“Novi Sad Talking” will guide you to the city’s most significant locations. Your phone will captivate you with the history, events and the earliest recorded photos tied to these landmarks. We combed through the hidden history of these places to bring you anecdotes and intriguing facts that together bring out the historical soul of the city. Monuments come alive as they themselves tell the stories of the people who built them, the figures they represent, and their significance to Novi Sad’s and Serbia's history.
EASY TO USE
When you're ready to hit the sights, simply open the app, aim your phone and turn on the „Augmented Reality“ setting to find the nearest landmarks. You'll be able to open up an array of short stories about historical and cultural establishments that have contributed to Novi Sad being dubbed “Serbia’s Athens”. An audio guide will read the descriptions of each location, so you can keep your eyes on the beautiful architecture, and off your screen.
PLAN YOUR TOUR
Using the built-in map, you can plan your ideal tour of Novi Sad through the past and the present of this lively metropolis. The app will even recommend the best route based on your current location! Choose your path dependent on your interests or mood – walk past some of the most famous buildings in the city, or visit the most important sacred sites, the choice is yours!
Kulturarv uses the smartphone camera's live view to tag the noteworthy buildings real time while you are walking or driving. Additionally, the app supports several other well-known data sources and blends the media together. For instance, you can view the images around you from Instagram or Flickr on the exact locations they were taken. Or explore the tweets around you. The app can also show notable sites from Wikipedia that were tagged with location.
Buildings are retrieved from Fredede og Bevaringsværdige Bygninger (FBB) web service which provided by Danish Agency for Culture. Kulturarv renders those buildings and provides a backlink to the FBB site to examine more info on each item. The app therefore requires a constant data connection. Please note that the FBB service is sometimes unavailable and in that case you will be notified with an info message on the app. The app will however be still fully functional and you are welcome to use all the other data sources (e.g. Instagram).
Have fun exploring the cultural heritage!
