For three nights in August, Novi Sad becomes Europe’s Rio de Janeiro and capital of samba. Days of Brazil has been one of the most popular summer events in Novi Sad for the sheer entertainment, music and Latin American joie de vivre that exudes. During those three days (the festival is usually held mid-August), everything and anything Brazilian will take it to the streets of Novi Sad – from samba percussionists and carnival dancers to capoeristas and footballers. The Festival usually takes place on Petrovaradin Fortress and the city beach called Strand, while the official opening is held in the centre of Novi Sad. Last year, the Festival was host to 100 foreigners who came from Italy, France, Austria, Poland, Denmark, Germany and many other countries.
