Sited next to the Hungarian border, undoubtedly the former Yugoslav leader Tito would feel splendid in Subotica, as it’s the mostly ethnically mixed town nowadays in the former Yugoslavia. This is not only reflected by the many languages that are spoken, but as well by the present religions. There is a huge synagogue, one of the largest on the Western Balkans (but nowadays almost not used any more and in a very bad state), and different churches. In this town, ethnic groups still life side by side. Like in Novi Sad, the Austrian-Hungarian culture had an important influence on the town; streets are clean and well-ordered; tourist information works professionally, the architecture reflects the Austrian dominance.
The most known monument is the reddish municipality building in the very centre; well known is as well the zoo “Palic” that may be reached in a 20-minutes bus trip by local bus, situated next to a small lake near the Hungarian borders.
Trains from Belgrade (every 2-4 hours) or frequent busses reach Subotica in a 3-hour-trip. The daily train and the night train to Budapest-Vienna both stop in Subotica.
