Approximate Location: Novi Pazar is considered to be the youngest city, not because of the time of its origins, which goes far in the past, but because it has a great percentage of young people. Novi Pazar is a multicultural and multi-ethnic historical city in southwestern part of Serbia. The city feels different (or let's say more oriental) comparing to other cities in Serbia. Predominant religion in the city is Islam (80%), although many historical monuments from both Islam and Orthodox Christianity can be found in the city, and in the region.
