Church of Saint Sava

The largest church in Serbia and one of the largest Orthodox churches in the world, under construction since 1935 and still not finished. It's locally known as a temple ("Hram") to distinguish it from the smaller St Sava Church ("Tsrkva") adjacent. The current work is to decorate inside the main dome, so nave and south aisle are closed. You enter via the gloomy north aisle, then go downstairs to the main attraction, the crypt (no lift). This is an extensive, bright and polished area with walls covered with modern iconography, so it feels more like a metro interchange for Orthodox saints than a religious building. Services are held regularly here and in the Church, which you can also visit (till 19:00).

A fortress that no enemy has ever taken, it now hosts the annual Exit Festival within its trenches and walls. The fortress offers the best view over Novi Sad, which is especially beautiful during the sunsets. The clock tower on the fortress is a symbol of Novi Sad, specific for its hands being reversed (the large hand showing hours and small one showing minutes). This dates back to the times when people didn't have their own clocks, and were relying on public ones. The hands were reversed so that the one showing hours (therefore being more important) was easier to see. There is also a museum on the fortress, "Muzej Grada Novog Sada", some restaurants with a great view, and even night clubs.
