Tourist Organisation of Novi Sad (TONS) will traditionally attend the Tourism Fair in Belgrade, which will be held between 23 and 26 February. The already rich tourist offer of Novi Sad can now add prestigious European titles – European Capital of Culture in 2021, and European Youth Capital in 2019.

Other promotions will include accommodation facilities, cultural institutions such as the Museum of Vojvodina and Atelier 61, the most prominent festivals of Novi Sad like the EXIT, Serbia Fashion Week, Cabbage Festival in Futog, and many others.
As representatives of the TONS said, Novi Sad has built an image of a ‘city break’ destination, offering tourists rich content and unforgettable moments, which is why they always come back to Novi Sad.
