsche Zeitung “The In Your Pocket series of guide booklets have turned out to be highly useful in avoiding tourist traps and other travel hazards. The bimonthly, English-language series of small guides are a mix of Lonely Planet and Time Out, and have become a European publishing phenomenon.” International Herald Tribune “Before heading off to Europe, check the In Your Pocket guides at www.inyourpocket. com.” The Daily Telegraph

In Your Pocket guides have been online, in full, since 1995, and our company has continually been at the cutting edge of internet development. The first travel publisher to offer free PDF guides (back in 2002) you can now download our entire range of travel guidebooks - for free and in full from our website, inyourpocket.com. More than 20,000 PDFs are downloaded each month, while the site as a whole regularly attracts more than 250,000 visitors per month. Getting involved A year or so ago In Your Pocket took the interactive plunge and began allowing readers to post comments under our own reviews. The response has been incredible, nowhere more so than in Riga, where the famous rip-off joint Lord Pub has garnered so many comments from angry readers that at one stage earlier this year our system couldn’t cope: we had to reconfigure it to accommodate all the feedback. All of our venues - and most of our features - are now open forums ready for your comments. If you have something to say on Warsaw’s raunchiest nightlife venues, say it at inyourpocket.com. If you want to flaunt your Cornish nationalist credentials, do it at inyourpocket. com. Our local editors are encouraged to reply to comments and make a point of taking on board what our readers are telling us. While we vet all comments before publication, if you provide a valid email address we usually approve the vast majority, no matter how vitriolic or controversial. So if you’ve been ripped off, or simply enjoyed terrific service, let everyone know. If you want to contact us direct, you can do so at readersmail@ inyourpocket.com. Online exclusives The number of pages in our print guides is limited... our website has no such boundaries. As such we are able to publish huge amounts of original content that would otherwise not make it into the public domain. Visit inyourpocket.com and check out our features on famous locals, scams, upcoming concerts and exhibitions, as well as making full use of our Business and Lifestyle Directories: often the most up-to-date and reliable directories in your city, in any language.

The arrivals hall houses car rentals, an exchange office open 24hrs, several ATMs, and there is a currency exchange machine available in Terminal 1. There is no difference in currency exchange rates at the airport and in the city. Jat Airways lost luggage is handled by Su-Port service, tel. 267 63 74, and the lost luggage of other air carriers by Lost & Found airport service, tel. 209 48 54, which will deliver the found luggage to any address in the city.

To get to Belgrade, you can take a Jat Airways shuttle, whose departures coincide with arrivals of that airline, or a public transport bus or you can take a taxi. Ignore the pushy taxi drivers accosting travellers at arrivals hall, because they will rip you off. The best advice would be to call a taxi (ask someone to do it for you) and your taxi will arrive in front of the terminal building in a few minutes. The ride to the Old Town takes about 20 min, and the price should not exceed 15 EUR (except on weekends and public holidays).

By train

Novi Sad is one of the stops on international ViennaBudapest-Belgrade-Istanbul route. The Budapest-Novi Sad leg is about 5 hours long. The Railway Station, located not very far from the town centre, offers exchange offices, ATMs, telephone booths. Avoid the taxi sharks waiting on the semicircular driveway in front of the station building and if you want a taxi hail one a little down the street, or go to the taxi rank located on the parking to the left of the driveway. In front of the station building, you will easily find bus stops. Bus line Nº4 will take you to the centre of the town. The Railway Station is located at the beginning of Bulevar Oslobođenja B-2, traversing the entire town, so it should be fairly easy to get around with a little help of the map..

Important phone numbers
Police: 92 Fire Department: 93 Ambulance: 94 Road assistance: 987

Novi Sad has two bus stations for international travel: the old one – the Central Bus Station located right next to the Railway Station at the beginning of Bulevar Oslobođenja B-2, (take bus Nº4 to get to the centre of the town) and the new one - ATP Vojvodina Bus Station at the corner of Sentandrejski put and Put novosadskog partizanskog odreda Streets (a little further away, bus Nº1 runs to the centre of the town). Where you will end up depends on your bus operator. Novi Sad is well served by a nationwide network of bus routes, and there are bus departures to Belgrade every half hour or less until midnight (tickets from 435 till 700 dinars), so you can use all the international routes linking Belgrade to major cities in Europe.

