The city of Novi Sad, Serbia, sits on the Danube River, 50 mi/80 km by road northwest of Belgrade. Novi Sad offers a number of historical attractions, including the main orthodox church, with iconostasis created by Paja Jovanovic; the Muzej Vojvodine, a history museum; the University of Novi Sad; and the Almas Church, which was built in 1797 and features a classical baroque portal.
Across the river is the Petrovaradin Fortress—now home to an art center—which was built to defend against Turkish invasion (it never saw battle). Be sure to tour the fortress' underground passageways.
Novi Sad is also home to a number of cultural institutions, including an amateur brass orchestra and a children's cultural center. Additionally, because of Novi Sad's location, many resorts are located outside of the town on the Danube.
