The former silk factory and a symbol of Novi Sad’s industrial heritage was restored after almost 200 years. Right now, as the Svilara Cultural Station, it gathers fellow citizens, artists, and creative workers, and involves them with the cultural activities of the city.
Located in the Almaš Neighbourhood, one of the oldest districts of the city, the Novi Sad silk dyeing factory worked full-time until the 1970s. Today, there is no longer silk in this area, but the old factory and the recognisable chimney persistently and for a long time kept the memory of the time when Svilara was the generator of the economic and social development of the area.
In the 21st century, Svilara continues to produce – this time, creative ideas and encouragement for creativity.