Local time

Money

The Serbian currency is the dinar (RSD). The first mention of a ‘Serbian dinar’ dates back to 1214. Each dinar is divided into 100 paras, no longer in use, thus prices at shops are rounded off. Coins come in the following denominations: 1, 2, 5, 10 and 20 dinars. The banknotes come in denominations of 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500, 1.000 and 5.000 dinars. National currency is pegged to Euro. You can change money in a bank or any of the exchange offices dotting the town (they are marked with the logo of the National Bank of Serbia). The differences in exchange rates are negligible. Most banks in Novi Sad will change travellers cheques, American Express, Thomas Cook, VISA and Eurocheques. Western Union money transfers from abroad can be collected from the post office and most banks. You can buy almost all goods and services with bank cards, and you need cash only for green markets, kiosks, and paying the parking. Throughout the town, there is a large number of ATMs where you can collect money 24h. Cards widely acceptable in Novi Sad are VISA, VISA Electron, MasterCard, Eurocard, Maestro, Diners Club and local DinaCard. American Express has recently been introduced to Serbian market, and a rather limited number of shops and ATMs will accept it.

Religion

Orthodox Christianity is the major religion. Serbian Orthodox Church became autonomous in 1219. Other important religious communities are Muslim, Catholic and Jewish, and Methodist Evangelical and Reformed communities also have a fair number of followers.

Smoking

In Novi Sad, coffee and cigarettes are generally considered a perfect way to start the day, so it is small wonder that smoking is allowed in all restaurants and cafés. The problem here is how to find a place with a non-smoking area. Smoking is outlawed only in public premises (banks, post offices, hospitals, etc).

Geography

Serbia covers an area of 88,361km2. It has land borders with Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, FYR Macedonia, Albania and Montenegro. The highest peak is Midžor (2169m) on Old Mountain (Stara planina). The Danube flows 588km through Serbia, the Sava River 206km, and the Drina River forms most of the border to the West (220km). Another important Serbian river is Great Morava (185km), created by the confluence of Western Morava (308km) and Southern Morava (295km). Novi Sad lies on the Danube River

Health

Tap water is safe to drink. The estimated number of AIDS cases is low. Doctors and medical staff in state-run hospitals are professional and reliable, and you need not worry about their skills if you should get ill. The worrisome part are poor maintenance of state run hospitals, which is a consequence of insufficient funds, and the red tape involved in hospital admission. If you have a minor health problem, you are well advised to visit a private practice so as to avoid an agonizing wait.

 The Novi Sad telephone code is +381 21

Local laws & Police

You will be required to declare money (including travellers’ cheques) in excess of €10,000 (or equivalent in other currencies) that you bring into Serbia. Prostitution and use of drugs are illegal, so try and stay out of trouble, and anyway,

Homosexuality

A public display of homosexual affection is unacceptable in Serbia. Declared homosexuals are tolerated as long as they don’t show their affections in the street, which could provoke an aggressive reaction from an onlooker. There are no gay clubs in Novi Sad, so they go to ‘straight’ clubs. There are gay/lesbian associations, for more info visit www. gay-serbia.com

If you are a citizens of the EU, Norway, Switzerland, USA, Israel, Japan, Russia, Canada, Argentina, Australia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Cuba, Republic of Korea, you can enter Serbia without a visa and may stay in the country for 90 days. Citizens of other countries must obtain a visa from a Serbian consulate before travelling. Within 12 hours of your arrival in Serbia, you are required to register with the nearest police station. If you are staying in a hotel or hostel, they will automatically do that for you. Failure to register carries a massive fine. For all the details on how to extend your stay or procure a working permit, contact the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Directorate of Consular Affairs in Belgrade, Kneza Miloša 24-26, tel. 306 82 68 or Novi Sad Town Police (Department for Foreigners) BBB, Bulevar kralja Petra I 11, tel. 488 40 00.

Visas

Toilets

Public toilets in Novi Sad are hard to find. The existing ones are fairly decent and can be found next to the Town Hall on Kralja Aleksandra Street, in Dunavski Park, at Sports and Business Centre Vojvodina on Sutjeska Street C-2 and at bus and train stations, open 06:00-20:00. If the need to go comes on whilst you are strolling round the town, you can use the toilet in the nearby café or restaurant.

Safety

Novi Sad is a fairly safe place. There is not a single part of the town where a girl should not walk on her own in the middle of the night. You may come across stray dogs, but they are generally minding their own business and not giving anyone a trouble.

Disabled travellers

Most hotels, restaurants and cafés are inaccessible to disabled patrons and hardly any offers toilet facilities for the disabled.

The most recent parliamentary elections were held in January 2007 and the presidential elections in January 2008. The current President is Boris Tadić of the Democratic Party, and the Prime Minister is Mirko Cvetković. Democratic Party, together with G17 Plus and Socialist Party of Serbia (deceased Slobodan Milošević’s party) form the ruling government coalition. The major opposition parties are the Serbian Radical Party (the single strongest party in Serbia), Democratic Party of Serbia and Liberal Democratic Party.

