As the second largest city in Serbia, Novi Sad has a population of just over 230,000 people. Since it was established in 1694, the city has become an important manufacturing, trading and cultural example for the rest of the country. As the city grows in size, so too does the population as well as the number of expatriates who move there to seek out a fresh lease of life. If you are planning on moving to Novi Sad, but you're unsure how to track down the right paperwork you'll need to make the move, or you don't know what to do with your belongings in your native country, you can turn to the global expat community at InterNations for help.
