Bishop’s Residence

Zmaj Jovina street extends from Liberty Square to the Bishop’s Residence and is the main pedestrian and shopping zone in Novi Sad. It was once called Glavna (Main) street or colloquially known as Magazinski Sokak (‘Shopping Alley’). The street gained its current appearance after 1848, following the bombardment of Novi Sad from Petrovaradin Fortress. There used to be a market in the street and city trams would trundle through it. Today, the street is named after the famous children's poet and doctor Jovan ‘Zmaj’ Jovanović, whose sculpture stands at the beginning of the street in front of the Bishop's Palace. Affectionately known as Uncle Jova’s Monument, the statue is life-size and cast in bronze. It was unveiled in 1984 and is the work of architect Dragan Nikolić. At the beginning of Zmaj Jovina street stands the Bishop's Palace, the residence of the Serbian Orthodox Bishop of the Eparchy of Bačka. The residence was finished in 1901 according to plans drawn up by architect Vladimir Nikolić, who is also responsible for the contemporary look of many buildings in the centre of Sremski Karlovci.

The building’s façade is a mix of several styles among which Serbo-Byzantine Romanticism and Secession are dominant. The façade is also notable for the red brick it is built from, with yellow bricks and beautiful coats of arms of the rich Eparchy of Bačka added for decoration. Besides this, the building also houses a chapel which was painted by Russian painter Andrey Avsenev.