Josip Broz Tito
Tito is a mystery man who ruled supreme over Yugoslavia for 35 years. Secretary General of the Communist Party of Yugoslavia, leader of one of two resistance movements during WW2, life-long president of Yugoslavia and founder of Non-Aligned Movement. German occupation of Serbia and the flight of the King and the Government from the country played neatly to his advantage, as he prepared the way for a communist rule during the anti-fascist struggle. In the aftermath of the war, he banned the King from returning to the country and lived his life regally. A charmer and womaniser, a hedonist of sophisticated tastes, he was a darling to the proletariat, Hollywood stars, communist dictators and European aristocracy alike. Churchill himself, who cordially detested communists, sipped his breakfast bubbly with him. Unlike other countries of the eastern bloc, Yugoslavia was never behind the “iron curtain”. Tito defied Stalin’s directives and decided that it would best suit Yugoslavia to pursue its own socialist model. In response, Stalin kicked Yugoslavia out of the socialist camp, and imposed economic boycott. Several years later, Nikita Khrushchev, Stalin’s successor in the Soviet Union, visited Tito in Belgrade and penitently asked for reconciliation. Khrushchev was stunned by lavish soirées and the lifestyle at White Palace. Yugoslavia fostered good relations with all the countries in the world and Yugoslavs had the best of the two worlds and travelled freely worldwide, which made them the envy of eastern bloc countries. Tito’s funeral drew the largest number of statesmen in history (from 127 different nations). It also marked the beginning of the collapse of Yugoslavia.

Students of 31 Belgrade faculties, the first established in 1838, will welcome their colleagues from all over the world. It is organised under the supervision of FISU International University Sports Federation, with the Assembly consisting of 141 National University Sports Federations.

49th Dragačevo Assembly
August 5 – 9 Once a military instrument, today the trumpets of the small village of Guča invite to the dance, not war. The sound of the trumpet traditionally accompanies every major event in Serbia's life: births, baptisms, weddings, state and church festivals, harvesting, but also departing this world. The village of Guča in western Serbia has gained world fame with its Assembly of Trumpet Players, the largest and the “craziest” trumpet event on the planet. The competition for the best trumpet orchestra starts at 7 in the morning and lasts till late at night, thus entertaining around 500 000 visitors. While there, don’t miss wedding cabbage, grilled meat, homemade brandy, corn bread with cheese and kajmak, and enjoy competitions for “harambaša”, best national dress, and the ceremony of Assembly wedding. www.guca.rs

A VIsItor‘s ImpressIon
Novi Sad – dancing to its own beat
As Serbia’s second city, Novi Sad has always had a very distinct culture and identity that make it totally different from the capital. My mother is originally from Novi Sad, so I’ve been coming to the city ever since I was a baby and would spend every summer visiting family here, so I’ll always have a special place in my heart for the place and its people. It has always been a vibrant, young and friendly city, and it can rightly claim to be the cultural capital of Serbia, with a great tradition of music, art and literature. Sure, Novisadniks are pretty laid back, but they’re also passionate, spirited and intelligent people – and they certainly know how to have fun. Belgrade might be the capital of Serbia but, for me, Novi Sad is the heart of the country, moving to its own unique beat - and never more so than in July during Exit Festival weekend, when the whole place truly comes alive. But if you had seen Novi Sad 20 years ago, you would never have thought it possible that it would become one of the most important venues on the world festival circuit. There have been some amazing changes over the last two decades. In the early 90’s there was the Yugoslav war, which ended with Serbia virtually isolated as one country after another declared its independence from the Yugoslav Republic. Then in 1999, the city was bombed by NATO in an attempt to destabilize the Milosevic government. After three months of shelling, much of the city’s infrastructure was destroyed, including all three of its bridges across the Danube. Returning to Novi Sad in 2001 after 4 years away, what struck me most was the impact these events had had on the mood of the city. It seemed as if the younger generation – tired of the old ways and of being stuck on the fringes of the world c om m u ni t y - h a d taken charge. They wanted Serbia to be part of the world, not forever on the outside looking in. The creation of Exit in 2000 helped to put Novi Sad on the map. When I was a child, I was usually the only foreigner that most of my Serbian friends had ever met. Nowadays, the city’s younger generation - many of whom struggle to get the visas necessary for international travel – can meet and get to know people from across the globe for the first time in their lives. And the city has been transformed as a result. I’ve seen more change in Novi Sad over the last few years than in all of the previous thirty. As long as I’ve been going there, it has always struck me as a ‘young’ city, full of smart, independent people who loved their music, even if they had to wait a few years to get their hands on what we were listening to in the West. Now - firmly established at the centre of the European festival scene - Novi Sad is tapping out a beat that the rest of Europe dances to. Anna-Maria O’Flynn is director of specialist festival travel company eufest.com, which provides transport to Exit, and other leading European festivals.

