Novi Sad has been named one of the three European Capitals of Culture for 2021. Novi Sad and Timisoara, Romania, will in November be joined by a city in Greece – Eleusis, Kalamata or Rhodes. After the final presentation of the project “Novi Sad 2021”, which on Thursday held in Brussels delegation from Novi Sad, a panel of independent experts made a historic decision that the first city outside the EU to take the prestigious title is Novi Sad.

“A lot of effort, ideas, creations, personal impressions tailored into works of art, woven into the spirit of our beautiful Novi Sad, and finally came the confirmation of our excellence from the highest level in Europe. Receiving the title of the European Capital of Culture opens a new, big door, for further development of Novi Sad but also the whole of our country, and not only in the field of culture.
