Egység Cultural Station

Egység Cultural Station

The building of extraordinary beauty, built in 1890, was a gathering place until the moment when, at the end of the 20th century, it fell into oblivion. In 2012, it was renovated with the help of fellow citizens, and now its doors are open to anyone who wants to participate in the creation of performances, exhibitions, chamber concerts, and other creative content.

The story of Egység began back in 1890, when the famous architect, George Molnar, designed this building in honour of the 100th anniversary of the Shooting Association. After that, a life full of exciting events and unexpected upheavals followed.

The ‘Shooting Club’ was founded in Egység, which was one of the first associations of citizens. The first craft and industrial exhibition, the forerunner of the contemporary Novi Sad fair, was also hosted here.

Many citizens of Novi Sad mastered their first dance steps right here, while others enjoyed basketball games on its courts, however, all of them together created memorable neighbourhood stories at this place.

After World War II, Egység fell into oblivion and was neglected so much that it was almost completely dilapidated by the end of the 20th century. It returned to its original glory again in 2012, when it was completely renovated.

After receiving the title of European Capital of Culture, Novi Sad assigned the management of Egység to the Novi Sad – European Capital of Culture Foundation, so this space became Novi Sad’s first cultural station.

After winning the prestigious MIDEM award in Cannes, the best Serbian jazz band EYOT is coming to Doček 7531, at 13 January at 8 p.m. with the aim to combine the unlikely – the eclectic architecture of the most famous Novi Sad palace, Egység Cultural Station, with a music blend of rock and jazz, as well as punk and ambient music.