salads, ham, and sausages served on a wooden platter. Be sure to try the čekić (hammer) - a bite-size prune stuffed with aromatic cheese and wrapped in grilled bacon. Ideally, the ‘hammer’ should be followed by the chicken soup with homemade noodles (made and cut by hand), after which you can stretch your legs by taking a leisurely walk around the compound until the main course arrives (nobody will touch anything left on your table during your walk). We recommend you try the stuffed zucchini or the smoked knuckle of pork topped with horseradish and spices and baked in an earthenware pot until golden-brown. One of the various types of sweets on offer and a cup of freshly prepared Serbian coffee would be a perfect way to end a perfect lunch. The philosophy behind this type of cuisine is to be able to relish good food and local wine without having to think about calories and every-day responsibilities. During the summer the cool shade of the walnut tree makes a perfect place for eating outdoors. If numerous work-related responsibilities have kept you from spending quality time with your children during the course of the week, this is the perfect opportunity to redeem yourself. You will be able to spend an entire day with them, watching them run after a ball in the estate or joining them in the game. The entire compound is surrounded by fields that children don’t generally find very interesting, so you won’t have to worry about letting them out of your sight. However, if you

Salaš, an isolated village estate surrounded by avenues of trees protecting the backyard from wind and separating it from the fields around it, is just the place for you if you ever need to escape the hustle and bustle of the city or are simply in search of a peaceful setting. There the air is fresh, the food healthy, the atmosphere laid back and the only noise you can hear is the one made by the birds. A group of about 400 salaš estates is located in the area of Čenej village. The salaš we wish to cover at present is the one called Salaš 137. It offers an authentic experience of life in the country (with agricultural land surrounding the estate, as well as farm animals). Houses on a typical salaš are packed with old furniture, antique movables and other interesting items decorating the colourful walls. It is the ideal place for incurable romantics and hedonists, and since it can get pretty crowded on weekends, it would be wise to call ahead of time and reserve a table, accommodation even better (of course, if in the offer). On the salaš estates ‘slow food’ has always been ‘in’, so the Salaš 137 restaurant offers specialties of the local Vojvodina cuisine, prepared and served in this style. Before start the meal you need to indulge yourself with aperitifs in the form of local quince rakija (brandy) and then, while enjoying the company of friends, nibble on a variety of cheeses, pies,

should doze off after lunch and lose sight of them, you are most likely to find them in the stable with various domestic animals. You may also bring your dog along to this salaš since boarding is offered (for both dogs and cats). If it’s well behaved, minds its own business and keeps away from the plates of other guests, he will be allowed to run around the yard freely. As to other adult activities available, archery might be an interesting sport to try out, whereas golf enthusiasts can practice their tee shot. You can also take a ride around the neighbourhood in a horse-drawn carriage or learn horseback riding. More experienced riders have over 20 horses at their disposal for recreational riding. This salaš also offers a playground for children, a mini-football field, volleyball and badminton, a small gym, sauna, and a massage service. You can purchase interesting souvenirs at the 24-hour open reception. operating in 37 countries, great attention is given to wildlife conservation and outdoor education.. Salaš 137 is only 15 minutes’ drive from Novi Sad. Its proximity makes it a tempting option for travellers who cannot find any place to stay in Novi Sad, or those who prefer the country ambiance, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The road from Novi Sad to Salaš 137 is a local road called Međunarodni put (International) which will take you directly to Salaš 137, with no turnings. If you are not sure whether you are on the right track, ask any passer-by for the road to Čenej. When you see a sign indicating a left-hand turn to Čenej whilst on your way from Novi Sad, you should

Salaš 137 has a total of 14 rooms equipped with old, authentic furniture loaded with romantic scent. Each room has a bathroom, TV set and a CD player. Some rooms feature queen-size beds, and others have separate single beds. Rooms do not include air conditioning, which in truth is unnecessary due to the shade provided by the trees, as well as the thick walls, and the bathrooms have large bathtubs perfect for keeping you cool and refreshed in hot summer days. It can be a long wait to get a room on a weekend, whereas on weekdays a room is much easier to book. If you plan on spending the night at the salaš, it is advised that you inform the owners about this before your arrival. For those who wish to use this beautiful and relaxing ambiance to lure their business partners into a deal, Salaš 137 offers a conference room, and there is also the option of renting the entire compound, which is fully covered with a WiFi signal. In addition, if you like, and if previously arranged, the salaš staff can take you on a hunting trip Salaš and being a branch of the Safari Club International, a hunting organisation

S erbian cuisin e is a re fl e c tion o f th e histori cal circumstances this countr y has been exposed to throughout the centuries - a combination of various culinary influences prepared in an entirely unique and original way. The food served in restaurants is healthy and completely organic - with no genetically modified products or artificial flavourings, and the portions tend to be large. Most meals are prepared with a considerable amount of meat, and served with a variety of vegetables. ‘Home-cooked’ meals tend to be more spicy.

