In addition to the usual events, characteristic for this year’s European Youth Capital and 2021 European Capital of Culture, such as theatre plays, film screenings, concerts, shows and exhibitions, other events will take place, such as the traditional Jazz Festival, the Night Bazaar, the Congress of HORECA students, the December marathon, the Days of the Dragon event, the Dance Festival, the famous Winterfest, and the opening of the ice-skating forest in the Danube Park.

“In October, we were featured in many online magazines, such as Lonely Planet, which describes Novi Sad as an ideal weekend destination, and we organized the first working meeting with a major travel agent from Turkey,” says Tihana Putin from the City Tourist Board.
