Wi-Fi hotspots in Novi Sad
Novi Sad has a growing number of cafes with free wireless Internet access, so if you are coming for any reason and will have your laptop with you, here are just some of the cafes with wi-fi Internet access in Novi Sad.
Firstly, someone has done a good job of plotting their locations on Google Maps, so this could be useful (the map doesn’t work great for some reason, will work on it) – below the map is a list of addresses and comments for some of the cafes.
I have not been to all of these cafes to try out the wi-fi, but here are some comments for the cafes I HAVE been to – these are the only ones I can vouch for.
Telenor hotspot – Dunavski park (town centre)
One of the local mobile phone providers has just opened a great new, free hotspot in the Dunavski park which you should easily be able to find on any tourist map. The transmitter is housed in a big monolithic Telenor logo near the bandstand in the park, you can’t miss it. There you can sit in very nice, leafy surroundings and use wi-fi or USB-based net at your leisure. Only problem is, no power. Plus people might look at you strangely, the local population has yet to get used to seeing people working in parks with their laptops, but don’t worry about that too much.
Comments: Quite a new cafe, owned by the Novi Sad Radio021 radio station. Really nice atmosphere with relaxed young staff. Located in an old-style house with courtyard. Conservatory out back which is a bit less smokey, plus a garden for the summer. The radio station seems to have some offices here too. No problem with plugging your laptop into the power, there’s a power socket in the conservatory by the exit into the garden. Log-in to the network is no longer via a password, as previously.
Zmaj Jovina 4 , Novi Sad
Comments: Nice enough place, with a maritime them. Not very busy during the day. The name of the cafe is written in lower-case Cyrillic, which makes it practically unreadable to anyone, but you are looking for a word that looks like Mawa, with the “w” (actually a “sh-“) underlined. Fine about plugging in – there’s a table near a socket at the far back of the cafe – free access. Check out the semi-transparent doors in the toilets though!
Ritmo Latino Fiesta Caffe
Pleasant place with a constant rotation of customers during the day, playing mostly Latino music. Connect to the wireless network and then open your browser to log in. Staff happy to let you sit there all day, and no objections to plugging into the power either, if you manage to find a spot near a socket. Very reasonable prices – you can sit in there and drink coffee all day. Only problem is, gets very smoky, and also you need to go to the toilet at some point!
Sutjestka 2, SPENS
Not much to look at as a cafe, but in a handy location in the SPENS sports and shopping centre which is pretty close to the EXIT camp site. Net is free, no objections to plugging in, coffee is cheap. Also, you can sit “outside”, where it’s less smoky.
Bulevar despota Stefana 5
Very new and modern-looking cafe, very spacious so not too smoky during the day. A bit out of the way in terms of location – it’s in some warehouses some minutes walk up-river from the EXIT camp site, but might be handy if you are out walking by the river. Haven’t tried plugging in there.
Bulevar Oslobođenja 102 (Merkator shopping centre)
Supposed to have wi-fi and there is something floating about, but doesn’t seem to work, none of the staff could help me get it working and there was nowhere to plug in either, so not really worth bothering.
Coffee2Go (Kafa za poneti)
Bulevar oslobođenja (Merkator)
Free wi-fi available and somewhere to plug in too if you sit inside.
These are cafes in Novi Sad with known wireless hotspots, but I have not been there myself.