Price Guide
(Based on a good meal without wine) Expensive €€€ (More than €12 per person) Mid-range €€ (€7-12 per person) Cheap € (Less than €7 per person) on their plates, such as veal carpaccio with goose liver and porcini mushrooms. Dishes are exquisitely prepared, and a bit expensive for the local fare. Its rather understated décor seems to imply that nothing should distract diners from their food. 4Open 09:00 - 23:00, Sat, Sun 09:00 - 01:00. €€€. AP Babareebaa B-2, Bulevar oslobođenja 88, tel. 42 17 20. Restaurant, café and club all in one place with a modern streamlined décor. It is part of an international chain of restaurants bearing this name. Its versatile offer includes breakfast menu, kids menu and various munchies to accompany your drink. In the evening the whole place transforms into a club featuring gigs and DJ events, exotic cocktails and Cuban cigars. There are 3 PCs to surf the Internet. An ideal place for those who feel uncomfortable if there are no TV screens in sight. 4Open 07:00 - 24:00. €€. APRE

Dva štapića B-3, Cara Lazara 7a, tel. 45 95 24. A small and simply decorated restaurant featuring Chinese fast food. Although not exactly suited for romantic dinners, it is a great place to grab something to eat after a long walk or a shopping spree. It is interesting because it offers some dishes that are not usually found on the menus of Chinese restaurants in Europe and because you can watch Chinese cooks preparing your meal. Good and fast service. 4Open 09:00 - 24:00, Sun 13:00 - 23:00. €€. ABPGS Jang Ce C-2, Trifkovićev trg 2, tel. 662 28 75. Typical Chinese red and gold interior in the heart of Novi Sad. Experienced Chinese chef tries to meet the expectations and keep you satisfied with the meal you had ordered. Once with a menu in your hands, it is quite difficult to make a choice so we recommend chicken with beans. Also, you will be pleasantly surprised with the prices. 4Open: 12:00 – 23:00, closed Sun. €. APLS Sečuan C-2, Dunavska 16, tel. 52 96 93. The first ever Chinese restaurant in town with an unbroken tradition of quality. As implied by its name, it specialises in the Szechwan cuisine.

Arhiv C-2, Ilije Ognjanovića 16, tel. 472 21 76. One of the best restaurants in town, housed in the basement of a downtown building. A combination of wood and brick punctuated with wrought-iron details provides for understated elegance of the interior. It consists of three rooms which differ in size, making it an ideal setting for business lunches and intimate dinners alike. The menu may not be copious, but is guaranteed to lure you back. Even the food arrangement is a cut above the standard offer: the leek and mushroom soup is served in a scooped-out loaf of bread, and succulent char-grilled chicken breast wrapped in bacon and stuffed with prunes comes with peach sauce. There are dishes, specialties of the house, which must be ordered three hours ahead of coming to the restaurant. The only down side to the restaurant we can think of is that the over-zealous waiters would sometimes bring the main course before you have had the time to fully savour the hors d’oeuvre. 4Open 09:00 - 23:00, Closed Sun. €€€. ABPSE Chicken Tikka B-3, Dimitrija Tucovića 3, tel. 45 30 52. Located bellow the north side of the town stadium and specialising, as may be gathered from its name, in chicken dishes. The chicken soup is delicious and if you don’t mind getting your fingers greasy, try grilled chicken wings (€5). In addition to chicken, you can have dishes prepared with other kinds of meat, and various salads. It is quite popular, particularly for family outings. 4Open 08:00 - 24:00, Sun 10:00 - 24:00. €.

Čerčil (Churchill) C-2, Nikole Pašića 25, tel. 52 51 32. Hugely popular with the locals for business and family lunches alike. The pleasing interior consists of several differently decorated rooms and a greenhouse. The service is excellent and the food is good and varied, the bread is made in-house, but pizzas are a bit of a flop. Meat lovers will be delighted with the T-bone steak. Strangely enough, the kitchen is open only until 21:30 so it is not a place for late dinners. 4Open 09:00 - 23:00, Sat, Sun 09:00 - 01:00. €€€. APSR Francuz C-2, Mihajla Pupina 6, tel. 452 888. The interior, music or the selection of food in this café and restaurant don’t have the French touch. Upper level with a terrace belongs to the café, while the lower, nicely decorated level is reserved for the restaurant. Stake and sea foods deserve recommendation, as well as the stuff that is always ready to help and recommend.

A very extensive menu will cater for any taste with its breakfast offer, sandwiches, appetizers, pizzas, salads and various pastas.

