The ‘Egység’ Cultural Station

The ‘Egység’ Cultural Station

The building of exceptional beauty, built in 1890, was a gathering place until the moment when it fell into oblivion at the end of the 20th century. In 2012, it was restored with the help of fellow citizens, and now, as the Egység Cultural Station, it opens its doors to everyone who wants to participate in the creation of performances, exhibitions, chamber concerts and other creative content. The story of Egység begins back in 1890, when the famous architect, György Molnar, designed the building in honour of the 100th anniversary of the Rifle Association. After that, a life full of exciting events and unexpected upheavals follows.

The ‘Shooting Club’, which was one of the first associations of citizens, was founded in Egység. It also hosted the first craft and industrial exhibition, the forerunner of today’s Novi Sad Fair. Many men and women from Novi Sad mastered their first dance steps right here, some enjoyed basketball games on its courts, and all of them together created memorable neighbourhood stories here. After the Second World War, Egység was left to be forgotten, and was neglected so much that it was almost destroyed at the end of the 20th century. It shone again in 2012, when it was completely renovated.

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