GRADIĆ – WHAT TO VISIT?

It is about the old part of Novi Sad, which is characterized by authentic buildings from the 18th century. In addition to the Belgrade Gate which was built in 1753 in the classical style, in Gradić you can see the Church of St. George from 1701, the house of Ban Josip Jelačić. According to the legend, there were even 80 taverns in Podgograd.

AAaaa ADRENALINE JUMP AT GRADIĆ FESTU
If you are a fan of good fun and extreme sports, be sure to come to Podgradje on the 2nd and 3rd of September from 20:00. Namely, the AAaaa festival, which is also a partner for the Gradić festivities, will have a checkpoint for the airsoft and the mountain board at the Military Playground on the edge of the forest guard right after the Belgrade Gate.
Airsoft is a pistol-like rifle-shaped rifle and you can shoot in a fixed target. The mountain board is a special type of board for driving, adapted to uneven and extreme climatic terrain. Sounds interesting.
Organizers of the Gradić fest have prepared even more interesting events and you can find more about this on their official site ulicnisviraci.com