The restaurant offers happy hour with 20% off food and drinks between 18:00 and 19:00. The interior is decked out with posters of Frida Kahlo’s and Diego Rivera’s paintings and murals, and a part of the restaurant is reserved for exhibitions of work by young artists.

Italian
Mediteraneo C-2, Ise Bajića 8, tel. 52 63 22. A very stylish Italian Trattoria only a few steps from the pedestrian zone. Colour ful walls and wrought-iron ornaments give this ambiance a cosy feel. The menu features a fairly large selection of Italian dishes, some of which are cooked to perfection and some would not exactly pass muster in Italy (which does not mean they are bad). You may not always depend on the friendly staff for recommendation as most people in Serbia are easily swayed by the generosity of the portions. 4Open 07:00 - 23:00, Closed Sun. €€. ABP Pasha C-2, Pionirska 1, tel. 661 61 89. The restaurant offers Italian and international dishes. The gnocchi and pastas are all made in-house, and pizza is baked in a wood-fired oven.

A romantic place a stone’s throw from the town centre, serving regional specialities from the Italian town of Modena (incidentally, a sister city of Novi Sad). It boasts the largest selection of pizzas in town and an excellent selection of Italian and local wines. The nice décor and friendly staff create a most inviting ambiance.

Local Specialties
For the main course, most restaurants in Novi Sad will offer roštilj - different types of barbecued meat cuts served with finely chopped onion. Although many world nations prepare their meat in a similar style, Serbs have managed to elevate barbecued meat to an art form, and nowhere else will you have the opportunity to try such specialties. The meat needs to be primed in a particular way before it can be tossed on the grill, typically heated with beech charcoal. Barbecue chefs are a class of their own, and the best of the bunch come from the south-Serbian town of Leskovac. Types of barbecued meat include ćevapčići (cylinder-shaped minced meat), pljeskavice (similar to a hamburger), kobasice (a special, spicy type of sausage for the barbecue), ražnjići (chunks of meat on a skewer), vešalice (boneless pork loin, cut lengthwise), chicken liver rolled in strips of bacon, etc. If you order the Mixed meat, you will get a little of all the above specialties on one plate. If you order the leskovački voz (Leskovac Train), you will get the same combination, but on separate plates that will arrive one by one, so that the various types of meat stay warm.

Serbian

Astal šaren C-2, Mite Ružića 4, tel. 52 80 04. A tiny restaurant with authentic Serbian cuisine and ambiance, its tables covered with check tablecloths. The short menu caters for meat fans, offering various grilled dishes and fresh vegetable salads. The only home-made dish is a veal soup which is a must order. The place is easy on the pocket and the dishes are quickly served, so it is far better to come here than waste your money away on fast food. 4Open 09:00 23:00, Sat 09:00 - 01:00, Closed Sun. €.

It serves large portions of local and international dishes, and the offer includes kid, veal and lamb roast. This place is known for a collection of 2000 bottles of wines from all over the world stacked on shelves 5m high, which line two of the restaurant walls. You can select your wine from the upper shelves and the attentive waiters will get it for you using the ladders conveniently supplied for that purpose.

It boasts a lovely shady terrace fenced off in the manner of traditional Serbian villages and offers a selection of beers and local dishes at more than reasonable prices. In the evening, it often hosts gigs and DJ performances and draws sizeable crowds. 4Open 09:00 - 24:00. €. E Lipa C-2, Svetozara Miletića 7-9, tel. 661 52 59. One of the oldest restaurants in town, which serves authentic regional dishes, particularly those typical of Vojvodina, at budget prices. The interior has not been intentionally

designed to look retro, it looks exactly as it did 50 years ago, only shabbier. The staff is polite, if a little slow, providing a fitting complement to the ambiance. The menu is based on meat dishes, but vegetarians could manage by ordering vegetable soup, some of the side dishes or grilled mushrooms, as well as a fresh vegetable salad. 4Open 07:00 - 23:00, Sat, Sun 07:00 - 01:00. €. ABS Ognjište B-3, Dimitrija Tucovića 3, tel. 45 05 94. Savoury local specialties, some of which cannot be found anywhere else. The interior, with its stone walls and massive wooden tables is reminiscent of a dim lit mountain lodge. The rustic décor is punctuated by numerous old items from country houses. The portions may be surprisingly large so you should check with the waiters (dressed in folk costumes) what you are getting, because if you go as a couple and you are not ravenously hungry, you may share the main course to make room for the soup and the dessert. Be sure to try teletina ispod sača - succulent veal roasted under an iron bell on coal and ashes. 4Open 09:00 - 01:00. €€. AP

