Church of the Name of Mary

Novi Sad

Called simply ‘the Cathedral’ by the locals, the 1895 Church of the Name of Mary on Trg Slobode is the largest Roman Catholic church in Novi Sad. Built in neo-Gothic style, it boasts stained-glass windows and a 72m-high tower which unmistakably points your way around the city centre. Tucked in the backyard you'll find relaxing cafes and occasional cultural events.
