We round off the last weekend of March with a dose of art the Novi Sad way, and we invite you to take a walk through the cultural institutions, where a rich offer for all ages awaits you. As always, we have lots of great suggestions for you, so let us take a short cultural tour of the city together.
A Weekend Dose of Visual Art
The spring days ahead are ideal for visiting exhibitions, which are currently set in several locations in Novi Sad. Our first recommendation is a multimedia installation Mileva: We Are One Rock , in the City Museum of Novi Sad at the Petrovaradin Fortress. You can visit it from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and you will have the opportunity to discover who the mathematician Mileva Marić Einstein really was. We even bring you five reasons on our website to peek into the secrets of the spousal relationship with the scientific genius Albert Einstein through the exhibition.

After crossing the bridge and reaching the city centre, three exhibitions await you at the Gallery Square. Visit the Gallery of Matica Srpska, where you have the opportunity to see the new exhibition A Quite (Un)Usual Serbian-French Connection. Do not miss the expert guidance, which will be held on 26 March in two terms – at 1 p.m. and at 5 p.m.
On Saturday, 25 March, the Gallery of Matica Srpska is implementing an expert guidance through the Large Format Paintings exhibition at 5 p.m., which will be led by Goran Vujkov.
While being at the Square, visit the new Spring in the Gallery exhibition that is opened in the Rajko Mamuzić Gift Collection from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and admission is free of charge.
May your journey this weekend also lead you to Svilara, where the Bloody October 1941 exhibition by the world-famous author Aleksandar Zograf is open. You can visit the exhibition every day from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Take a walk to the Liman Park and Suba’s Plateau, where the first Novi Sad open-air gallery awaits you. You can see the Sekvence Grada exhibition, which consist of works by seven artists on 49 masts that sway in the wind. Prof. Mileta Poštić is among the prominent local artists, and we recently talked to him about the exhibition in the interview.

Have You Visited the Celtic Village Near Novi Sad?
The weekend is perfect for a short escape outside the city, so we suggest you take the little ones on a tour of the Celtic village near Inđija. The tourist complex is located in the sports and recreation area of Inđija, and was inspired by the life and culture of the Celts in this area about 2,300 years ago. During both days of the weekend, programmes for children are implemented, and you can read more information and the timetable HERE. Visitors will participate in numerous workshops, such as making Celtic pottery from clay, writing the Celtic alphabet, as well as sports activities. One of the premises houses a Museum with interesting exhibits, so we advise you to visit it.
Fruška Gora, which hides the rich cultural and historical heritage, is always a good idea for numerous outdoor activities, and the residents of Novi Sad are also known for their culture of hiking on the slopes of this mountain. Therefore, seize the weekend and go for a walk on one of easy hiking trails, or on an excellent 5.5 km long trail (the shorter trail is 3.3 km). The start is at the Information Centre on Iriški Venac.