Novi Sad In Your Pocket

whAt to see
Essentials
Downtown - pedestrian zone C-2. The heart of the old town features almost all must-see attractions in Novi Sad. The pedestrian zone consists of Zmaj Jovina, Pašićeva, Svetozara Miletića, Laze Telečkog, part of Dunavska streets, Katolička porta and Trg slobode squares. The Freedom Square (Trg slobode) has been the stage for most significant events, whether cultural or political. It is also the usual rendezvous point and the man place for feeding fat pigeons. The street ends with the building of the Bishop’s Palace, which is the see of the Bačka Episcopacy of the Serbian Orthodox Church (built in 1901), with the Cathedral Church (Saborna) right behind. The corner of Zmaj Jovina and Dunavska streets is the location of the oldest preserved house in Novi Sad (1720) known as ‘At the White Lion’s’, which nowadays houses the Irish Pub. Dunavska street, also packed with shops and cafés, leads towards the Danube Park and the Danube river. At the beginning of the street, you can see one of the pockmarks on the town face - the cannon ball which remained buried in the building exterior walls (where it landed during the 1849 shelling of the town). A characteristic feature of these old streets are numerous passageways and courtyards concealing many restaurants, cafés and boutiques, so plunge in and enjoy. The latest town attraction is the small street of Laze Telečkog, full of cafés, bars and restaurants. The green symbol of the town C-2 The living, green symbol of Novi Sad is the Hackberry (Celtis Australis) tree located in the promenade zone in Modene street. This 18 m tall giant has a treetop 22 m in diameter and the perimeter of the trunk is around 3,5 m. It was protected as a Natural monument in 1978 due to its biological and outstanding ambient value.

The square is dominated by two buildings facing one another: City Hall built in 1895 (an exact copy of the City Hall in Graz) and the Name of Mary Roman Catholic Church known as the Cathedral, built in 1895 in the neo-gothic style. The square is encircled by the ‘lead soldier’ building from 1909 (dubbed so after the sculpture of an armoured soldier carrying a halberd, perched on the top of the building), Bank of Vojvodina building (erstwhile Grand Hotel Mayer) and the long two-floor building of Vojvodina Hotel from 1746 (the oldest hotel in town). A monument to Svetozar Miletić, Novi Sad mayor and a champion of political rights of the Serbs in the 19th century occupies the centre of the square. From there, the pedestrian zone further stretches to Zmaj Jovina Street, the main promenade and the commercial centre of the town. The street is lined with numerous openterrace cafés and pastry shops, favourite with those who love to sit back and idly watch the world go by. A monument to Jovan Jovanović Zmaj (Zmaj - Dragon), Serbian doctor and poet, loved for his nursery rhymes, is at the far end of the street. He is also known as the author of the first postcard in the world (sent from Vienna in 1870, featuring a dragon, what else).

Štrand C-3, on the Danube bank at the far end of Bulevar Oslobođenja. Štrand, a lido on the Danube is the focal point of entertainment for all ages during the hot summer days. As many as 15,000 people come daily to the lido: old men playing chess, families enjoying a picnic, men and women indulging in a bit of dalliance, beach babes and posers who come to see and be seen, and anyone looking for good fun in the sun. Set against the background of a large park with deep shade, this 700m long lido has regular beach facilities, including toilets, showers, 700 changing booths rented out for the entire season, security and lifeguard services, emergency paramedics, several cafés and restaurants. In summer, Štrand hosts numerous events and sports competitions. You need to be careful when you swim in the Danube because of its strong currents that may quickly overtake you if you are not a good swimmer. The water purity is checked and while it is safe for swimming, it is not safe to drink, so keep your mouth closed as you swim. 4Open 08:00 - 24:00, Sat, Sun 08:00 - 02:00. Admission 40 dinars, free after 22:00. Petrovaradin Fortress D-2. One of the largest fortresses in Europe.

The fortress covers an area of 112 hectares, and has 13 gates and 16km of underground passages spread over 4 levels. Owing to its size, thick walls and 400 cannons, it was considered unconquerable and earned the name of the ‘Gibraltar on the Danube’. The

