Literary Trail

Within the Future of Europe programme arch, on the day of the Fruška Gora Trail on 8 May 2022, the Novi Sad Children’s Cultural Center and the ‘Železničar’ Ski Mountaineering Club will open a Literary Trail.

Fruška Gora is a favourite destination for outings near Novi Sad. Home of the first national park in Serbia, it attracts visitors from all over the region . All around the year, many people hike the trails of this magical mountain that inspires scores of well-known poets and plays a significant role in cultural history.

So as to improve the visitors’ walks, we are inviting the youngest citizens of Novi Sad to participate in creating a unique ‘Literary Trail’ along which their peers, and all the visitors, will enjoy the beauty of nature and the poetics of beautiful words. Novi Sad Children’s Cultural Centre in partnership with the ‘Železničar’ Ski Mountaineering Club, invite children from elementary schools across Novi Sad and Vojvodina to choose their favourite quotes from literary works, with the assistance of well-known children’s authors, that will be displayed on educational information boards along the shortest trail during the opening of the Fruška Gora Marathon. These panels will feature interesting quotes from well-known literary works and QR codes with the data on the writers and literary works.

Children’s authors (Nikoleta Novak, Vesna Aleksić, Zorana Popović, Aleksandar Čotrić, Bojan Ljubenović and Gordana Vlajić) will also take part in the opening of the trail, with each author hosting one part of the trail. At the finish, an artistic programme organized for children will feature musicians, children’s choirs, children singers, actors, hosts, a theatre play for children, an environmental-educational workshop and a program with animators for children.
