Almaški Kraj (Serbian: Алмашки Крај) is a part of Novi Sad, Serbia. It is situated between the Almaška church and the Saborna church and includes parts of the Podbara, Salajka and Stari Grad neighborhoods.

History and culture[edit]

It was settled in 1718 by Serb families from the village Almaš, who thus named this part of the city Almaški Kraj ("the Almaš quarter"). The Almaš Orthodox church was built here in 1797. It is the largest Orthodox church in Novi Sad. The oldest cultural-scientific institution of Serbia, Matica srpska, is also located in Almaški Kraj.