erstwhile barracks and underground passages are nowadays converted into the premises of the Museum of the City and numerous art ateliers, galleries, and artisan workshops. The terrace of the fortress, by the Clock Tower, boasts splendid views of the town. The clock on the Tower is unique in that the big hand tells hours and the small one minutes. This was allegedly done so that the boatmen travelling on the Danube could see the time from a long distance. The clock is slow when it is cold and fast when it is hot, so people have dubbed it a ‘drunken clock’. The fortress features several restaurants and night clubs and it is famous for EXIT - the best music festival in Europe 2007. Were it not for the scarcity of garbage bins and rather random park cleaning service, it would have been perfect. You may get to the top plateau of the fortress by car, just follow the signs for Leopold Hotel. If on your way up you should see a lonely vehicle and some commotion inside, don’t worry, with the crime rate so small as in Novi Sad, that must be an amorous couple, but give it a wide berth anyway. The long arched passage is too narrow for two-way traffic, so do follow the instructions by the officers placed at its ends, who communicate the arrival of vehicles to one another over the radio set. You can get to the fortress by bus Nº3, taxi, or take a leisurely walk, because it is not too far. The bridges The first temporary pontoon bridge was erected in 16 century by Turkish army, before that inhabitants and soldiers had used ferry boat to cross the river Danube. First permanent, iron bridge named Franz Joseph, designed by Karl Baumann, was built in 1883. The remains of this bridge can still be seen. Novi Sad bridges were demolished and rebuilt couple of times during city’s history. There are three bridges that connect the Danube banks today: Varadin bridge, Raillway and Liberty bridge.

Jewish Novi Sad
Jewish community Novi Sad B-2, Jevrejska 11, tel. 42 38 82. The Jewish community of Novi Sad was allowed to build its first synagogue in the early 18th century. The local Jewish community belonged culturally to the Hungarian Jewry. Only about a quarter of the more than 4,000 Jews of Novi Sad survived the Holocaust that followed the German invasion of Yugoslavia in 1941 and the annexation of Novi Sad to Hungary. Over 800 Jews of Novi Sad - men, women and children of all ages - were murdered during massacres conducted by the Hungarian police against Jews and Serbs in January 1942. In May 1944, the synagogue of Novi Sad served as an arrest house for the Jews of Novi Sad and it was from there that they were deported to the Nazi extermination camps. The synagogue was consecrated again in 1945 when it became the focal point of the revived Jewish life in the city. The Jewish population of Novi Sad dwindled further as many members of the local community chose to immigrate to Israel and other countries in the 1950’s. There were an estimated 400 Jews in Novi Sad in the early years of the 21st century. Synagogue B -2, Jevrejska 11. One of Novi Sad landmarks This impressive building in the style of Hungarian secession was completed in 1909. As the Jewish community no longer could support the costs of maintenance, in 1991 it was leased to the city for a period of twenty five years. Taking advantage of the fine acoustics of the synagogue building, the city, having restored the interior, decided to use it as a concert hall for classic and other music events. The Jewish community, nevertheless, is able use the synagogue whenever it wishes, as they do each year, for celebrating major Jewish holidays.

GettInG Around
Taxis
Avoid taxi drivers that do not belong to any taxi company (their taxi roof signs display only ‘taxi’ without stating a company name), who usually hang around the Railway station and accost travellers. They will overcharge you either by negotiating an exorbitant fare or using a fast meter. Inside the taxi, the price list and ID card of the driver must be in clear view. Your fare is shown on the meter. Taxi fare in Novi Sad is quite easy on the pocket: there is a start-up fee of 25-35 dinars and the rate per kilometre is 40 dinars. There is a luggage charge of 10 dinars per piece. You can ask the taxi driver about the hotels, restaurants, or indeed anything you would like to know about the city or local politics. Most taxi drivers are smokers, but you can request a non-smoking vehicle or simply ask the driver to extinguish the cigarette.

Car parks

The central part of the town is divided into two parking zones: red and blue. You can pay for parking either by filling out a parking coupon or sending an SMS message. The parking is limited to two hours in the red zone (that means that you first pay for the initial hour and on its expiry, pay again), whilst in the blue zone there are no parking limits (you extend the parking on the hour). If you use the parking coupon, you should scratch the relevant fields for the year, month, day, hour and minute of the beginning of parking session and display the coupon on the inside of the windscreen. For SMS: send an SMS message with the number of the licence plates (no space, capital letters) to 8211 for the red zone and 8212 for the blue zone. The price of one hour of parking is 20 dinars. Parking at the Štrand beach can also be paid by SMS sent to number 8213.

Railway Station B-2, Bulevar Jaše Tomića 6, tel. 44 31 99. Serbian railways are in poor repair, as a result of a long-lasting economic crisis. Railway carriages are very old and the train speed does not exceed 80km/h. Delays and inexplicable stoppage occur with maddening regularity, so if you want to travel round the country in relative speed and comfort, go for long distance buses. Those who love trains should not miss a ride on Šargan Eight (a narrow gauge heritage railway offering one of the most picturesque routes in the world). Tickets for regular local and international lines are available at Railway Station.

Buses

Bus services account for the bulk of domestic passenger traffic in Serbia. There are buses for big towns running at frequent intervals throughout the day. Novi Sad has two bus stations for international travel. Where you will end up depends on your bus operator. The Central Bus Station Sad is well linked to all parts of the town through the public transport network.
