The Roman Catholic Church, also known as the Name of Mary Church is a Catholic church that dominates one of the ends of Trg slobode in Novi Sad. It stares down the Town Hall and its spire reaches a dizzying height. The original Catholic church that stood on this spot was damaged during the Revolution in 1848, so the city’s Catholics decided to fund the construction of a new place of worship, which was completed between 1892 and 1894. This new Church had a 52 metre tall tower as well as Tyrolean wood fittings and tiles imported from Budapest. The Catholic Church was damaged in a fire in 1904, but it is nonetheless quite beautiful today and preserves a very Central European air to its architecture and decoration. The congregation is a mixture of various nationalities, but the majority of materials in the church are either in Croatian/Serbian or in Hungarian.

Address: Liberty square
