Novi Sad is the second-largest city in Serbia.
In the heart of Novi Sad, you’ll discover a picturesque, wide pedestrian street designed with a unique architectural style. It’s a bustling hub filled with an array of shops, restaurants, and stalls. Our daughters had a blast riding small jeeps and indulging in popcorn and ice cream.
Not far from this bustling street, you’ll find a magnificent fortress that offers panoramic views of the city and the river. I highly recommend taking a walk to the fortress – while it involves a bit of a climb, the journey is as delightful as the destination. Inside the fortress, you can explore pathways that encircle the structure.
Novi Sad has an enchanting quality that makes it a worthwhile destination for a day trip.
You can reach Novi Sad by car, which is approximately an hour and fifteen minutes’ drive from Belgrade. Alternatively, there’s an exciting and experiential option: the high-speed train that commenced operation in 2022. This train journey only takes 37 minutes and is a delight for children. The train is modern, clean, and comfortable. It’s advisable to book tickets in advance, especially on weekends and holidays. The seating arrangement is similar to that of an airplane, with assigned seat numbers. On the train, there’s a flight attendant service available for ordering sandwiches or drinks.
