February 22, 2019 - Citizens of Herceg Novi and their guests enjoyed the specialities of the Vojvodina cuisine and the sounds of drummers during the gastro evenings in the City Café, which was held within the Days of Novi Sad at the 50th Mimosa Festival.
The evening welcomed representatives of the Cultural Center Novi Sad, Consul General of the Republic of Serbia in Montenegro Zoran Dojcinovic, as well as President of the Municipality of Herceg Novi Stevan Katic and associates.
In addition to delicious food and authentic Vojvodina music, the gastronomic evening is also a promotional calendar of events held in Vojvodina's capital, as well as the "Novi Sad for Youth" program.
As the co-founder of the Cultural Center Mirsad Avdic said, there is already cooperation
between the two cities and their cultural institutions, and as an example cites last year's VII art colony "Herceg Novi-Novi Sad", which gathered 13 authors from Montenegro, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia.
Considering the mutual desire to fraternise two cities and further cooperation primarily on the field of culture, Avdic is convinced that the agreement of this type will be realised soon.
"There are a lot of reasons for Herceg Novi and Novi Sad to quench, spread and exchange programs in the field of culture, but also tourism and economy," said Avdic.
The Novi Sad's Choice as the European Youth Center of Europe 2019 and the European Cultural Center 2021
, as well as the festivals and programs that bring tourists from all over the world to Vojvodina, deliver significant benefits to the city's economy.
"Festivals bring tourists, journalist, and media to promote this destination and culture further. For you, this is a Mimosa Festival," Avdic concluded.
Within the Days of Novi Sad, their Cultural Center, in cooperation with the Cultural Institute "Herceg Fest", organized two days and nights dedicated to the poet Miroslav Mika Antic, where the event "Antic's Days" was presented and a film about the poet "First Film" 2017, produced by the Cultural Center Novi Sad.
