The Fortress is divided into Upper and Lower Town (Suburbium). The Upper Town is dominated by the Clock Tower, which is famous for its hands – the large hand shows hours and the small one shows minutes. The underground military tunnels, a unique attraction of Petrovaradin Fortress, represent a four-storey communication-defence system that is 16 km long, around 1 km of which is open to visitors. In the foothill of the Fortress there is the Roman Catholic church of St. George with a convent, which was built in the baroque style in the period from 1701 to 1714. One of the largest and best-preserved fortresses with the largest informal colony of artists and with one of only five tapestry ateliers in Europe.

NOVI SAD, EUROPEAN
CAPITAL OF CULTURE 2022

In 2022, Novi Sad will be the European Capital of Culture, together with Kaunas (Lithuania) and Esch (Luxembourg). The official opening ceremony of the title year will take place on January 13th, 2022.

Programme narrative of the ‘Novi Sad 2022 – European Capital of Culture’ project stems from the ‘4 New Bridges’ slogan. In the project, the bridges will be used to connect people, programmes and places that are crucial in making a positive impact on the City’s cultural identity. Four programme bridges (‘Love’, ‘Hope’, ‘Freedom’ and ‘Rainbow’) represent eight different programme arches within the project (‘Doček’, ‘Second Europe’, ‘Migrations’, ‘The Fortress of Peace’, ‘The Future of Europe’, ‘Heroines’, ‘Danube Sea’ and ‘ The Kaleidoscope of Culture’), that will be presented in 2022.
