Danube Park - The most important information
In the center of Novi Sad is the Danube Park, one of the most famous attractions of this city. Today, this park is a gathering place for locals and tourists of all ages, a meeting place, and home to numerous events.
History of the Danube Park
It got its name because it leans on Dunavska Street. During the 19th century, on the site of today's park, there was a branch of the Danube covered by vegetation and then a meadow where fairs were organized. Although the decree to clean up the park was passed at the end of the 19th century, the park received its greatest improvement at the beginning of the 20th century.
