All year long, Novi Sad will be the true European capital of culture, so all important institutions, including the Historical Archive of the City of Novi Sad, are joining in the celebration of this title. Wanting to give our fellow citizens a retrospective of what the City used to look like in the 60s, 70s and 80s of the last century, the exhibition “Novi Sad and Its Citizens” was opened in the hall of the Archives.
The exhibition consists of 17 segments, which show how the City center looked in the past, how certain parts of the City were created, what the traffic looked like, the Petrovaradin fortress, the quay, bridges and many other more or less well-known symbols of Novi Sad. The greatest value of the exhibition is that the photos show the generations that have shaped and built Novi Sad, but also how the city has changed and how dynamic those times were. All these changes were recorded by the cameras of renowned photo-reporters of the most important provincial newspaper – “Dnevnik”.
Along with Petar Djurdjevic, Director of the Historical Archive the exhibition was opened by Stanko Ljubicic, Assistant Mayor as well as Dusan Vlaovic, Director of “Dnevnik” who also addressed the audience. As a genuine Vojvodina and Novi Sad based company we supported the organization of this exhibition, because it is part of our City’s history. The love for the City where we live and work can be seen in our new logo, which connects Petrovaradin and Novi Sad via the new Zezelj Bridge, a symbol of the resistance of the people of Novi Sad against all the adversities that befell them. That is why the cooperation and support of institutions and companies should be more pronounced this year, and sheer abundance of knowledge should be spread about the capital of Vojvodina. This exhibition will be exhibited in the hall of the Historical Archive during the next three months, and if you are not able to visit it live, you can view it HERE..
