History

According to old maps from the 16th and 17th centuries, a place named Bistrica existed at this location, before Novi Sad was founded in 1694. The name Bistrica is of Slavic origin (notably Serbian). It is not known what happened with this old settlement, since it did not exist any more in the 18th century.

The real estate development of Novo Naselje had begun in 1957, with construction of first buildings in the area today known as Tozinovac (part of modern Satelit). Concerted mass construction reached its peak between 1976 and 1980. This was also a period when the settlement received its present constitution. Construction has continued into the following period, but with lesser intensity.

Between 1980 and 1989, the seat of the Podunavlje municipality, one of the former seven municipalities of Novi Sad City, was located in Novo Naselje.
