Novi Sad holds the prestigious title of the European Capital of Culture and is one of the first cities outside the European Union to have won the title.

Svilara Cultural Station

Placed in the Almaš neighbourhood, one of the city’s oldest neighbourhoods, the Novi
Sad factory for silk dyeing worked up until the 70s. Today, there is no more silk in the
area, but the old factory and the distinctive chimney generously kept the memory of the
times when Svilara was the generator of economic and social development of the
neighbourhood.

Svilara has been initiated and accepted by the local community, while supported and
implemented within the ‘Novi Sad 2021 – European Capital of Culture’ project. It is an
excellent example of revitalization and synergy of different stakeholders joined because
of the common values and goals that they share. Being suitable for artistic contents and
programmes, with the main programme topic being cultural heritage itself, Svilara
portrays a true example of this neighbourhood’s cultural heritage.

A long-standing initiative of the local community to announce the Almaš neighbourhood a
protected, ambient-historical unit, together with the energy that the Svilara Cultural
Station brought, happened in June 2019. In the 21st century, Svilara continues with
production, but this time it’s producing ideas and creativity.

All artists, organisations and citizens with creative ideas are welcome to the Svilara Cultural Station.

Svilara.
Cultural Content Factory.

Symbol of industrial heritage of Novi Sad continues with production, but this time producing creative and cultural content.

Egység.
Place for Cultural Stories.

Former place of the first sports association in the region is now the meeting place – the place for dancing, literature, workshops and education.

Caravan.
Culture on
Wheels.

Mobile cultural station revives the neighbourhoods of Novi Sad. It brings various artistic and cultural content to the suburbs and parts of the city that are further away from the city centre.

Bukovac.
Cultural Oasis Within City Reach.

Blend of the cultural heritage of the former Cultural Centre and contemporary processes in culture, ecology and sports represent the identity of this new cultural station.

Mlin.
Where Culture Grows.

The new cultural station belongs to the former working area, at the place of the former pasta factory, with the programmes designed for children.

Rumenka.
Tradition and Modern Creation.

In the authentic Vojvodina suburb next to Novi Sad, there is the Rumenka Cultural Station which continues and improves the work done so far in the Rumenka Cultural Centre.

Opens.
The Centre of Youth Creativity.

New place for culture which emerged from the legacy of industrial development of Novi Sad at the place of old factories and industrial zone of the city, the former Great Liman.

Culture on the Outskirts of the City.
