Novi Sad is the second largest city of Serbia, the capital of the autonomous province of Vojvodina. It is located in the southern part of the Pannonian Plain, on the banks of the Danube river, facing the northern slopes of Fruška Gora mountain.

Novi Sad 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 of the Serbian Athens. The city was heavily devastated in the 1848 Revolution, but it was subsequently restored. Today, along with the capital city of Belgrade, Novi Sad is the industrial and financial center of the Serbian economy; also, it was named one of the 2021 European Capital of Culture cities.

The Republic of Serbia is a landlocked country situated at the crossroads of Central and Southeast Europe in the southern Pannonian Plain and the central Balkans. Serbia numbers around 7 million residents; its capital, Belgrade, ranks among the oldest and largest cities in Europe. Serbia is not a mass-tourism destination but nevertheless has a diverse range of touristic products. Tourism is mainly focused on the mountains and spas of the country, which are mostly visited by domestic tourists. Capital Belgrade is preferred choice of foreign tourists and Novi Sad for younger generations because of world-famous music festival Exit.
