Sister cities of Novi Sad

Novi Sad (Serbian Cyrillic: Нови Сад, pronounced [nôʋiː sâːd]; see below for other names) is the second largest city in Serbia, the administrative seat of Vojvodina, and the administrative center of the South Bačka District.

According to the latest census in Serbia conducted in October 2011, the urban area of Novi Sad (with Petrovaradin and Sremska Kamenica included) has a population of 258,881, while the administrative area of the city has a population of 341,625(368,708 with Petrovaradin and Sremska Kamenica). It is located in the southern part of Pannonian Plain, on the border of the Bačka and Srem regions, on the banks of the Danube river and Danube-Tisa-Danube Canal, facing the northern slopes of Fruška Gora mountain.

The city was founded in 1694, when Serb merchants formed a colony across the Danube from the Petrovaradin fortress, a Habsburg strategic military post. In the 18th and 19th centuries, it became an important trading and manufacturing centre, as well as a centre of Serbian culture of that period, earning the nickname Serbian Athens. The city was heavily devastated in the 1848 Revolution, but it was subsequently restored. Today, Novi Sad is an industrial and financial centre of the Serbian economy, as well as a major cultural center.
