too bad you can only appreciate it from the outside! It's difficult to miss if you are walking from the main square. My husband and I enjoyed a coffee at a shop nearby while our kids chased large bubbles being blown just out front of this building.

This is the residence of the Orthodox Bishop of the Bačka bishopric. It is not open to the public. The building occupies a big space at the crossing of Dunavska Ulića and Zmaj Jovanović Ulića.

The building is truly amazing, the architecture is incredible and it really stands as a crown to the already beautiful pedestrian street to the main square. What amazed us even more was the projection mapping that took place afterwards when we visited the square at night. It was an amazing show, Nicola Tesla-themed, and it was the first time for...

The Bishops Palace is a mixture of styles built in 1901. It is still a working municipal building. It is part of a series of fairytale buildings erected by the Hungarians at the end of the 19th century to demonstrate their power and seperate identity.

Adjacent to the Ortodox church, this building was (and still is) the seat of the Bishop of Backa. Sadly, it can be only enjoyed from the outside, but still it is more than worth visiting. Marvelous architecture at its best. Try visiting in the early morning since this is the time when the colours of the exterior are the brightest.

The Bishop's Palace in Novi Sad is a nice building at one end of a pedestrian street which leads to Freedom Square. Exterior is all that can be seen

Bishops Palace is located on the main pedestrian street and city center of Novi Sad. It's a nice place for some nice photos. If you are in the area you can't miss it.

The Palace is at the end of Zmaj Jovina, a main pedestrian street in the center. The building is nicely restored, in the front with the statue of the Serbian poet Jovan Jovanovic ("Zmaj"). It is along a the main tourist path of Novi Sad, pretty hard to miss. Can only be looked at from the outside.
