This church is unusually tall and thin and the proportions are very pleasing. It has lovely stained glass windows and coloured tiles on the spire. I wasn't there for long but felt otherwise it was unremarkable.

The cathedral reigns over the whole Trg Slobode. I really liked how simple the exterior was and the warmth of the lightly shaded bricks. It is the largest church in Novi Sad but luckily it doesn’t dominate the whole square, it’s cleverly not centrally positioned as these buildings usually are.

There was a construction but one of the places that must be visited. After all orthodox churches this was the first catholic cathedral - actually a big church.

Stand by McDonalds and get a good view of the Mary Church. Large and yellow, and by way of a nice contrast facing the Orthodox Cathedral across the square in the centre of Novi Sad. A slightly melancholy feeling inside; I think the populace prefers the Orthodox Cathedral.

Our family of 5 visited this church in June 2016. It is situated right in the main square of Novi Sad and makes for some gorgeous photo opps. It is equally as impressive from the inside. You will not be disappointed.

It s a big cathedral church in the centre square so you can t miss it! Beautiful inside, with nice church organ. One of the city symbols. Around it are many cafes to sit.

Though most locals refer to this as a katedrala (cathedral) it is technically just a church. But dont let this discourage you from visiting! It is still beautiful and worthy of your time. Very iconic and a key tourist location.
