Must visit

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.

This, actually, is not a cathedral, but a Roman Catholic parish church. It is called Cathedral because of its size. Also, as someone already remarked, it is not called St. Mary, but the church of the Virgin Mary. The church was constructed in the early 1890s. It was built in neo-Gothic style and has a 76 metre-high tower and three... More

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.

The best part of the cathedral is that it is situated in a lovely part of Novi Sad and the architecture completely blends with the surrounding area. A good visit

Located at the city center, this is the largest church (locals refer to it as a cathedral, though) in the area and an important landmark for Novi Sad. Very Impressive. The steeple dominates the skyline and can be seen easily from afar
