A natural monument, which has been under the protection of the country since 2008 is located on the right bank of the Danube and is the largest park of Novi Sad. Kamenicki Park was formed in the nineteenth century, around the family castle of Marcibanji-Karaconji, which presently serves as a cultural monument of great importance.
The castle was built in the classic style, and the family’s desire was to have a large green area behind the castle to resemble English gardens.
The preservation of the space and style in which the park was designed gives it a special value. At the entrance of the park there is a concrete bridge that bridges the Kamenicki stream. From this site you can see a walking trail that dates from the time of the formation of the park and several vantage points.
Once the park was adorned with five natural lakes, but today unfortunately only one remains. The most striking sculpture can be found in the central part of the park, at the main lookout, the so-called “hill rose” or “the Pentagon”.
The sculptures are in the form of the five pillars of characters that look like Roman soldiers, and it is assumed that they represent the five members of the Karaconji family.
The remains of the sculptures “Sphinx” and “Amor and Nymph” can also be seen in the park. They are assumed to date back to the very beginnings of the creation of the park, namely 1834.
Two-thirds of the park are forested and dominated by native species of oak, linden, maple… However, Kamenicki Park also boasts with exotic plants originating from different parts of Europe.
Two of the oldest oaks, dating from 1805, still adorn the park with its beauty.
At the very end of Danube Street (Dunavska Ulica) in Novi Sad you can find a beautiful park. A true oasis of peace, this park is monument of nature. The Danube Park is named exactly after this street. In its close proximity is also the riverbank walkway known as Kej, where you can observe the river Danube along with a beautiful view of the Petrovaradin fortress.
Once known as Liman, a branch of the Danube, which in the nineteenth century was completely overgrown with reeds and willows, as well as a brood of mosquitoes and frogs is now a location of this charming park.
When the land was leveled all that remained was a small swamp. This swamp was then turned into a beautiful pond with a small island called “Erzsebet”, after the famous Hungarian countess Erzsebet Báthory.
On the small island in the middle of the pond a single weeping willow was planted in memory of Elizabeth of Bavaria, Empress of Austria in who was assassinated in 1898. Today this pond is home to ducks and turtles.
At the beginning of the twentieth century the landscaping of the park was intensified. Trees were planted, walking paths created and the judicial palace was built, which is now home to the Museum of Vojvodina. During this time the park also received its first sculpture – the Nymph.
Between 1958 and 1962, Ratibor Djordjevic, designed a whole reconstruction of the park that became as you see it today. The Danube Park boasts numerous monuments including busts of Mika Antic and Branko Radičevic, as well as a monument to Djura Jaksic.
