In recently conducted survey for the name of the new bridge in Novi Sad, which was initiated on the website gradnja.rs, the biggest number of votes went to the ‘Hope Bridge’ – suggestion of the ‘Novi Sad 2021’ Foundation.
This result is confirmation that, in addition to cultural institutions and numerous organisations, the initiative of the Foundation also has support from citizens of Novi Sad.
The name ‘Hope Bridge’ stems from civil and spiritual values of modern Europe to which Novi Sad strives. In addition to the fact that it suits the new bridge, the results show that it is also the first choice of the citizens of Novi Sad with 13.6% of votes.
