Many of Europe’s most charming cities are located on the shores of the Danube, and Novi Sad falls under this category. This Serbian city is home to many stunning bridges due to its riverfront location, and here are three that are impossible to miss if you ever find yourself there.

Liberty Bridge

Like many bridges in Novi Sad, this one was destroyed during the NATO bombing in 1999, but it became one of the symbols of the city after its reopening in 2005. The public beach Strand offers some of the best views at this cable-stayed bridge, but you should consider crossing it because it leads to the charming Kamenicki Park.

Varadin Bridge

Varadin Bridge may seem pretty ordinary at first, but there’s more to it than meets the eye. If you decide to cross it, you’ll reach the Petrovaradin Fortress in just a few minutes. You should definitely watch it as it lights up at night and see why it earned its famous nickname “Rainbow Bridge”.

Zezelj Bridge

After years of extensive reconstructions, this bridge reopened in 2018, and it didn’t take long for locals and tourists alike to fall in love with it. Its clear white color and unique design transformed this tied-arch bridge into one of the city’s most Instagram-friendly attractions.
