Marija Trandafil is known as a great benefactor and bestower in the history of Novi Sad. She was born in a wealthy Popovic family in Novi Sad in 1816. She married Jovan Trandafil originally from Erdelj (Romania). Together with her husband Jovan she acquired considerable property that she turned into various legacies after the death of her closest family. She used her wealth for humanitarian purposes selflessly helping the needy in Novi Sad, poor students, the weak and the sick. ‘The Home of Marija Trandafil for Serbian Orthodox Orphans’ was founded on her demand. Since 1914 it was located in the building of Matica Srpska and from 1930 it was in a newly built property in Sajlovo, Novi Sad.

Today, this is the building of Scientific Veterinary Institute ‘ Novi Sad’.
